  • TBA


  • UK premiere date: November 10, 2010.
  • Angie Dinkley's book, I'm Okay, You're a Scary Gnome parodies the famous psychological self-help book, I'm Okay, You're Okay.
  • Two paramedics taking the frozen pirates to the theatre look suspiciously like Randolph Mantooth and Kevin Tighe from the popular 70s TV show Emergency, where they played paramedics.
  • Some of the men coming into the Royal Knights Fair seem to be dressed as Dirk the Daring from the game Dragon's Lair.
  • Sheriff Stone's notebook with Jen's report clearly reads "NUTS!!" on the top.
  • The fact that everyone apart from Velma is dressed in fair costumes is similar to that in Large Dragon at Large, but here, Shaggy and Scooby are out of the fair's topic.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • After Scooby frees Shaggy and they fall into the hole, Shaggy's pirate hat clearly falls near it, but not in it. However, when Shaggy and Scooby climb out of it, Shaggy has it on his head.
