  • There is animosity between Scooby and Velma because of her and Shaggy secretly going to the prom in The Legend of Alice May.


Cultural references

  • 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.
  • In the background, there is a pirate suit very similar to Jack Sparrow of Pirates of the Caribbean.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Mr. E calls the gang, Mystery Incorporated, which they didn't take until the next episode.
  • 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.
  • Although unrevealed, the executioner would presumably be either Ed Machine (if not Mr. E).
