Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • As the gang and the Globetrotters start to drive off to Uncle Nat's house the Globetrotters' dog appears briefly, but since he doesn't appear again it's more than likely an animation mistake. Their bus driver, Granny was also briefly seen.
  • Twice Meadowlark has a mustache.
  • When Selby first appeared as himself, he was quite fat. But when he was unmasked, he was much thinner.
  • When the sea serpent tries to swap the boat (near the end of the episode) the second time, Scooby disappears for two seconds from the boat (in the air), and as the boat falls down to the surface of the water, Scooby re-appears. But when the boat splashes, Scooby's place is hidden by the water, and he suddenly appears on the sea serpent.
  • Also, while Fred and Shaggy were rowing in the back seats, and Meadowlark and Curly in the front, when Shaggy says that the sea serpent got Scooby, their places are switched.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Shaggy, Scooby, Meadowlark, and Curly thought that the Minuteman was a real ghost because the heavy ball went through him, but if one looks closely, the ball went between his legs inside going through him.
  • When the ghosts chase Daphne, Velma and the Globetrotters into the abandoned cabin, the group manages to escape when one of the Globetrotters dons a bear skin rug. However, the ghosts shut the door after and exclaim "there's no escape". The ghosts technically shut themselves inside the cabin while the group had already escaped. The scene may have been intended to come after the group runs into the cabin.
