Full credits

The following credits are how they are seen on-screen (or as close as possible).


  • The Harlem Globetrotters are the only celebrity guests from season one to appear in season two.
  • Not only was this the Harlem Globetrotters' final guest shot on The New Scooby-Doo Movies, this was also the final animated appearance of Meadowlark, Gip, Pablo and Bobby Joe. Only Geese and Curly would return in animated form on Hanna-Barbera's The Super Globetrotters (NBC, 1979–80), with the addition of three new members: Twiggy Sanders, Nate Branch and Sweet Lou Dunbar.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • If one looks very closely at the Globetrotters bus when they are following the Mystery Machine to the Picnic Island Queen in the beginning, Granny, their driver, and Dribbles, their dog mascot, are both in the bus.  

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • The scheme cooked up by the villains in this episode seemed pretty elaborate; they were never arrested by the authorities which is odd because they did, after all, kidnap the Globetrotters, and Mystery Inc..
