Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • A Scooby Snack was reintroduced to the comics, but it was called a "Scooby Treat."
  • It was both Scooby and Shaggy that wouldn't budge, but only Scooby was bribed.
  • When caught, Jean was wearing the long, black wig over her own real, short brown hair, seemingly so Shaggy would recognise her as the kidnap girl, but continuity-wise, there was no need for it.


Shaggy: Uh uh! We draw the line at fire-breathing dragons!
Daphne: Maybe a "Scooby Treat" will change your mind!

Jean Canard: We would have gotten away with it, if it weren't for those meddling kids and that dog of theirs!
