Full credits

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


Cultural references

  • Andrew Jackson was the seventh President of the United States from 1829 to 1837, and he lived and died in Nashville, Tennessee.
  • The Country Music Hall is most likely an homage to the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum both located in Nashville, Tennessee.
  • At the end of the episode, Shaggy and Scooby referenced Reed's hit song, "When You're Hot, You're Hot", which was released in March of 1971.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • When the possessed mannequinns start chasing Shaggy and Scooby, they come out of a doorway twice on the dollies, when the first time should've been Shaggy and Scooby on the xylophone.
  • When Jerry Reed and the Gang are standing on the stage, Jerry Reed's sleeve is coloured brown for one shot.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • None known.

Home media

  • Due to expensive royalties owed to Jerry Reed (his estate as of 2013) in lending his likeness and voice to a fictionalised version of himself, Warner Home Video are unable to release this episode onto DVD.
