Songs

Songs Credits Performed by Character performance by

Notes/trivia

  • 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, which gives a hint as to where this episode takes place.
  • Another hint that this episode takes place in Tennessee is the name of the hotel. Andrew Jackson was the seventh President of The United States from 1829 to 1837, and he lived and died in Nashville, Tennessee.
  • Jerry Reed also lived in Nashville, and passed away there on September 1, 2008.
  • The song used in this episode ("Pretty Mary Sunlight") was previously used in the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode, Don't Fool with a Phantom; in that episode, it was performed by George A. Robertson, Jr..

Cultural references

  • 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 statues 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. 

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.
