Full credits

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


  • This is the second and last appearance of Don Knotts, but unlike Guess Who's Knott Coming to Dinner, it's truly him, instead of the ambiguity of another character.
  • This episode features uncredited monster designs by Alex Toth.[1]
  • There are a few references to The Andy Griffith Show:
    • The town name, "Juneberry", plays off Mayberry, the town in The Andy Griffith Show.
    • Knotts played police officer, Barney Fife.
    • Sheriff Dandy Griffith is based Andy Griffith, who played Sheriff Andy Taylor.

Cultural references

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • When Shaggy and Scooby are driving in the coal car, Shaggy yells, "Help!", but his lips don't move.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Although Don had met the gang previously in Guess Who's Knott Coming to Dinner, the gang and Don don't know each other. This is despite Scooby recognizing Homer Pipsqueak as Don Knotts.
  • When Don reminds Shaggy to whistle as per Fred's instructions, he claims that he "...can't even hum" and asks Don to whistle instead. However, Shaggy is seen whistling on-screen in previous episodes.

Don Knotts: Nice try, fella. But my instruments don't lie, see that speedometer?
Fred: But that looks like an RPM gauge!
Don Knotts: (checks the gauges) Darn it! Happened again. Someone switched my gauges when I wasn't looking.

Fred: (unmasks the Skeleton Man) Gene Haultrey! You're the criminal mind behind all this!?
Gene Haultrey: It's true. And I could've gotten away with it, if it weren't for you people!

Don Knotts: You're coming with me, Haultrey!
Scooby: (licks Don)
Don Knotts: Watch it, kid. This is police business!
