Cultural references

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • Presumably it's intentional, but Shelly's nametag is empty, as are the police officers'.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Despite Cookie Co. International Park being an abbreviation on the stadium's front sign, everybody calls it "Cookie Company International Park".
  • When Scooby-Doo first sees Mr. Grizz, he mistakes him for an actual grizzly bear and attacks him. This makes no sense; Scooby would've been no match for a real grizzly bear, and it's generally out-of-character for Scooby to act so aggressive.
  • The way Fred just walks up to Luis, anyone could do the same and say they entered the competition. Presumably he gave proper identification details off-screen.
  • It's worth noting that nobody except for Bob Taylor (John Stephenson) pronounces Cab Craig correctly, which may question if it even is supposed to be pronounced that way. Other characters almost pronounce it as if they're saying "Cab Cray" (or even "Cab Grey").
  • Shaggy produces a torch when he's in the pitch black after falling into Potters Stadium.
