In the early stages of working on the title card, Tracy Mark Lee did original line art and rough sketches of Mudsy and Boo, before being told to use Abraham Lincoln, to keep the former a surprise for older Hanna-Barbera fans.[1]



Cultural references

  • The title is an allusion to the real-world Abraham Lincoln's House Divided Speech on June 16, 1858.
  • Muddlemore refers to the Burr-Hamilton duel.
  • Having fictional Abraham Lincoln promoted as the celebrity guest, hides the real guest star attraction, that this is a crossover with the cast of The Funky Phantom.
    • The cast of Hanna-Barbera's Speed Buggy also makes cameos in this episode.
  • When Fred suggests that they "head 'em off at the pass", Daphne replies with "I hate that cliché!" Slim Pickens and Harvey Korman had the same exchange in the 1974 Mel Brooks film Blazing Saddles.
  • While trying to work out how Muddlemore is faked, Velma mentions Pepper's Ghost Effect. This refers to a magic trick that dates from the 18th century, using lights and mirrors to create a ghost effect, or to transform one person into another[2].

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • None known.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Even though this is supposed to be a continuation of The New Scooby-Doo Movies, Shaggy & Scooby are in hysterics at the idea of Speed Buggy being a talking car, despite having had an entire case together in the aforementioned series episode The Weird Winds of Winona.
  • How the statues became ghosts is unknown.

Fred: We've got a van, with "Mystery Machine" painted right on the side.
Augie: Paint that yourself, did you?
Fred: I totally did... (catches on to the insult) Hey!

Ghost of Abraham Lincoln: A mystery solving team divided shall not stand. It breaks my heart to see such skirmishing.

April: We found this. Do you know what it is?
Velma: I know exactly what this is. And now this memory stick totally makes sense.
Mudsy: A memory stick? Is that like a broomstick but for brainy bits? I certainly could use a good sweeping, don'tcha know.

Fred: Hold the phone... The fake ghost of Abraham Lincoln has a point.

Fred: Since when does a ghost drive a tractor?
Augie: We did that bit already.
Fred: Oh. OK, sorry.

Jebb: And I would've gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for you meddling kids--um--er--ten of you!
