  • This takes place at Velma's alma mater (most likely the high school seen in The Spirit Spooked Sports Show).
  • By an odd coincidence, the successful football team there is called the Devils, and so is the usually unsuccessful football team at Coolsville high school (Cheers for Fears).
  • In this story, Shaggy asks Velma about the football team name and seems to find it unusual. He may be kidding around, because he's a fan of the football team at his school.
  • Velma had detention once (and only once) at her school for getting into a fight with a boy named Mickey Murphy after an "overheated debate" between the math club and the science club.

Coloring mistakes

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

"Friday Night Frights" by Robbie Busch keeps the Gang in good cheer with superb-character based jokes, and an attention to the Gang's camaraderie. The mystery's solution is a no-brainer, and it's still fun to watch Mystery Inc. piece together the puzzle pieces.

Scott Neely makes the most of a good monster design, and he buddies Busch's gags with fitting poses some of which he must imagine without the benefit of a model. For instance, the bit where the Gang split up benefits from Daphne's big grin. Not seen on the show but extrapolated for the comic book beautifully.[1]
