Full credits

The following credits try to match how they are displayed in the comic as much as possible:


  • It seems that Shaggy is accustomed to the idea that his life will be one monster plot after another, so much that he sees them everywhere.


Coloring mistakes

  • None known.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Shaggy is visiting home from some school where he has a winter break, and his parents refer to him as a teenager, which suggests this story is set early in his history. Or continuity is just being ignored.
  • Another continuity that is being ignored is that the fact that the gang is supposed to all come from Coolsville (as was mentioned in The Roswell Riddle, yet Shaggy implies that it would be impossible for them to see each other.
