  • The film had its world premiere held at TLC Chinese Theatre on January 6, 2018. Participants included Kate Micucci (Velma) and Diedrich Bader (Batman).
  • This isn't just this incarnation of Harvey Bullock's first appearance in terms of crossing over with the Scooby-Doo franchise, but also the first time in the Brave and the Bold universe.
  • Professor Milo's "rodent-related" demise happened in the teaser of the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode Gorillas in Our Midst, due to the Spectre turning him into cheese and letting his own rats loose on him for consumption, albeit off-screen.


Cultural references

  • It's a crossover with the continuity of the former Cartoon Network series Batman: The Brave and the Bold, with the majority of the cast coming back, including Diedrich Bader.
  • Bates Burger, Hanni-bowl, and Pasta Al Capone at Arkham Asylum are named after Norman Bates from the film Psycho, Hannibal Lecter from the film Silence of the Lambs, and the early 20th century crime boss Al Capone.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • None known.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • This doesn't follow on from the Hanna-Barbera continuity of The New Scooby-Doo Movies, with the gang never having met Batman before, although they've heard of him. Incidentally, the Batman: The Brave and the Bold series did have its own HB parody continuation in the episode Bat-Mite Presents: Batman's Strangest Cases!.
  • This also breaks continuity with how the Scooby-Doo! Team-Up comic chose to follow on from The New Scooby-Doo Movies, with most of the guest superheroes and supervillains in this movie having already appeared in the comic.
  • It's argued that putting Scooby in the driver's seat wouldn't work out well because he's a dog, yet he drove in Scooby-Doo! Camp Scare and Scooby-Doo! Stage Fright. Even if he was winging it, he had a license in Scooby-Doo! Moon Monster Madness (unless it was photoshopped like Velma forging a badge to allow him to be in a hospital in Scooby-Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur).
  • It's unclear what happened to Batman's sidekicks. It's possible as with his own old costume put on display, that the sidekicks put their older costumes on display.
  • In the Brave and the Bold TV series, there was always one Robin who became Nightwing (outside of alternate futures and realities), so it's unclear who the costume belonged to.
  • As a rarity, Fred and Daphne get romantic interests with the superheroes, but neither of them show jealously of the attention the other one gets.
