Production

Notes/Trivia

  • The trailer was released on December 8, 2020.[2] It contained the song "Loud" by Mustard Snorkel.
  • In his Tumblr blog, Atoms stated that The Sword and the Scoob! was originally meant to be the end of the Scooby-Doo! Return to Zombie Island trilogy, and that it had been completely storyboarded before he came onboard.[3]
  • This movie is not Grey Griffin's first time voicing Morgan le Fay. She has previously voiced the Marvel Comics version of the character as well.

Cultural references

  • The movie title recalls the 1963 Disney animated movie about King Arthur, The Sword in the Stone.
  • There are numerous references to the 1980 Ruby-Spears animated series Thundarr the Barbarian, which Daphne and Velma are revealed to be fans of, and actual footage from the show (with the sound redubbed) can be seen on an airplane passenger tablet at the start of the movie.
  • The opening scene on the airplane is reminiscent of the classic The Twilight Zone episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet", largely with the concept of a monster riding on the wing of an airliner and attempting to sabotage it during a storm.
  • Velma's outfit worn when she becomes Merlin's student and apprentice is a reference to the outfit Mickey Mouse wore in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" segment in the 1940 Disney movie Fantasia. Most obvious is the blue wizard's hat with white star and moon patterns on it.
  • The iris-out at the end of the movie is accompanied by the classic "beeo-woop" sound effect Bob Clampett created for the iris-outs at the end of his Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies produced at Warner Bros. Animation in the 1940s.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • When Mrs. Wentworth is released from her ropes after explaining the town's plan, her hands have her normal skin tone instead of the costume's much paler tone, but still also having Morgan le Fay's sharp, black nails. Perhaps not an animation error, but still strange.
  • When Mayor Saunders says his line 'Oh my, what's going on here?' after the dragon chase, Sandi's eyes turn brown.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • None known.

Quotes

Fred: DNA? Gee, that doesn't sound like mystery solving at all.
Velma: The only mystery is why anyone would try to solve anything without good old science to back them up.
