Full credits[]

The following credits are how they are seen on-screen (or as close as possible).



Cultural references[]

  • Andrew Jackson was the seventh President of the United States from 1829 to 1837, and he lived and died in Nashville, Tennessee.
  • The Country Music Hall is most likely an homage to the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum both located in Nashville, Tennessee.
  • At the end of the episode, Shaggy and Scooby referenced Reed's hit song, "When You're Hot, You're Hot", which was released in March 1971.
  • The title of the episode is likely a reference to the Gaston Leroux's 1910 novel The Phantom of the Opera (Le Fantôme de l'Opéra in the original French language). This spawned several media adaptations, including Andrew Lloyd Webber's English-language musical, which premiered over a decade after this episode aired.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches[]

  • When the possessed mannequins start chasing Shaggy and Scooby, they come out of a doorway twice on the dollies, when the first time should've been Shaggy and Scooby on the xylophone.
  • When Jerry Reed and the Gang are standing on the stage, Jerry Reed's sleeve is coloured brown for one shot.
  • Towards the end of the episode, as Shaggy and Scooby notice that the statue of the Viking is missing, Scooby's arm is gone for a few frames before he points to the empty space where the statue should be.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities[]

  • When Jerry plays the notes contained in FEBAG, the wrong pitches sound.
  • Velma incorrectly calculates the number of pizzas (worth $1.50 each) $2,000,000 could buy. She states 1,333,033 when it should be 1,333,333.
  • May 2 and May 3 fall on Friday and Saturday, respectively, in the episode. However, in 1972, the year the episode was released, the respective days of the week were Tuesday and Wednesday.
    • It is possible that the universe in which the show takes place follows a fictional calendar.
    • It is also possible that this episode (and the rest of the series) takes place in 1969, the year the franchise's first series Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! aired.
  • This episode takes place in May, but an earlier episode took place in June. It's possible that it serves as a prequel to this episode.
