Full credits

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


  • Mr. Teller mentions the "king of Siam." Siam is the old European name given to Thailand in Southeast Asia.
  • Conway passed away on May 14, 2019.

Cultural references

  • Tim Conway states that he became a coach because he wanted the role of Coach Knute Rockne in a biopic. Knute Kenneth Rockne (1888–1931) was an American football player and coach, both at the University of Notre Dame. He is regarded as one of the greatest coaches in college football history.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • None known.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • In this episode, it is stated that Velma went to high school, without the rest of the gang, but in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! it's assumed they all went to the same one.
    • The fact that Velma spent a portion of her high school years in a school different from the rest of the gang (though ending up graduating with them at Coolsville High) is confirmed in the DC Comics stories, Friday Night Frights and Cheers For Fears. That's of course, if the comics are anything close to canon with the animated series.
  • For no apparent reason, Shaggy is reading a book at the beginning of the episode, which is out of character for him.
  • The high school looks more like a university; it could also be a type of boarding school.
  • It is revealed that Mr. Finster and Mr. Griffith's twin are the ghosts, but while both ghosts are chasing the gang, Mr. Finster is seen (albeit in shadow) in the booth above the stadium observing the action.
