Trivia: When Shaggy looks out into the cavern, he looks like he is about to cry, for no reason at all. This is because there was a scene directly before it in which Daphne's spirit thing was sucked out and she turned into a monster, which was eventually cut because it was too scary.

Trivia: After the Mystery Machine crashes through the wall of the warehouse at the start of the film, a group of girls run to Fred for his autograph. The girl at the front of the group is director Raja Gosnell's real-life daughter.

Trivia: When Shaggy and Scooby walk into the kitchen, in the ride, and Shaggy says "lights, camera, action." He walks by a camera on a tripod pretending that it is supposed to be there. But a few seconds later, we see a shot of Shaggy coming from that exact angle, it is obviously being used to film the movie.

Trivia: Writer James Gunn originally wrote the film to be a darker, edgier comedy geared more towards adults who grew up with the original cartoon than geared towards children. (His intention was for the film to be rated PG-13.) However, it was edited down to a family-friendly PG rating after parents complained during test-screenings, and because the studio felt the film should ultimately be aimed at children. Among the content cut for the PG rating was a kiss between Velma and Daphne, some crude jokes, and footage with (very) visible cleavage, which had to be covered up with CG.


Trivia: Before Rowan Atkinson was cast as Emile Mondavarious, Tim Curry was offered the role, but declined after realising that Scrappy-Doo was in the movie, a character Curry dislikes.

Continuity mistake: When Daphne jumps off the stairs to help the park owner her boots clearly change to trainers in mid flight and then back to boots when she lands. (00:40:50)

Question: If the airport and a plane don't allow dogs, then why is a cat is allowed on a plane?

Answer: Maybe because cats are smaller than dogs and all felines are relatively the same size and fit into a small pet carrier. Dogs range in size from a few pounds to over a hundred, making crating them more difficult.

I should add that this being a movie, they make up their own rules about things to serve the plot. It's unlikely in real-life that an airline would ban dogs entirely, though there may be size limits.
