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: Many Harry Potter fans went to see the film just to see the trailer for "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" - the first time it was ever shown.


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: In the beginning of the movie during the skateboard scene with Shaggy and Scooby riding along the conveyor belt, Scooby grabs a hook and both Shaggy and Scooby jump off of the skateboard. You see the skateboard falling off the conveyor belt, but in the next scene it is on the conveyor belt and being crushed. (00:03:20)
