Continuity mistake: Shaggy and Scooby stop to play a game of pool. When Scooby looks up and notices the ape head trophy has vanished, he has 4 of the balls by him, including the 6 ball. It cuts over to Shaggy, and he has the exact same set of balls next to him.
Continuity mistake: After Candy and the stunt man quit the movie, Mr. Maxwell says he has to withdraw his job offer to the gang as it's too dangerous. As the gang is shown, Scooby is sitting in front of Shaggy and Fred. It cuts to a close up of him as he gets excited about this, and suddenly Fred and Shaggy have vanished.
Continuity mistake: The Ape Man breaks the rope bridge that Scooby is on and it begins to fall. But by the Ape Man, the stakes holding the broken ropes are still in the ground at his feet. Scooby falls down and lands on a root, which bounces him back up where he punches the Ape Man. The stakes and broken rope have vanished.
Continuity mistake: The camera pans over the filming set and stops on the gang with Mr. Maxwell. There is a van behind them with the Ape Man movie poster on the side. The vinyl piece on the side of the van goes behind the poster and is lined up directly with the orange letters saying "EPI-CENTER FILM COMPANY." It then cuts to a close up of the poster and suddenly it has moved up on the vinyl and become smaller, lined up with the underside of "LOCATION No.2"
Continuity mistake: When the Mystery Machine is driving down Beach Boulevard, you can see Fred and Daphne are sitting in the front seat. When Velma locates Scooby-Doo on the radar using the transmitter in his collar, we cut to the Mystery Machine and Fred and Daphne have now gone.
Continuity mistake: When the gang are in the Malt Shop at the end of the episode, Scooby puts straws together to steal Shaggy's drink, and succeeds until Shaggy cuts the straw. But after Velma says "That closes the mystery!", Scooby starts drinking through his straw and we cut to the other four drinks on the table. This time, Shaggy's glass is completely full.
