Jeepers It's the Creeper - S2-E3

Other mistake: There is a scene where the gang is the home of the Bank President, just after dropping off the injured bank guard. At one point the Bank President is standing behind an end table of some kind with a lamp on it. Even though there is nothing underneath the table to block your view you cannot see the lower part of the Bank President's leg. It looks like it has been cut off.

Spooky Space Kook - S1-E15

Question: We never found out what the ham and chicken bones had to do with anything. They were ham and chicken until Scooby ate them. Afterwards, Shaggy wonders why the ghost would keep ham and chicken in the fridge. This was never answered in the episode. Why were they important?

Piemanmoo

Chosen answer: A ghost wouldn't have to keep any food in the fridge - they don't need to eat. So it is one thing that proves the ghost is not a ghost.
