* CastingGag: The reason Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Geller were cast was because they wanted to cast a real Hollywood couple as Fred and Daphne.

* AdoredByTheNetwork: Some iteration of ''Scooby-Doo'' used to air on Creator/CartoonNetwork ''every'' day. In recent years the selection has been limited and now on the main channel it's mostly just an occasional movie.

* AdoredByTheNetwork: AdoredByTheNetwork:
** ''Where Are You'' originally aired alongside two other new Hanna-Barbera series, ''WesternAnimation/DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop'' in the fall of 1969. By 1970, ''Where Are You'' proved to be such a ratings success for {{Creator/CBS}} that it was the only one of the three to be renewed for a second (admittedly smaller because of a time crunch) season. The 1971 reruns continued to excel with audiences, forcing the network to ask for [[{{WesternAnimation/TheNewScoobyDooMovies}} a brand-new Scooby-based series]].

* PromotedFanboy: Creator/JamesGunn was more than happy to write an adaptation of his favorite cartoon.

* PromotedFanboy: Creator/JamesGunn was more than happy to write an adaptation of his favorite cartoon. Although this does bother some fans due to his not playing the material straight, that is a reminder there are more than one way to be a fan.
** Cardinelli plays it a bit straight who happily notes to have watched Scooby Doo for many years even as she went away to college.

** While the film has plenty of self-aware humor as it is, the original plan was for a straightforward PG-13 self-parody along the lines of ''Film/JosieAndThePussycats''. Shaggy would have explicitly been a stoner and Daphne and Velma would have had [[LesYay a closeted lesbian relationship]]. After ''Pussycats'' flopped, the project was retooled to a "hard" PG, cutting out some of the more adult material but leaving in all of the gross-out jokes.

** Creator/MikeMyers was also interested in playing Shaggy, and both Creator/ChristinaRicci and Lisa Jakub (Lydie from ''Film/MrsDoubtfire'' and Alicia in ''Film/IndependenceDay'') were both considered to play Velma.

* OldShame: Freddie Prinze Jr. (Fred) and Sarah Michelle Gellar (Daphne) don't think very fondly about the live action film. Among other things, Prinze hated wearing the trademark ascot, and Gellar hated wearing Daphne's trademark Go-go boots. Linda Cardellini states that she felt that the final cut of the film could've been adjusted a bit more.. Originally played straight but later averted with Matthew Lillard. Originally Lillard stated he regretted working on the live action films as it seemed to ruin his movie career, but once he became the full time voice of Shaggy in the cartoons following Casey Kasem's retirement he's since changed his mind, and now thanks the movies for leading into a consistent role for him to play.

** The film had been in DevelopmentHell as far back as the 90s, with Jim Carey as a possible Shaggy and Sara Gilbert as Velma. Creator/KevinSmith was attached to direct at one point too (which suddenly makes Mystery Inc.'s cameo in ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack'' make a lot more sense).
