** Mostly averted in Brazil, with only Fred not having his original actor as of ''What's New…'', basically the inverse of English. While the other teens' actors [[DawsonCasting are now in their 70s]] (Scooby's in his 90s), Fred's new voice actor is in his early 30s, and he sounds believably like a teenager.

* WagTheDirector: Casey Kasem was a staunch vegetarian, and only agreed to play Shaggy so long as the BigEater never ate meat. He refused to play the character any more after being forced to voice him for a 1997 Burger King commercial, at which point Creator/BillyWest filled in to complete ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooOnZombieIsland'', making it the only time West voiced him. Kasem was eventually lured back a few years later when the creators agreed to make Shaggy a vegetarian. Of course, following Kasem's passing in 2014, all bets are now off.

Scott Innes (who also provided the voice of Scooby after Don Messick's death until Frank Welker took over) took the reigns as Shaggy for the next few years. Kasem was eventually lured back a few years later in 2002 for ''What's New, Scooby-Doo?'' when the creators agreed to make Shaggy a vegetarian. Of course, following Kasem's passing retirement in 2014, 2009, all bets are now off.

* CreatorBacklash: Joe Ruby and Ken Spears didn't like ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', feeling that it missed the point of the characters and was too cynical. Some other writers seem to agree, as a few of the Direct-to-DVD have at least one joke at the series expense. Although the design work in some cases does borrow from MI's art style.

* AwesomeDeadBoy: According to the DVDCommentary, several of the music acts, including Shaggy ([[NamesTheSame the reggae singer, not the character]]) and Music/{{Outkast}} agreed to appear on the soundtrack because the name "Scooby Doo" was fun to sing.

** The dog was originally a sheepdog named Too Much, but ''WesternAnimation/TheArchieShow'' (which was also on CBS) already had Hot Dog, Jughead's pet sheepdog. An H-B staffer raised Great Danes as a hobby, so they made the dog a Great Dane. It was Fred Silverman and (indirectly) Music/FrankSinatra who gave the dog the name Scooby-Doo.

** The film was originally intended to be aimed at an older audience, including nudity and sexual/drug-related humour. Some of the early trailers included this material, which was cut when the studio decided to aim for a PG rating.

** The While the film has plenty of self-aware humor as it is, the original plan was originally intended to be aimed at an older audience, including nudity for a straightforward PG-13 self-parody along the lines of ''Film/JosieAndThePussycats''. Shaggy would have explicitly been a stoner and sexual/drug-related humour. Some 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 early trailers included this material, which was cut when more adult material but leaving in all of the studio decided to aim for a PG rating.gross-out jokes.

* AscendedFanon: It was a common joke that in the original series Daphne and Fred were somewhere having sex, though in the actual series there was really nothing to imply that any of the gang were anything but platonic. It wasn't until years later that Daphne and Fred became {{Implied Love Interest}}s, and then eventually just straight-up love interests.

** "Old Man Jenkins" has become the term for the everyman Scooby-Doo villain. While there was a suspicious old man named Mr. Jenkins in one episode of the original series, but he turned out to be innocent.

* WagTheDirector: Casey Kasem stopped voicing Shaggy in 1997 after having to voice the character in a Burger King commercial, since Kasem was a devout vegetarian. He returned to voicing Shaggy in 2002 under the condition that Shaggy became a vegetarian like Casem himself. Now that Kasem is gone, Shaggy has gone back to his old ways.
