* AllThereInTheManual: While you would never be able to directly tell from this series, Mark was intended to be a Native American character even though he was still colored as such.
** In ''The New Scooby-Doo Movies'' episode crossover, "The Weird Winds of Winona", Mark's skin darkens significantly to better convey this but without this information, the viewer might as well assume he got a very bad suntan before the crossover.



* RaceLift: In ''The New Scooby-Doo Movies'' episode crossover, "The Weird Winds of Winona", Mark's skin darkens significantly. Apparently the character was intended to be of Native American descent but you wouldn't tell by how they colored him for the whole original series. So without this AllThereInTheManual information, the viewer might as well assume he got a very bad suntan before the crossover.

Speed Buggy was a talking dune buggy, apparently the grandson of Chugaboom from ''WesternAnimation/ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop''. When his mechanic, Tinker, wasn't driving him in a race, Speed Buggy fought crime with Tinker and his friends, Mark and Debbie. Speed Buggy also crossed over to ''Scooby-Doo'' and ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyBravo''.

Added DiffLines:

* TheLeader: Debbie is actually the leader of this group despite being the only female. The boys usually go along with her instructions. This is even lampshaded in the Amazon episode where the Amazon leader insists now Debbie can tell the men what to do, which Mark and Tinker try to explain sometimes they are lucky to get a word in edgewise.

* AnIcePerson: The titular enemies of the episode "Professor Snow and Madame Ice".



* FollowTheLeader: Speed Buggy followed on Hanna Barbera's meddling kids trend. The main cast follows roles similar (but not exactly like [[note]] In direct comparison Tinker and Speedy both have a very similar dynamic to Shaggy and Scooby. Debbie is the actual leader of this group so technically you could say she is designed to look like Daphne but has the Fred role. Mark is designed to look like Fred but he himself is not the straight guy leader that Fred was. He's playing the Daphne & Velma to Debbie's Fred. While Tinker is the smart guy as well as the coward. There are similarities but not close enough to be expies.[[/note]] ) to characters from Franchise/ScoobyDoo but the plots are more akin to WesternAnimation/JosieAndThePussycats.
