Added DiffLines:

* CreditsGag: In the episode “That’s Monstertainment”, Zomba's movie has a custom Hanna-Barbara logo which resembles the MGM logo with Scooby-Doo in it. Scooby-Doo creators William Hanna and Joseph Barbera had started out as animators at MGM Studios.
** The logo is also customized: it reads "Ranna-Rarrera" (Hanna-Barbera in Scooby's dialect) and has the logo read "limitus animatus" (which is Latin for "limited animation", which Hanna-Barbera was famous for).


Added DiffLines:

* TakeaThirdOption: Bogel and Weerd use a villainous version of this in the pilot. [[spoiler: they stage a game show for Shaggy and Scooby where they have to choose between Scooby Snacks, fuel for their crashed pilot, and a box. Shaggy wants fuel, Scooby wants the food, they settle for the box... which turns out to be the Chest of Demons.]]

* CutShort: Scooby-Doo and his friends never ''did'' catch all 13 ghosts. Only 11 ghosts were shown being caught at all - and no ghosts were captured in the pilot.

** The Time Slime by looks appears to be the ghost of some kind of skeleton-like demon who is also something of a mechanical genius and time traveler (his end goal is described by Van Ghoul as turning the world into a "mechanical wasteland").

* NoEnding: There are 13 ghosts and 13 episodes. But the first episode was just Scooby and Shaggy accidentally letting them loose, and another episode didn't end with a captured ghost. So the show ended with just ''two'' ghosts left, and no conclusion.

* WhatTheHellTownspeople: When we first see him, one of the first things Flim Flam says is that his product is good for removing unwanted curses, jinxes and evil spells. Too bad the townspeople didn't listen sooner, with it being a perfect cure for their werewolf curse.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The series starts with Scooby and Shaggy tricked into opening the Chest of Demons. As Vincent Van Ghoul states in the opening narration as to why they have to do this, "Because you '''let them out!!!'''"

* CutShort: Scooby-Doo and his friends never ''did'' catch all 13 ghosts. Technically, only 11 ghosts were shown being caught at all - and no ghosts were captured in the pilot.
** This is debatable, as there was an episode or two where they could have conceivably caught others. The last episode did seem to be written with EndOfSeriesAwareness.
** Also, outside the episodes that were shown, they might have returned one of the 13 ghosts to the chest.
