* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: In "It's a Wonderful Scoob", some time after Scooby-Doo goes into a TenMinuteRetirement and Time Slime opened the chest of demons, Vincent Van Ghoul shows him the BadFuture that resulted in it. But would this ''really'' happen if Scooby's decision to quit the gang stuck, or was this all [[TricksterMentor a big illusion created by Van Ghoul specifically]] [[ScareEmStraight to scare Scooby straight]]? Considering that Time Slime wanted to destroy those kids for good (his words), and Scooby's replacement was nowhere to be seen in the Bad Future, the latter seems more likely.
* EarWorm: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozEQM02feGo&feature=related The theme tune.]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Vincent Van Ghoul. Then again, he is voiced by ''Creator/VincentPrice''.
* EthnicScrappy: Flim-Flam is a subversion. He was a TokenMinority, but didn't behave in a stereotypical way, though this didn't make him less annoying.
* FollowTheLeader: The show followed on the coattails of ''Film/{{Ghostbusters|1984}}'', and it shows. Also a case of such things not always being bad.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: To his haters, Scrappy was considerably better received in this series. Then again, that might've had to do with Flim-Flam being viewed as worse by those fans.
* TheScrappy: To a lot of viewers, Flim-Flam is even ''more'' of a Scrappy than the {{trope namer|s}} himself. Most of the show's hate goes to ''him'' instead of Scrappy-Doo.
