Trivia / Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island

  • Acting for Two:
    • Mark Hamill not only voices Snakebite Scruggs, but also Shaggy and Scooby's airport supervisor, the ghosts of Morgan Moonscar and the Confederate general, and a plantation worker.
    • In the Mexican Spanish dub, Scooby-Doo and Jacques are both voiced by Francisco Colmenero, and Ricardo Tejedo voices Fred Jones and Snakebite Scruggs.
  • Bad Export for You: The film originally received a 12 rating in the UK. It had to be cut down by about 3 minutes to get a PG.
  • Career Resurrection: This was the movie that managed to revive interest in the Scooby-Doo franchise after a period of no new material, leading to a long-running series of Direct-to-Video movies that is still going to this day.
  • Casting Gag: Possibly the casting of Adrienne Barbeau (Catwoman from Batman: The Animated Series) as Simone Lenoir and Jim Cumming (Fat Cat from Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers) as Jacques.
  • Celebrity Voice Actor: Adrienne Barbeau provides the voice of Simone. She later branched out and did more voice acting in the years after this.
  • In Memoriam: To Don Messick, the original voice actor for Scooby-Doo who had passed away the previous year, just before recording began.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The two Skycycle songs were never properly released (a hokey synthesized version appeared on the soundtrack for Scooby-Doo! and the Witch's Ghost). Better make friends with someone who knows how to mix out sound effects and dialogue!
  • The Other Darrin: Scooby, Shaggy, Daphne, and Velma all have new voice actors (Shaggy is voiced by Billy West, and Velma's actress had previously provided vocals for a Johnny Bravo/Scooby-Doo crossover).
  • Recycled Script: The concept was originally a unfinished SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron episode, "The Curse of Kataluna" (which would've involved a Succubus). Suddenly, the Darker and Edgier tone (and all the cat-related motifs) makes a lot more sense. (Parts of it were also recycled by the writer, Glenn Leopold, for a season two ep, "Eclipse", of Jonny Quest: The Real Adventures.)
  • What Could Have Been: Tara Strong says that she and the other voice actors were originally going to speak in Cajun accents. She herself says she found the accent very difficult and Jim Cummings, a master of the Cajun dialect, said they didn't sound authentic, so they just went with typical Louisiana accents.
