Trivia / Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island

  • 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 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.)
  • Talking to Himself: Mark Hamill not only voices Snakebite Scrugs, but also Shaggy and Scooby's boss at the airport, the ghosts of Morgan Moonscar and the Confederate general, and a plantation worker.
  • 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 (who is Cajun) said they didn't sound authentic, so they just went with typical Louisiana accents.
