YMMV: Scooby-Doo Meets the Boo Brothers
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The movie opens with one of these. A ghost (or witch) scares Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy into the car, while the trio sing about no matter how scary she is, the Boo Brothers are scarier.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: Much like Lord Farquard, Farquard's name may or may not be a play on "fuckwad".
  • Jerkass Woobie: Farquard the butler. He's fairly unpleasant to the Scooby gang, shows no concern for their well being, and seems just a bit unhinged. Still, if you served someone for more than 60 years and your reward was to continue your service, this time to someone you've never even met, you'd probably be hacked off a bit too.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Scrappy-Doo is a bit more bearable in this movie, since he's needed to solve the riddles until Shaggy gets enough of a clear head to figure out the last few. Also in the opening, when he heard about ghosts, Scrappy's first thought isn't to fight them, but that ghosts are neat. The two people he seriously confronts in the movie are the butler and the gorilla, neither of whom was a person in a costume anyway.
    • He also saves Shaggy and Scooby by tricking Billy Bob into getting chased away by a bear.
    • And Scrappy is the first to think that maybe the escaped ape isn't vicious, but lost and scared. He's right.
    • Still, it gets annoying at times the way Scrappy solves all the clues.
