''Any''way, we shift to darkest Transylvania, where Count {{Dracula}} is holding a meeting of monsters at his castle. It's time to decide the Monster of the Year, but the {{Werewolf}} is absent, having gone into retirement. With one of the most iconic monsters AWOL, Dracula is about to call the contest off until he learns of a special night--three of them--when the moon comes into position to make a ''new'' werewolf. Unfortunately, that new werewolf is none other than Shaggy!

Unfortunately, that new werewolf is none other than Shaggy!

Added DiffLines:

* DeusExMachina: At the end, Dracula manages to catch the group in a magic storm tornado that should keep them up hoisted in the sky helplessly all night long until they run out of time in changing Shaggy back. Dracula opts to try to get it on camera - [[LaserGuidedKarma only for the storm to zap him.]] Without explanation, the weather completely disappears and everyone realizes ''they somehow landed on a passenger jet plane'', riding it back to America without even having to lift a finger to save themselves at that point.


* SmallRoleBigImpact: Wolfgang has almost no dialogue except at the very beginning of the movie and disappears form the story entirely soon after the race begins (being briefly seen operating a camera filing Dracula at the beginning of it) but he is the one who first shot Dracula the book on how to make a new werewolf, and how to make Shaggy that werewolf.

Eh? What's that? Since when was ''[[ButtMonkey Shaggy]]'' a hot-shot professional race car driver with a [[UglyGuyHotWife gorgeous girlfriend named Googie?]] Since, like, ''always'' man, don't you pay attention?!

* ArtShift: Compared to the previous two Scooby-Doo movies in the ''Hanna-Barbera Superstars 10'' series, which used hand-painted cel animation, this one was digitally colored in-house at H-B.[[note]]The actual animation was done overseas by Creator/WangFilmProductions and Creator/FilCartoons.[[/note]] At times, the [[SpecialEffectsFailure limitations of the early computer system really show]]. This and ''[[WesternAnimation/YogiBear Yogi]] and the Invasion of the Space Bears'' (which came before this one) were the only two movies in the series to use digital ink-and-paint.

Added DiffLines:

* VillainousBreakdown: As Shaggy continues to navigate the racecourse with ease and conquer every obstacle, Dracula becomes angrier and more determined to stop him from winning.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: There are a couple of times where Dracula quotes ‘‘Series/TheHoneymooners’’ at Vanna Pira like, “Right to the moon! Bang! Zoom!” and “Pow! To the moon!”

Added DiffLines:

* EvenEvilHasStandards: The Hunch Bunch, the plant monster, and Vanna Pira are horrified of Dracula planning to unleash Genghis Kong as a last resort to stop Scooby and Shaggy from winning the race.


* AssKicksYou: Done unintentionally during the "Doing the Werewolf Rock" number, when Repulsa knocks Shaggy aside with her butt at one point.



** All the other drivers at the end of the race were shocked when they realized Genghis Khan is about to collapse on them.

* ILied: Whenever the Count is called out for breaking a promise, [[HoldYourHippogriffs he claims to have had his fangs crossed]]. Good thing Vanna-Prya's ditziness wound up helping in the heroes in the end.

* InsultMisfire: When they first arrive in Transylvania, Shaggy points at Swampthing and Dragonfly and says "That's a whole week of nightmares!", and Swampthing laughs, thinking he's talking about Dragonfly. Each thinks and says that Shaggy was talking about the other. Averted immediately afterwards when Swampthing insults Dragonfly ("[Shaggy] means you, gnat nose.") and Dragonfly shouts "Who are you calling names?!"
