Trivia / The New Scooby-Doo Movies

  • Acting for Two: Jonathan Winters voices both himself and his farmer friend Maude Frickert. This is because she was a character he created for his comedy act in Real Life.
    • Casey Kasem voiced both Robin and Shaggy in the Batman episodes. Fortunately, his impression of Burt Ward is sufficiently good that it's not immediately obvious.
      • A bit more obvious when the Scoobies team up with Josie and the Pussycats, given that Kasem's Alexander Cabot voice is incredibly similar to Shaggy's, and that both are cowards.
  • Edited for Syndication: Until it began airing on the Cartoon Networknote , reruns divided each episode into two parts.

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: In 2005, Warner attempted to release a DVD set with the full series, but was refused the rights to several of the celebrities and characters that were guest stars, including The Addams Family, Josie and the Pussycats, Davy Jones, Sonny and Cher, and Jeannie. A "Best Of" DVD was released with 15 episodes containing the guest stars for whom Warner had been granted the rights. The opening titles of the DVD of this release were also edited to remove all the guest stars. Later developments that WB can release other shows containing those characters has raised questions of exactly how many of the nine others are holding up the release. And even back then, the first release has a "1" on it which, back then, barring one outlier, meant they at least planned to put out a "2". This also affected streaming and downloading, but did not affect broadcast, and all 24 episodes were in regular rotation on Cartoon Network and Boomerang in the 1990s/2000s, and still today whenever the show airs. In 2019 (the year of the Scooby-Doo franchise's 50th anniversary), Warner announced that eight of the nine "Lost Episodes" would finally come to DVD, both by themselves, and in an "(Almost) Complete" DVD and Blu-ray with the installments cleared in 2005.

  • Missing Episode: As of 2019, Warner apparently still can't release "Wednesday is Missing" (the one where Scooby meets the Addams Family) on DVD.
  • Role Reprise:
    • The guest appearance by the Addams Family has John Astin, Carolyn Jones, Jackie Coogan, and Ted Cassidy reprise their roles as Gomez Addams, Morticia Addams, Uncle Fester, and Lurch.
    • The two episodes featuring Batman and Robin have Olan Soule and Casey Kasem reprise their roles as the Dynamic Duo from The Adventures of Batman, in addition to Larry Storch and Ted Knight reprising their respective roles as the Joker and Penguin.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: Likely applies to this more than any of the other Scooby-Doo shows. While modern-day kids will almost certainly know who Batman and Robin, The Addams Family, and the Harlem Globetrotters are, and probably even The Three Stooges and Laurel and Hardy, most of the other celebrities and characters will likely just leave them scratching their head as to exactly who they're supposed to be.
