Sarah Michelle Gellar, Matthew Lillard and Freddie Prinze Jr. had a long history of working together prior to the first two live action movies. Both Lillard and Prinze starred in the 1999 films "Wing Commander" and "She's All That," the latter of which also had a brief uncredited appearance from Gellar. The 2001 film "Summer Catch" featured both Lillard and Prinze as well, with Gellar in a small role. Prinze and Gellar would also star together in "I Know What You Did Last Summer," and Gellar and Lillard worked together in "Scream 2."
Thanks to Becker for coming up with this fun fact!
In Scooby-Doo and Guess Who's "A Run Cycle Through Time," at one part in the episode, Velma appears to be riding a unicorn on the carousel time machine in close up shots. However, in long-distance shots, she is shown to be riding a bicycle.
In addition, as a minor bonus fun fact, the days of the week given for each of the dates are incorrect. July 9, 3535 is a Tuesday, not a Thursday, and October 10, 4646 is a Saturday, not a Friday as it is said in the episode.
Many people erroneously think that The Scooby-Doo / Dynomutt Hour included the only 16 episodes of Dynomutt that were made. However, Dynomutt spun off and became its own show for a four-episode season 2 (before being cancelled), which ran alongside The Scooby-Doo Show season 2. These episodes, all named after the respective villains, were titled "Beastwoman," "The Glob," "Madame Ape Face," and "Shadowman."
For today's fun fact, to celebrate SCOOB! Week, we have a very special guest writer with us. Michael Kurinsky, the production designer for SCOOB!, is with us today to share this week's fun fact!
"Scooby-Doo and Hanna Barbera fans will need to do many repeat viewings to catch all the Easter eggs we hid in the film. As for my fun fact, I did all the scratch dialogue for Shaggy throughout the making of the movie!"
Thanks so much to Michael for taking time out of his busy schedule to write this!
In addition to being the first voice of Daphne, Indira Stefanianna Christopherson also had a major singing career with her husband, Raul Danks. The two of them collectively made up the band Danks, and their biggest hit was called "Mountain of Love," which you can listen to above!
Daphne's surname was not revealed as Blake until 1983, in "No Thanks, Masked Manx." This last name was retconned from Daphne's uncle Matt, who appeared seven years earlier in The Scooby-Doo Show episode "A Bum Steer for Scooby."
Rachel Kimsey, who voiced Wonder Woman in the Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? episode "The Scooby of a Thousand Faces!", also played Daphne in the Scooby-Doo! Stagefright stage production in 2003!
Thank you so much to Bradford Smith for sharing this fun fact!
In the classic 1971 Rankin-Bass Easter special "Here Comes Peter Cottontail," Casey Kasem uses his Shaggy voice to portray the main character, Peter Cottontail.
It's also worth noting that Vincent Price voices the villain, January Q. Irontail, 14 years before Price and Kasem would collaborate again in The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo.
In the Gold Key Comics adaption of "Go Away Ghost Ship," Redbeard is much more violent than he is in the episode. In one panel, Redbeard punches Shaggy in the face and gives him a black eye.
Thank you so much to Scoobyfan4ever for sharing this fun fact, as well as the image, with me!
For today's fun fact, we have a guest writer! Bradford Smith did the research on this and contacted Mark Lewis, and was kind enough to submit it as a fun fact to the site!
According to Mark Lewis, a character clean-up artist, in the original script for “Scooby-Doo! and the Witch’s Ghost”, Mystery Inc. was shown traveling to multiple places around the globe, including a stop in London where a parade was held and they got to meet the Queen. Unfortunately, as so many crowd scenes weren’t possible on their direct-to-video animation budget, and the scenes weren’t relevant to the film’s main story, they were edited out during the rewrite process and never even made it to the storyboards.
Thanks so much again Bradford for doing the research on this and writing this fun fact!
