    At the end of the episode Bravo Dooby-Doo, when the Scooby gang and Johnny try to unmask the Ghostly Gardener, the following people/characters can be seen:

    - Professor Hyde White, from the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode "What A Night for a Knight" (1969). As an extra note, this character wasn't the villain in that episode, just a suspect/victim of the real villain.
