    Trivia (14)

    • In the beginning of the episode, there is a somebody in the top of the mansion that sees Scooby and the gang arriving. Who is this? No face was shown, and it did not look like it could be the Phantom Shadow. Was it Mr. Crawls?

    • The Phantom Shadow scares away cousin Simple, but how did he escape from the Phantom Shadow? The only way could have been through a window.

    • As to the above mentioned trivia regarding Colonel Sanders' Confederate uniform: there are many people that take part in Civil War reenactments. It is highly possible that the Colonel was one of these people. It is also possible that he was just obsessed with the Confederate ideals. He did, after all, have an extensive collection of clothing and equipment from the time period, as well as the Confederate money.

    • When the Phantoms are chasing the gang, two were chasing Shaggy and Scooby and one was chasing Fred, Velma, and Daphne. This makes a total of three phantoms, however there were only two of them.

    • During the scene where Scooby is explaining what happened to him, Fred starts off wearing his pj's. Then when the focus goes off, and then back onto him, he is wearing his everyday clothes. Then another focus change, and he is back in his pj's!
