    • Asa Shanks: And I'da found it if it wasn't for you snoopers!

    • (deciding on which road to rake at the fork) Shaggy: Let's flip a slice of bologna to decide. Daphne: What?! Shaggy: Heads we go to the left and I eat it...tails we go to the right and I eat it. Velma: How can you have heads and tails on a slice of bologna? Shaggy: Heads is the mustard side...tails is plain!

    • Shaggy: Help! I’m drowning! Call the Coast Guard! Velma: Stand-up. The water’s only knee deep.

    • Daphne: (points at the footprints) Look at that! The tracks go different directions. Shaggy: I’ve seen guys do the splits, but this is ridiculous.

    • Daphne: Footprints! Fred: Let’s follow them. Shaggy: You guys go ahead. Scoob and me will stay here with old face-in-the-box. Velma: Aren’t you curious? Shaggy: Not a bit. Scared? Yes. Curious? No.

    Notes (5)

    • The Headless Spectre appears in Scooby Doo Night of 100 Frights.

    • Villian #1: Penrod Stillwall Reason: He wanted to scare snoopers off so he could search for his hidden family fortune. Villian #2: Asa Shanks Reason: He was searching for the Stillwall fortune.

    • When ABC reran this episode 1977 through 1984, network censors cut out a few seconds of footage during the chase song in which Shaggy, Scooby and Velma ride a makeshift bicycle (actually an old knitting loom) through a window and onto a utility wire before bouncing off the top of a pole and into a well. The edit has them riding out the window and immediately falling into the well.

    • Hal Smith provides several incidental roles in this episode.

    • The song Love the World, which is featured in this episode, appears on the album Scooby-Doo's Snack Tracks: The Ultimate Collection.

    Trivia (6)

    • When Asa Shanks gives directions to the Gang, he mentions taking a left or right at the fork in the road. However, when he says left, he points right and when he says right he points left.

    • How did Shaggy manage to survive balancing on a thick wire, and then a big fall landing in shallow water?

    • If Asa Shanks wanted to make the gang avoid going past the Haunted Mansion, why couldn't he just pretend that the right fork leads them nowhere?

    • Although Shaggy, Scooby, and the headless specter all ride on balloons out of the well, it would be impossible to hold their weight in real life.

    • How can Shaggy, Scooby and Velma slide down a bannister while wearing suits of armor?
