  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: After the gang fall when Alexandra causes Josie to open the automatic door, Valerie's skin is very pale in the next shot.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Alexander: I wonder what's in the pot?
      Melody: I hope it's clam chowder. I just love clam chowder. (laughs)

    • Josie: Ooooh! A creature plant! (She and Valerie start beating on it)
      Alexandra: Oh! Help! Stop, you beady brains! Stop!
      Melody: Oh golly! It sounds like Alexandra. The plant must have eaten her. (Starts sobbing)
      Josie: It is Alexandra!
      Alexandra: Who were you expecting, Scooby-Doo?

    • Valerie: Jungle drums!
      Alexander: That's an unfriendly beat if I ever heard one!
      Melody: I'll teach them a groovy beat. (Drums on a hollow log with a pair of sticks)
      Josie: Melody, stop!
      Alexandra: Knock it off, Melody! If the headhunters hear you, they'll know where we are.
      Melody: Oh, don't be silly, Alexandra. They know that already. Look!

      Alexandra: Yikes! (Everyone else gasps)
      Alexander: Now I know how General Custer felt!

  • NOTES (1)


    • Alexandra: Who were you expecting, Scooby-Doo?

      This is an obvious reference to the mystery-solving great dane, one of Hanna-Barbera's most famous cartoon characters.

    • Alexander: Now I know how General Custer felt!

      Reference to a major historical event in the 19th century, known as Custer's Last Stand.
