    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (9)

      • Goof: In an early scene, Alexander says "Me three" in a very high-pitched girlish voice.

      • Goof: Valerie's pink sleeves are the same shade of violet as the rest of her outfit on a number of occasions. First, when she's seen with Scooby-Doo after Sebastian first scares him, Alexander, and Shaggy, then when she's first seen fixing the ship's engine with Fred and Daphne, and later when she's caught in the cargo net with the rest of the group.

      • Goof: When Valerie begins a test run of the ship's engines, Daphne's pink stockings are missing, showing her legs bare.

      • Goof: When Captain Scavenger blows the ship's whistle to jolt Sebastian and Alexander, the pinstripes of the latter's pants are missing.

      • Goof: When the Scooby gang's ghost traps catches Captain Cannaby by mistake, Fred calls for Valerie to deactivate it, but it's Velma, Shaggy, and Scooby who's doing so and setting him free in the process.

      • Goofs: When the gang escape from the clutches of Captain Scavenger and Injun Joe via the raft, Valerie is first seen as pale-skinned. Afterward, they further trick the two by intentionally untying their raft and making it look like it's breaking down to its logs. All the gang group onto one as the villains pass them on a motorboat. Fred then lassos their motor and the gang is able to follow them closely on the log. But if you look closely, two are missing. Velma and Sebastian are nowhere in sight with the others, but seen only after the log crashes into the villains' motorboat.

      • Goofs: After Scooby and Shaggy defeat the so-called ghosts of Captain Scavenger and Injun Joe in their usual unusual fashion, Alan in surprise says "I don't believe it!". The following line after that is "I don't believe them!" which seems to be said by Alexandra, but with her brother Alexander's voice. Also, the top portion of Josie's outfit (except for her sleeves) is the same shade of dark blue as her skirt.

      • Goof: When Injun Joe is out of his ghost makeup, he's seen as an ordinary villain with dark skin. One shot in the scene when the gang explained the ghosts' plot, however, had his face as white-skinned while the rest of his body was still dark.

      • Goof: Valerie seems to be in two places at once in the final scene. She's performing with Josie and Melody in her cat costume, and then is seen in her regular outfit on the bridge calling for Fred and Alexander to get more steam for the showboat.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Shaggy: HEEEEELLLPP!!! MAN OVERBOARD!!!!
        Fred: Who?
        Shaggy: ME!

      • (After a bungled escape attempt with Shaggy and Scooby)
        Alexander: I'm beginning to think that being followed by ghosts is safer than following you two!

      • (Upon being discovered by the ghosts, Shaggy, Scooby, and Alexander each attempt to escape through a porthole with Alex not even able to get his head through)
        Alexandra: You'll never make it, brother dear, unless you lose about 10 pounds of fat--BETWEEN YOUR EARS!!!
