    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Just before going into the anthropological museum, we can see a statue on the right and read: "Museo anthroporo". It's not English, of course, but it's not Spanish either. In Spanish, it would be: "Museo antropológico".

      • When Fred's talking about Spanish letter "Ñ", he writes on his notebook "MANAÑA", the Spanish word for "tomorrow". But the real word is not MANAÑA, it is MAÑANA.

      • During the beginning when taking pictures, Daphne's stockings disappear, then reappear.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Sofia Otero: (speaking to some kids) Now, forget all about this scary monster nonsense and play with your skeletons among the tombstones.

      • Daphne: Okay, Fred, how do you say "hopelessly lost" in Spanish?
        Velma: It looks like the woods get thicker up ahead.
        Daphne: Do you suppose we'll meet any wild animals?
        Fred: We might.
        Velma: Mostly coyotes and jaguars and boars.
        Daphne: Coyotes?
        Fred: And jaguars?
        Velma: And boars.
        Daphne: Oh, my!

      • El Curandero: The answers to all your questions can be found in the past. Oh. And did I also mention you're in grave danger?
        Daphne: (slightly nervous) Uh, no, I think you skipped that part.
        El Curandero: (ominously) You're in grave danger.

      • Shaggy: (talking to Scooby) Whoever heard such a ridiculous story? A 10-foot hairy monster with big feet and sharp teeth? Sounds like something out of a cartoon!

      • Doña Dolores: Diego Fuente used to do business with my late husband. I don't trust him, never did. He is a... how you say in America?
        Fred: Crook?
        Daphne: Liar?
        Velma: Con man?
        Doña Dolores: (waits a beat) Jerk!

    • NOTES (5)

      • In Spanish, "Chupacabras" means Goatsucker since Chupacabras tend to pray on goats.

      • In the chase scene, the gang passes a movie theater.. saying... Now Playing Legend of the Vampire, which was the previous movie.

      • El Chupacabra is an animal that has been seen in Puerto Rico originally, but has migrated from there to Florida and Mexico. It's kryptozoological, meaning there is no hard evidence it exists.

      • This episode was actually produced at Hanna-Barbera Studios (which has recently reopened) rather than Warner Bros. Television Animation.

      • Out of all the Scooby direct-to-video features thus far, this is the first not to have the "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You" theme in it....or any Scooby theme for that matter!

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Daphne: Coyotes, wolfs, and boar oh my!

        That is another spin-off from The Wizard of Oz quote "Lions, and tigers, and bears oh my"!

      • Skeleton/Mr. Smiley: Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

        This is a spin-off of The Wizard of Oz quote "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain".
