Don't Fool With a Phantom - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: The gang find Jonny tied up in a chair and he says it wasn't a publicity stunt. Both his arms are tied up to his sides by the rope. It cuts from the close up to show them all again, and suddenly Jonny is holding his hand to his head and Fred is suddenly pulling on the rope, his arm outside of the rope. (00:02:45)

Jeepers It's the Creeper - S2-E3

Other mistake: There is a scene where the gang is the home of the Bank President, just after dropping off the injured bank guard. At one point the Bank President is standing behind an end table of some kind with a lamp on it. Even though there is nothing underneath the table to block your view you cannot see the lower part of the Bank President's leg. It looks like it has been cut off.

That's Snow Ghost - S1-E17

Plot hole: It's established at the end that Greenway used transparent skis to create the illusion that the Snow Ghost could fly. But there's no way skis could have enabled Greenway to fly over the gorge, especially from a standing position. (00:05:30)

Don't Fool With a Phantom - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: After the mystery is solved, the gang are driving away in the Mystery Machine. Shaggy and Scooby are in the back marveling at their wax dummies. Velma, Daphne, and Fred are in the front seat and can look back at them. But when it shows an angle from in front of them, the inside of the van behind Fred, Daphne and Velma can't be seen, only a solid gray wall where you should see Scooby, Shaggy, and their dummies, and even the back doors of the van. (00:20:50)

Never Ape and Ape Man - S1-E7

Shaggy: Scooby-Snacks won't work on me this time.
Daphne: Would you do it for a Shaggy-Snack? A little something I whipped up.
Shaggy: Huh? A Shaggy-Snack?
Daphne: Yes, it's a pot-pie, with pizza crust, anchovies, pepperoni, cherries, all in a thick chocolate sauce.
Shaggy: Hahahaha! I'll do it! I'll do it!

More trivia for Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!

Answer: During most episodes of "Scooby Doo, Where Are You?," the gang often split up to explore the latest haunted mansion or abandoned windmill or deserted amusement park. Scooby and Shaggy would generally end up together, Velma would often go off alone, and Daphne would frequently go exploring with Fred. It seemed to be a running theme in the "Scooby Doo" cartoons that Daphne was perpetually flirting with Fred. Fred, however, always seemed much more obliviously preoccupied with finding the next clue, foiling Daphne's amorous intentions. I have always been under the impression that the Scooby-Doo gang was a pretty sexually ambiguous group. More than a few people have suggested that athletic, well-coiffed, ascot-wearing Fred, and bookish Velma were early archetypes of gay/lesbian teens. The show existed in a time when several cartoons suggested sexual ambiguity in its characters: Effete Snagglepuss, a repeatedly drag-wearing Bugs Bunny (who even appeared in TV's first same-sex wedding with phallic rifle-toting Elmer Fudd), prim and polite gophers Mac and Tosh, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Schroeder and Linus from the "Peanuts" cartoons. But whether or not any then subversive homosexual undertones were ever intended in any of the characters, the oft-paired Daphne and Fred never seemed able to get their relationship beyond the lukewarm stage, much to Daphne's apparent chagrin.
