A long term fan of Scooby-Doo, Tim Curry considers "Dreadful darkness, hear my cry. Bring back one who cannot die" to be his favorite line through his career as he believes this was an inside joke referring to Scooby-Doo (who entered the scene after the line was said). See more »
Velma is correct in stating that the modern-day word for "witch" comes from the word "wicca". However, "wicca" is a masculine Old English word that means "sorcerer", meaning that "witch" and "wicca" are technically synonyms. See more »

I'm not sure if "Scooby-Doo On Zombie Island" was supposed to create a new Scooby-Doo continuity with the many films being direct sequels. "Zombie Island" isn't alluded to at all here. What matters is that the animation in this film is great. It does seem to be on par with "Zombie Island" which was gorgeous. This was around the time 2D theatrically released films were declining. While these movies aren't as good as the animated DC films, they're still quite good. When you have a film this short, pacing is very important and that was done quite well here.
This movie does in fact feature an actual hoax but the way it builds itself after this reveal is quite interesting. While not as dark as the previous entry, it does get adult. It's funny how we get so much more serious and realistic stuff with the characters that aren't Scooby or Shaggy. It seems like all the comedy is focused on them and that works out just fine. I may not be the biggest Scooby-Doo fan, but these movies are enjoyable. Many people don't realize how many of them there are! ***
