Trivia and curiosities

The Enduro-Slam 5000 is televised from its desert location in Mexico.

Shaggy’s vegetarian diet includes bowls of beans from a gas station.

Final thoughts

“The Fast and the Wormious” pays humorous homage to both The Fast and the Furious and Tremors.  Other than that its an episode that’s off the rails.  Once upon a time, Scooby Doo would try to explain how the special effects were pulled off.  They didn’t bother to mention how a giant homemade tarp-mobile could dig underground at breakneck speeds.  Oh well, its just a cartoon.
