His appearance and the joke of Shaggy and Scooby coming to the realization they were in a coffin with the dead communist made this episode for me. I love the history of the USSR so it was nice to see them put his tomb into it like that, as it's a major Moscow landmark I imagine few people in the West known of.
More real things in real places the gang visits (other than big major landmarks which everyone knows of, like the Eiffel Tower) would be nice to see in future series's.
The scene in Lenin's tomb is one of my favorite moments in the whole Scooby franchise I liked setting the action in Russia as well. WB should create more episodes featuring european countries (but not only Paris, France or Transylvania). Europe offers plenty of legends (about ghosts, monsters, etc), historical events or places that can be used to make a great story!

yes both lenin and Stalin are enabled this way. ditto for Kim jong il and kIm Il Sung in North Korea.
I did not exactly think about dead dictators, here's much better stuff than these guys, but I got your point. For me Lenin's appearance in this episode was acceptable, but I know that for some people it can be controversial. I was just very positively surprised that creators featured such a (rather risky) detail in a TV Series for children, especially that Europe has been treated so far by WB very neglective and cliche so far(e.g. WNSD terrible Paris and Transylvania episodes).
