Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- While Shaggy is driving to Pingree's, his eyes are closed and then open for a second. Normally, the opposite should happen.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- The gang could have easily purchased Myrtle as a fan in exchange for their broken toaster.
- General Hepler wanted to use civilians to locate Myrtle, in order to be as inconspicuous as possible. So he chose the "most normal" people who entered the store: a six-foot tall beatnik, a redheaded bombshell, and two talking dogs, one of whom was gigantic, while the other one walked upright.
- General Hepler said that if the gang were caught, he'd deny knowing them, but then near the end of the episode, casually walks into the store and asks Alphonse where they were.
- It's never revealed whether or not Daphne was able to return her toaster.
