  • This episode is full of homages to the original series, it even includes a laugh track.
  • At the start of the episode the case the gang is solving is similar to Which Witch is Which from Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!.
  • Curtis dresses up as Hong Kong Phooey, another Hanna-Barbera animated anthropomorphic dog who fights crime.
  • There's a Wizard of Oz reference as a person costumed as the Cowardly Lion tells Shaggy, (in disguise as one of the Scarecrow Robots) "Carl, I thought we told you to meet us by the snack table. Honestly, sometimes it's like you don't even have a brain." In the background are the Tin Man and Dorothy.
  • The werewolf disguise Shaggy uses to trick the scarecrows is the same as his werewolf form from Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • At the party, Shaggy and Scooby came in wearing Robot Scarecrow costumes. During the song, they no longer have the pumpkin masks and they are getting into the music (ignoring the dangerous robots in the room). A few seconds later, they are in normal clothing and the scarecrow overalls have disappeared as well.
