- Nice Rapids
- This episode's flashback to Mystery Inc.'s younger years is done as a homage to the predecessor series, A Pup Named Scooby-Doo.
- In this episode Taylor Lautner guest stars as Ned (the Clown's first victim).
- Because of Velma's clown "allergy" (phobia) and Shaggy's determination to golf, they effectively switch roles and personalities during this case; Shaggy is the smart, brave, and bold one, while Velma is the "scaredy cat".
- Ned and Stacy could be a reference to the short-lived NBC sitcom, Ned and Stacy.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
