  • This episode was aired in Latin America and Brazil on October 8, 2012.
  • The title spoofs Heart of Darkness, a famous novella by Joseph Conrad.
  • Randy Warsaw is a spoof on Andy Warhol.
  • Towards the end, Randy Warsaw repeatedly says, "I don't get it." In the 1960s, the clichéd response to Andy Warhol's art was "I don't get it."
  • The graffiti was in the style of the famous artist, Banksy.
  • In this episode, it is learned that without her glasses, Velma has green eyes.
  • Shaggy was once trapped in a mannequin factory for a month.
  • Billy West voiced the original incarnation of Shaggy in the first DTV, Scooby-Doo On Zombie Island.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • Just as Junk falls apart after capturing Clio, Velma can be seen with her glasses briefly on even though they were crushed by Randy.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs

  • Velma having green eyes is actually a continuity error since she had removed her glasses in The Creeping Creatures, and they were regular black.
