- This is the second season premiere of A Pup Named Scooby-Doo.
- The name "Scooby" is revealed to be a nickname of "Scoobert"; Shaggy makes fun of him just like Scooby did of him in The Sludge Monster From The Earth's Core when Shaggy's real name was revealed to be "Norville".
- This is the first appearances of Dada and Mumsy-Doo within this particular series, but they're referred to as Daddy-Doo and Mama-Doo, respectively, in a reversal of names.
- As part of the recurring gag, Scooby's parents also first laugh at Shaggy's jokes then don't understand afterward.
- This is the first appearance of Buster McMuttMauler. He's assumed to have died while locked away, but Catcher On The Sly reveals that he's very much alive, although Scooby doesn't refer to this fact, except for a typical scared reaction. Presumably because it was a Tom and Jerry-inspired short with no time for exposition.
- This is the first episode without the involvement of Tom Ruegger who ended his career with Hanna-Barbera to revive Warner Bros. Animation which resulted in Tiny Toon Adventures, among others. Incidently Hanna-Barbera would be absorbed into WBA which led into DTVs and What's New, Scooby-Doo?.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- None known.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- Yabba-Doo, Scooby's brother, is not mentioned. Possibly he is younger than the others and not yet born at the time of this episode.
- Mr. Trixenstuff looked much too heavy to play the ghost, who was slender and appeared to be floating around without legs.
- Dr. Needlemeyer wasn't at the party even though she said she would be. It's possible that she had already left or she hadn't yet arrived.

Shaggy: (narration) Like, it was a dark and stormy night, and the gang and I were at the Knittingham Puppy Farm. It was the night before the big Doo reunion, and we could not find my pet, a pup named --.
