|This needs a stretch.|
The gang heads over to Knittingham Puppy Farm, to celebrate the Doo family reunion, and for Scooby to claim the Doo family heirloom, a jeweled collar. But before long, the ghost of Buster McMuttMauler, a dogcatcher who tried to steal the collar long ago, is after them claiming the collar is his.

|"Dog Catcher Guy"||Credits||Performed by|
- This is the second season premiere of A Pup Named Scooby-Doo.
- The name "Scooby" is revealed to be a nickname of "Scoobert", which Shaggy finds funny.
- In the previous shows, Daddy and Mama-Doo were called Dada and Mumsy-Doo, respectively.
- As part of the recurring gag, Scooby's parents also laugh at Shaggy's jokes then don't understand afterward.
- Although Buster McMuttMauler is assumed to have died while locked away, 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 that he's a dog catcher). 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. Incidentally, Hanna-Barbera would be absorbed into WBA, which led into a series of direct-to-video films, and eventually a TV series, What's New, Scooby-Doo?
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- Scooby's brother Skippy wears a red collar, but when he showed Velma his new computer it's the same color as Scooby's. In the final scene it went back to red.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- Presumably, Knittingham Puppy Farm is in Coolsville, although it's exact location is unknown.
- 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 or she wasn't in the same room.

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 --.
