|"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
- None known.
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.

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 --.
