  • In this episode, Fred tries to shortcut the formula by trapping the villain before the mystery is solved. Unfortunately, it doesn't work.
  • The title is a parody of the famous song, "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend".
  • Shaggy mentions having eaten at a wrestling arena, a reference to previous episode Wrestle Maniacs.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • Shaggy's neck is too fat when he's carrying Scooby.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Velma has a never before mentioned love for ice hockey. While it may appear to be an inconsistency, it's possible it's something she came to love over time off-screen.
