|Dr. Laslow Ostwald||He was using Velma to test his virtual reality game. The Osomons weren't real, and neither were her friends.|

- Velma (and the rest of the gang) met Dr. Ostwald in the season two episode, High-Tech House of Horrors.
- This episode is not only the third season finale, but also the series finale of What's New, Scooby-Doo?.
- E-Scream was originally scheduled to air on April 23, 2005, but was preempted for ¡Mucha Lucha!.
- Technically, there was no monster or bad guy or mystery in this episode, as the whole thing was just a game.
- This episode was released five months before it had aired on the DVD What's New, Scooby-Doo?: Volume 8 - Zoinks! Camera! Action!.
- The episode's title may be a pun on the gaming conference called E3.
- This is the only time in standard continuity that the Mystery Machine can change into another vehicle with the press of a button. Coincidentally, the van transforming into different vehicles was one of the gimmicks in the next series to follow, Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!.
- There were four clues that helped Velma solve the case.
- Fred didn't want the gang to split up.
- Daphne wore a green shoe instead of another purple one and didn't care about them not matching.
- Shaggy and Scooby actively volunteered to be live bait.
- The big giveaway was that Shaggy said "Toinks" instead of "Zoinks".
- This also means that Velma knows Scooby, Shaggy, Freddy and Daphne extremely well.
- This episode was included in Cartoon Network's Scooby-Doo! Back to School Marathon (August 10-11, 2013).
- The Osomons are a play-on on either anime, Pokemon or Digimon.
- Gooey-Oh is a play on the anime, Yu-Gi-Oh!; also, the spikes on top of the Gooey-Oh toy is similar to Yugi's/Atem's hair from the Yu-Gi-Oh! TV series. Just like, WNSD; both Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh! were aired regularly on Kids' WB.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- Daphne's green shoe turns purple when Tad and Mitch walk away with their Gooey-Oh creature, and when she is taken away by the Osomons.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- The opening scare scene shows the Osomons coming out before Velma started playing the game. Perhaps Dr. Ostwald was exercising a scene he later decided to delete.
- What's New, Scooby-Doo?: Volume 8 - Zoinks! Camera! Action! DVD released by Warner Home Video on February 21, 2006.
- What's New, Scooby-Doo?: Complete 3rd Season DVD set released by Warner Home Video on January 8, 2008.
