- Don Knotts guest stars for the first time in this episode, whether or not it's actually him. His second and last appearance is in The Spooky Fog of Juneberry, where he actually does play himself.
- Don Knotts passed away on February 24, 2006. Aside from his two appearances on The New Scooby-Doo Movies, he also lent his voice to the 2002 video game, Scooby-Doo! Night of 100 Frights.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- The gang entered the gateway twice already, then later the tires of the Mystery Machine, seem going.
- When the Mystery Machine is shown driving through the winds from an aerial view, it seems to be much longer than usual.
- Daphnes mouth moves, but Velma's voice is heard after Velma steps on a loose board on their way to the kitchen.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- While it's clear that Don Knotts guest stars in this episode to the audience (his name is even introduced in the title card, as all celebrity guests are), what's unclear is whether or not he's playing himself or look-a-like, Homer Pipsqueak. His surname is used as a play on words in the episode's title, and at the beginning of the episode Scooby thinks he sees Knotts in the bushes, but no one believes him and when Homer reveals his true identity only Scooby thinks it's Knotts, but is quickly corrected when the detective only gives his name as Homer Pipsqueak. Interestingly enough, Knotts's caricuture in The Spooky Fog of Juneberry was also a law enforcement officer.
- Captain Moody's nieces (and one remaining nephew) didn't show up to the feast.
- When Shaggy and Scooby are chased back to their bedroom in Moody Manor by the Ghost of Captain Moody, Scooby closes and locks the door. After he realizes Shaggy is still in the hallway, he opens it back up, to which Shaggy shuts it and jumps into bed. When the camera returns to Scooby at the door, the door is somehow wide open again.
- The gang run inside the closet in Daphne and Velma's room to hide. When they realize the Ghost is in the closet, they all run out, except Daphne. When the Ghost of Captain Moody floats out, the camera shows the whole gang, including Daphne, a moment later, cowering by the door, although Daphne never actually left the closet.
