  • Production-wise, these are the last appearances of Daphne's parents in animated form.
  • Despite being innocent as the monster Bigwig, it's possible that Daphne banned Crissie and Durwood O'McDigitson from the Videorama due to their hostility toward the gang.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • As Scooby lassoes his tail to save Daphne from falling, then end of it changes color to match the pink helicopter for a few frames. 
  • When Scooby lowers Daphne down to the ground using his tail, her scarf changes color temporarily to that of her jumper.
  • When Bigwig appears outside Durwood O'McDigitson's house, Daphne's tights are missing.
    • Also, her leg disappears intermittently for a few frames.
  • In the shot of the gang after Durwood exclaims "It's my garage!", Daphne's tights are missing.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Daphne's parents have been redesigned from their original looks in Robopup to resemble their daughter; in their previous appearance Daphne's mother was a full bodied and a blonde, and her father was a brunette. This is likely due to all the other parents resembling their kids in the Scooby-Doo Detective Agency.
  • The pile of uncooked spaghetti that Crusty Baker serves to Shaggy and Scooby resembles a pile of hair more than anything else. (Perhaps this was intentional, to act as a clue).

Shaggy: (narration) Like, it was a tough job. The gang had been hired to work at the video arcade, including that all-time video champ of Coolsville, a pup named Scooby-Doo.

Shaggy: Like, noone knows more about great pizza than me and my pal, a pup named...
Scooby: (eats a slice of pizza) ...Scooby-Dooby-Doo! (chuckles)
