  • This is the last episode to involve 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 Scooby-Doo direct-to-video films, and eventually the TV series, What's New, Scooby-Doo?
  • The title of the episode is a play on the phrase: lights, camera, action.
