  • "The Mystery Machine" written on the side of the van has been changed to "Le Machine Mystere".
  • At the end, Danica is wearing Daphne's original outfit, only in inverse colours (e.g. light purple dress with a dark purple lining).


  • Disguises: Daphne as Danica; Scooby as a poodle.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • None known.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • A small brick wall for Daphne briefly materialises in the middle of the road just so she can sit while putting on her galoshes.
  • Velma mentioned the coin Fred was using was a Franc, but those stopped in 2002, three years before this episode aired.

France stopped using Francs in 2002.

  • It's completely impossible for Scooby, Shaggy, Fred and Velma to beat Daphne and Danica (the latter still in her Gargoyle disguise) to the exact location before they do.
