  • This is probably the first time in the Scooby-Doo franchise where an episode makes a reference to a real social issue: drugs.
  • When this episode aired, Nancy Reagan's Just Say No campaign was prevalent; this campaign from the 1980s and early 1990s was part of the U.S. War on Drugs and it was used to discourage children from engaging in illegal recreational drug use.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • None known.

Inconstitencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • In the beginning of the episode Red Herring gets pinched by a lobster after scaring Scooby and the gang. The lobster is bright red. Lobsters acquire their red color after being boiled. Live lobsters are actually a dark greenish-brown color.
  • How does Velma know this much about drugs that she can recognize them at first glance?

Shaggy: (narration) Like, Velma got a call one morning, and the next thing we knew, the Scooby-Doo Detective Agency were on its way to the beach.
(Freddie, Daphne and Velma stop to see Shaggy (and Scooby in his sidecar) riding behind and straight into some industrial cans; they both happily pop back up)
Shaggy: (narration) Her aunt's the head of the marine institute, and it seems their dolphins are disappearing.

Freddie: Okay, Red, time to pay up.
Red: No way, drip. You were working on another case. As far as I'm concerned, I don't owe you bozos anything.
(As Red walks away, Scooby trips him into the dolphin pool with his tail.)
Red: (Skipper bops him up and down on its nose) Okay, I'll pay! I'll pay! (Skipper continues to play with him)
Shaggy: Like, collecting bills is easy for Skipper and a pup named...
Scooby: ...Scooby-Dooby-Doo!
