Cultural references

  • The base is a substitute for NASA.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Velma refers to the organisation as E.T.I.S., but the logo around the base has "S.E.A." written underneath it.
  • The moment Scooby laughs after scaring Shaggy in the space suit, it instantly vanishes, with absolutely no time to take if off.
  • Shaggy and Scooby didn't use the milk carton in the end, it seems to have been simply set up as a deus ex machina for later. If they had drunk any, it would've been open (or likely even finished).
  • Elliott Blender is miscredited as "Elliott Blinder." Additionally, the closed captions also make the same mistake, and also refer to Velma Dinkley as "Velma Dinkly."
  • Elliot complains in a later episode (Big Appetite in Little Tokyo) about being allergic to dogs. However, he makes no mention of it this episode, despite often being in close proximity to Scooby-Doo.
