James Valentin, and Richard Valentin
- The pre-teen Velma also had an invention of her's chosen to go into space in the previous series episode, Dawn of the Spooky Shuttle Scare.
- Two of the scientists resemble characters from Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!: Dr. Jekyll from Nowhere to Hyde and Professor Ingstrom from Scooby's Night with a Frozen Fright.
- Frank Welker and Colleen O'Shaughnessey are uncredited as Reggie and the brown-haired policeman and Celia Clyde, respectively.
- Janet is one of the only (female) culprits to try and escape after being caught; she even harms the police to get away.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- Fred is missing his eyebrows when Velma tells the rest of the gang that Janet works with E.T.I.S. at the base.
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.
