- Radium dials like on Mr. Moss' alarm clock were popular from the early to the mid-20th Century. However, their manufacturing had detrimental health effects on factory workers (who were almost always young women).
- Disguises: Scooby and Shaggy as pizza chef and waiter.
- The title is an homage to the 1977 sci-fi movie, Close Encounters of The Third Kind.
- Shaggy refers to Luke Skywalker, the main character in the original Star Wars trilogy of films. It's worth noting that Mark Hamill, who played Luke, is a distinguised voice actor in the Scooby-Doo franchise. His most notable roles were that of Corey Anders in The New Scooby-Doo Movies episode, Mystery in Persia (a few years before he was even cast as Luke), Steve in the film Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders, and Crybaby Clown in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- When the gang are trying to enter Mr. Moss's office to use the phone (after Tessie's "disappearance"), the door appears to have a window and curtains when viewed from the outside. However, when Scrappy lets Fred, Daphne and Velma in the door appears to be made of solid wood with no visible windows.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- None known.
