- The episode seems to be heavily based on The Secret of Terror Castle.
- The gang drive by the homes of actors, Gregory Grant and Steve McKing, which are spoofs of Hollywood stars, Gregory Peck, Cary Grant, and Steve McQueen.
- Lorne Chumley is a parody of silent film star, Lon Chaney.
- In addition to Lorne Chumley being a parody of silent horror actor, Lon Chaney, there are references to other monsters other actors played. For example, the Wolfman was played by Lon Chaney's son, Lon Chaney, Jr..
- The Wolfman and Frankenstein's Monster in this episode bear a resemblance to the ones from the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode, A Gaggle of Galloping Ghosts. A portrait of Swampy Pete from a previous episode, The Ghostly Creep from the Deep, is also seen in this episode.
- Don Adams passed away on September 25, 2005.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- On the line of horror character portraits, the first one was a greenish monster and the second one was a purple guy with red hair, but when the two characters had Shaggy and Scooby, they switched places.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- Even if both Otto and Lorne Chumney were behind the hauntings, it would've been nearly impossible for them to play all of the monsters seen in the episode.
- Shaggy and Scooby state that they can't swim, but this doesn't make sense since they did swim pretty well in some previous episodes (like The Spooky Fog of Juneberry and The Caped Crusader Caper) and even in some episodes of the previous series (like Go Away Ghost Ship and A Tiki Scare is No Fair).
