|Professor Pericles bred a genetically-modified cow-piranha-bee hybrid animal||To destroy Crystal Cove, which would leave the gang with no place to hide and therefore he would be able to get the Planispheric Disk.|
- Crystal Cove
- The gang found the old gun at the end of the previous episode.
- Scooby holds a grudge against the farmer who kept him locked up in his farm which he escaped in The Night the Clown Cried.
- Pericles doesn't explicitly say he killed either Ed Machine or Cassidy Williams, but he does strongly implies it; this is the first mention of Ed since he last appeared in All Fear The Freak.
- Sheriff Stone actually remembers Mayor Nettles's first name although his fixation on her role makes him call her "Janet Mayor Nettles".
- Mayor Nettles and Sheriff Stone kiss in this episode.
- Hot Dog Water left a backdoor into Destroido's computers when she stole the pieces of the Planispheric Disk from its vault which happened in Wrath of the Krampus.
- Professor Pericles announces the "previously on..." recap for this episode. This is the first time a guest character has done this instead of a member of the gang.
- A rift between Mr. E and Professor Pericles forms after the latter spent a huge amount Destroido Corp.'s funds and losing its best scientists just to create the Horrible Herd.
- Nova losing Scooby's grip and falling into the skull cattle's stampede is reminiscent of when Mufasa was thrown off a cliff by Scar and was mortally wounded from falling through the wildebeest's stampede in The Lion King.
- Brad and Judy have become completely obedient to Pericles and his highly devious plans to destroy Crystal Cove to get the Planispheric Disk, even endangering their own son, and their former dog who's badly wounded by falling out the mayor's helicopter.
- This is the first episode in which the deputy speaks.
- Pericles can form his wings into hands.
- Mayor Nettles served time in the Air Force.
- A villain's scheme involving a mutated herd of cattle also occurred in the Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get A Clue! episode, Scooby Dudes.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- The farmer says they have not had cattle in 25 years, but in The Night the Clown Cried there is a cow in the barn.
- The City Hall appears undamaged, although in the previous episode it was burned.
