- This is the series finale of the original Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo series.
- The title is from the O Henry story The Ransom of Red Chief, in which two kidnappers capture a boy who is so much trouble that they end up paying to give him back to his family.
- The Statue of Liberty is only seen in the establishing shot of the opening of the episode, they don't actually go there.
- While Velma is never seen actually speaking, Marla Frumkin's voice can be heard saying "Have a nice visit" when Shaggy, Scooby and Scrappy are being dropped off in the beginning of the episode.
- After the episode aired, Fred, Daphne and Velma were removed from the franchise until Daphne's return three years later for The New Scooby and Scrappy Doo Show. Fred and Velma made guest appearances in The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries but they did not return as series regulars until A Pup Named Scooby-Doo.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- Scrappy's tail appears to grow in length when he's trying to reach for a coin in the sewer.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- Just how famous is Scooby-Doo? Carl and Tony wanted to hold him for a ransom worth a million dollars!
- Why were Carl and Tony calling Hollywood and asking for ransom? Shouldn't they have called Fred, Daphne and Velma?
