This episode originally aired on May 2, 2011 on Canada's Teletoon.
Scrappy and Flim-Flam's fates are references to the negative reception they received when they were main characters in the 1980's, being blamed for 's decline, how they were percived by Scooby-Doo Cartoon Network (which also reflected their unpopularity in their bumpers), Scrappy's evil deeds in the 2002 film, and the fact that they never returned in any more productions because of it.
This is also the first time Flim-Flam has been used since his appearances in the 1980's.
Freddy not knowing who Flim-Flam is, is a reference to his standard continuity counterpart being absent from . Given that The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo Velma was absent from the aforementioned series, too, her SDMI counterpart would likely not know who he is either, although that is not outright confirmed.
Velma runs a blog about the gang. She finds out that Amy and her mother both follow it. It turns out Velma regularly locks her door, but Angie has a key to it, and regularly invades her privacy.
This is the second time the gang meet Ed Machine again face-to-face, after .
Where Walks Aphrodite There are six Skipper Sheltons: the clammer who owns the Clam Cabin, a sardiner, a shrimper, a manta-rayer, a kelper, and a sea-dragoner (whom they don't talk about). This parallels Daphne and her sisters, suggesting she has five (with the odd one being the astronaut sister).
In this episode, skeptical Velma believed a person in a costume to be a real supernatural creature. Amy appealed to her loneliness and her desire to have a secret friend.
This is the first time that Angel Dynamite has been hinted to be Cassidy Williams; Velma outright declares it.
Ernesto's statement, "We have to destroy the environment in order to save it" is an echo of the famous Vietnam-era quote, "We had to destroy the village in order to save it."
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
The statue represents Flim-Flam with his hands in his sweater pockets, but from behind, his hands are on his waist.
Inconstitencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
Despite having already met Ed face-to-face once before, the gang show no apparent recognition of him as the associate of Mr. E who spoke to them after the Aphrodite case. The only reasonable explaination is they met him at night and would not have been able to have a good look at him.
