- Mr. Teller mentions the "king of Siam". Siam is the old European name given to Thailand in Southeast Asia.
- Tim Conway states that he became a coach because he wanted the role of Coach Knute Rockne in a biopic. Knute Kenneth Rockne (1888–1931) was an American football player and coach, both at the University of Notre Dame. He is regarded as one of the greatest coaches in college football history.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- None known.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- In this episode, it is stated that Velma went to high school, without the rest of the gang, but in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! it's assumed they all go to the same one.
- The fact that Velma spent a portion of her high school years in a school different from the rest of the gang (though ending up graduating with them at Coolsville High) is confirmed in the DC Comics stories, Friday Night Frights and Cheers For Fears. That's of course, if the comics are anything close to canon with the animated series.
- The high school looks more like a university; it could also be a type of boarding school.
- It is revealed that Mr. Finster, and Mr. Griffith's twin are the ghosts but while both ghosts are chasing the gang Mr. Finster is seen (albeit in shadow) in the booth above the stadium observing the action.
Due to expensive royalties owed to Tim Conway in lending his likeness and voice to a fictionalised version of himself, Warner Home Video is unable to release this episode onto DVD. This is the last episode to be prevented from being released in The Best of The New Scooby-Doo Movies, the very reason it is a "best of" collection.
