- Credit errors
- It's unclear which characters and actors are supposed to be credited for their appearance or not because Kimberly Brooks is credited for the role of Dusk instead of Jane Wiedlin, Brooks voices Luna.
- Grey DeLisle is mistakenly credited for voicing "Wormian #1" which was from The Fast and the Wormious.

|Wrenchfield||He hates that the music of the Hex Girls has replaced his beloved chamber music.|
|Dusk||She got into a fight with the other girls and threatened to quit the band.|

- The title of the episode may be a pun on Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (starring Mark Hamill).
- Mystery Inc. previously met the Hex Girls in the DTVs, Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost and Scooby-Doo! And The Legend Of The Vampire, respectively. They also met J.J. Hakimoto in the previous season's episode, 3-D Struction.
- Owen DeCassle bears a striking resemblance to Vincent Price, it's too much of a coincidence not to be based on him.
- J.J. makes references to the taglines of both Jaws 2 and Alien; he previously referred to the former's tagline in 3-D Struction.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- None known.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- Velma says that the argument between the Hex Girls is because Dusk is rumoured to be leaving, but the front cover to Popular Magazine implies that it is Thorn who's walking out by separating her from Luna and Dusk.
