    • Shaggy (after seeing the Mystery Machine normal): But... but it was alive! Velma: What a joker. Daphne: Very funny, Shaggy!

    • Fred: It's nice to have good ol' Mystery Machine back on our side. Murph: $8,000 and that's my final offer. Mystery Inc.: It's not for sale, Murph! Scooby: No way!

    • Susan Dimwittie: Well, I never meant for the van to get so out of control. But, you kids wouldn't stop meddling. Doesn't matter now, the Mystery Kids are still gonna be bigger than ever.

    Notes (7)

    • First episode of the show where the culprit wasn't arrested after being caught.

    • Running gag: Murphie tries to ask the gang to sell thier Mystery Machine, but they refuse to sell it to him.

    • Culprit: Susan Dimwittie. Reason: To bring back her kids' band, the Mystery Kids.

    • The song performed by The Mystery Kids is really "2 Cut 2-4 Get" written by Rich Dickerson and Gigi Meroni for the series.

    • Susan Dimwittie (voice by Kath Soucie) bears a resemblance to Shirley Jones' character of "The Partridge Family".

    Trivia (2)

    • The song during the chase scene is "I'd Do Anything" by Simple Plan. Simple Plan is the same band who performs the theme song (and later appeared in a second season episode).

    • Daphne has two stripes!-When the gang spots Andy, and Mandy, Fred says to follow them, but if you look at Daphne sitting on the backseat of the twobikes , her skirt has two stipes on the bottom like the original cartoon!

    Allusions (2)

    • Fred said he wanted to paint the Mystery Mashine red. The is a reference to "The 13 Ghost of Scooby-Doo", when it was red.

    • The Mystery Machine: Chi chi chi kill kill kill kill. Early on in the episode, the sound effect is a parody of the of Jason/Friday the 13th sound effect. But later in the episode, it was the piano sound.
