This episode was not aired by CBC due to figure skating taking JPod's slot on March 21, 2008 so the week after they released episode 12 ("Steve Leaves"), not episode 11. The CBC did release it on their website.
When the podsters stop Steve from giving Sprite Quest to the Awesome Arts guy, he says "We probably would have gotten away with it, if it wasn't for these meddling kids." This is a variation of what the villain in almost all of the Scooby Doo cartoons says after he/she gets caught. The Awesome Arts guy also says "Have fun in the Mystery Machine," which is of course the van from the Scooby Doo cartoon.
