    • It is revealed that Daphne goes crazy whenever she eats chocolate, even a small amount.

    • This episode reveals that talking dogs are a well-known category of animals, so that even foreigners like the Bjorklunds aren't surprised by Scooby-Doo.

  • Quotes

  • Notes

    • This is the first episode to have the "previously on..." recap spoken by Scooby. The recap itself is a spoof and doesn't actually show anything significant, only showing the extravagant meals Scooby and Shaggy have had.

  • Allusions

    • The Fog

      Vincent Van Ghoul's movie that it is shown at the cemetery is a reflection to the 1980 original movie of John Carpenter's The Fog, starring Adrienne Barbeau, Jamie Lee Curtis, John Houseman, Janet Leigh and Hal Holbrook.
