- Scooby and Shaggy's names were revealed to be nicknames of Scoobert and Norville in the A Pup Named Scooby-Doo episodes The Sludge Monster from the Earth's Core and Curse of the Collar, respectively.
In the early stages of working on the title card, Tracy Mark Lee did original line art and rough sketches of Mudsy and Boo, before being told to use Abraham Lincoln, to keep the former a surprise for older Hanna-Barbera fans.
- The episode's title is an allusion to Abraham Lincoln's House Divided speech in 1858.
- Velma announces the celebrity guest in the title card.
- Just like the Speed Bugs being given a group name in the The New Scooby-Doo Movies, the Funky Phantom Crew are also given a group name in this series.
- Mystery Inc. had already met the Funky Phantom Crew in DC Comics' Scooby-Doo story Big House Brouhaha.
- Tom Kenny previously voiced another incarnation of Jonathan Wellington Muddlemore in the Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated episode Mystery Solvers Club State Finals.
- Perhaps to mock the fact that Hanna-Barbera created the Funky Phantom as "clones" of Mystery Inc., they are extremely arrogant thinking that they are the superior mystery solvers.
- Muddlemore is credited as Mudsy.
- Scooby Snacks bribe: 0.
- "Zoinks" count: 1.
- "Jeepers" count: 0.
- "Jinkies" count: 1.
- "Hold the phone" count: 2.
- The title is an allusion to the real-world Abraham Lincoln's House Divided Speech on June 16, 1858.
- Muddlemore refers to the Burr-Hamilton duel.
- Having fictional Abraham Lincoln promoted as the celebrity guest, hides the real guest star attraction, that this is a crossover with the cast of The Funky Phantom.
- The cast of Hanna-Barbera's Speed Buggy also makes cameos in this episode.
- When Fred suggests that they "head 'em off at the pass", Daphne replies with "I hate that cliché!" Slim Pickens and Harvey Korman had the same exchange in the 1974 Mel Brooks film Blazing Saddles.
- While trying to work out how Muddlemore is faked, Velma mentions Pepper's Ghost Effect. This refers to a magic trick that dates from the 18th century, using lights and mirrors to create a ghost effect, or to transform one person into another.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- None known.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- Even though this is supposed to be a continuation of The New Scooby-Doo Movies, Shaggy & Scooby are in hysterics at the idea of Speed Buggy being a talking car, despite having had an entire case together in the aforementioned series episode The Weird Winds of Winona.
- How the statues became ghosts is unknown.

- Mark, Tracy Lee (July 19, 2019). "About that Abe Lincoln episode of #scoobydooandguesswho, here is the original line art and concept roughs I did before being told that the title card should feature honest Abe as the guest star. I think the idea was for the Funky Phantom gang to be a surprise for classic HB fans.". Instagram. Retrieved December 25, 2020.
