  • This is a Valentine's special, and the third and final special of the series. It has a special title card and does a romantic-themed end credits background.
  • It's revealed that Daphne and Velma are roommates in one house, while Fred, Shaggy, and Scooby are also roommates in another.
  • Daphne is revealed to dislike tap water and prefers bottled water when the gang was in prison.
  • This is the first time in the franchise that a celebrity guest star portraying themselves is the villain.
  • As the gang is getting their mugshots taken, the number "69" is visible, as a reference to the year 1969, which was the year that Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! premiered on television.
  • A "Daphanatic" from the direct-to-video film Scooby-Doo! Frankencreepy, somehow obtained Daphne's heart-shaped love letter and mugshot.
  • On HBO Max, this is listed as the last episode of the series.
  • This is the first time any member of the mystery team (Velma) questions the way the team splits up.
    • It should also be noted that Velma acts like she has never split up with Shaggy and Scooby before.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • None known.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Even though this takes place around Valentine's Day, which is set in February, it instead appears to be set in spring or summer (no snow on the ground, leaves intact on the trees, no visible winter clothes) rather than winter. This suggests that Coolsville may be located in a warmer part of the country.
  • The gang has two girls, namely Daphne and Velma, but Scooby has to play the role of girlfriend in Freddy's plan?
  • The episode does not give any explanation of how the evil clones boast superhuman powers since they were just stunts, and if they had such powers, why did they not use them to escape the trap where they fell?
  • In reality, Sarah Michelle Gellar regretted portraying Daphne.
  • Officer McBride is the second police officer, after Lieutenant Keiko Tanaka of Big Appetite in Little Tokyo, not to apologize to the gang for accusing them of being responsible for the crime that was committed.

Fred: Why don't you stay for breakfast, George? I'm cooking eggs and...socks?

Daphne: I don't wanna wear the same outfit every day.
Velma: Look, I've got a plan. Don't tell Fred I said that; he thinks he owns that phrase.

Daphne: Wait a minute. Let me get this straight. You're saying I was played by... An extra?!

Daphne: An extra. Ugh! Was Sarah Michelle Gellar too busy?

Shaggy: Love, man. What ya gotta do? (chuckling) It's like all this song say: "Yaddi-yaddi-yadda. Love will give ya headache. Yaddi-yaddi-yadda."
