  • Fred tries to shortcut Mystery Inc.'s traditional ghost-catching formula by trapping the villain before the mystery is solved. Unfortunately, it doesn't work.
  • Scooby is shown to be afraid of ice (or Pagophobia) because of an incident where the hotel ice maker lid slammed on his whole tail and freezing it.

Cultural references

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • Shaggy's neck is too fat when he's carrying Scooby.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Velma never mentioned a love for ice hockey before this episode. While this could be an inconsistency, it may easily be something that was never addressed on-screen.
  • Galina is probably extremely fast since the frozen fiend appears on the other side of the rink in the Zamboni.
