Cultural references

  • This episode is a homage to the 1984 film, The Terminator, with a robotic dog taking the place of a humanoid robotic skeleton, the T-800.
    • The Fright Hound survives the flames of an exploding car, similar to how T-800 survived the flames of an exploding fuel truck.
    • The police station scenes.
    • Its disguise is burnt off at the police station, showing its exoskeleton underneath. This actually happened later on in Terminator.
    • The climax takes place in a factory, they also both managed to bust down a factory door, just like the movie, and after the robot is believed to have been destroyed it makes one final attempt before being crushed to death at the very end.
    • Even the music is alluded to.
  • "Jason Wyatt" is also the name of the production manager of this series.
  • The room holding Professor Pericles is similar to the cell for Magneto in the first two X-Men movies.
  • The uncanny way Pericles disturbs those who visit him is similar to Hannibal Lector in The Silence of the Lambs.
  • When Officer Johnson calls up Sheriff Stone stating that all of the animal inmates have been rounded up (except for Professor Pericles), one of the inmates being wheeled in at the time resembled Yogi Bear.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • The Crystal Cove News has a photo of Shaggy, Scooby, and Velma has them depicted in a happier place than what has been depicted during season one. Not at one point in the season (or even season two) would this likely have happened.
  • After being wrecked by the Fright Hound, the roof of the Mystery Machine looks okay when the van drives to the factory.
  • The Fright Hound is credited as the "Demon Dog", which is actually a description given of it within the episode.
