  • Shaggy announces the celebrity guest in the title card.


Cultural references

  • There are several Hanna-Barbera references:
    • As Kenan Thompson walks down the hall, posters of The Banana Splits and The Herculoids can be seen.
    • As Pazzo the Ghost Clown finds two mannequins, Fred and Daphne sneak away as Fred Flintstone and Jeannie, from the The Flintstones and Jeannie, respectively. Daphne's disguise is more obvious than Fred's, who is dressed rather generically in comparison.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • In a few scenes, the story plays with Shaggy's green T-shirt disappearing in front of a green screen. However, when Shaggy, Scooby and Kenan Thompson hide in front of the weather green screen, first we can see his T-shirt, as we could if we were looking at him directly. But when they emerge his T-shirt is missing, as if we are looking at them via a TV screen.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • It's not explained how the gang know Kenan before the start of the episode.
  • The anchorman at the beginning of the episode is credited as "Sports guy", despite the fact he doesn't say anything sports-related.
  • When Dobbs is introduced, he is seen wearing glasses, but after his unmasking, the glasses disappear.
  • Why would Dobbs dress as a ghost clown when Pazzo is still alive?
  • How could Pazzo haunt the station immediately after Meghan and AJ Dobbs left for a meeting with the station's bankers?
  • The video tapes Velma checks look like ordinary VHS tapes, which do not have the video quality required of a TV station. Stations typically stored their programs on special format reel to reel video tapes before digital storage took over.
  • How could Simone be in the same middle school drama club as Kenan Thompson, who was born in 1978 and also the same high school year as Christian Slater who was born in 1969?

Kenan Thompson: Excuse me, miss, is this hiding spot taken?
Velma: Kenan, it's me, Velma.
Kenan Thompson: Oh, sorry. I didn't recognize you without your glasses.

A.J. Dobbs: And I would've gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you meddling... (pie in the face)
