  • This episode was aired in Latin America and Brazil on March 8, 2013.
  • Scooby announces the "previously on..." recap.
  • The Campus Burger had switched to veggie burgers in The Shrieking Madness, but have apparently gone back to meat.
  • This is the only episode to contain a carnivorous moment; a hallucination of the Gluten Demon is seen swallowing Francilee Jackson onscreen at the very beginning.

Cultural references

  • The Crystal Cove initials (CC) are marked as a logo on a water tower in the studio where Francilee's show was broadcast, in a similar manner to Warner Bros.'
  • When Scooby and Shaggy face off against the Gluten Demon, they all address each other like Sumo wrestlers.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • Marion's hair in the photo is brown, instead of blonde. Although, she could've dyed it either color.
  • When the over-sized Shaggy and Scooby first tackle the Gluten Demon, Scooby doesn't have any black spots on his body, which appear after the three of them smash out of the Bakery from the Black Lagoon.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Gluten Demon is credited as "Gluten Monster".

Professor Pericles: You are in charge of nothing, Ricky Owens. You have never been anything other than an idiotic human mascot. A shoulder for me to perch upon.

Francilee Jackson: And I would've done it, too, been a huge success again, if it weren't for all y'all bread-hatin' health fanatics!
