- The Harlem Globetrotters are the only celebrity guests from season one to appear in season two, making them the guest stars with the most appearances on The New Scooby-Doo Movies.
- Not only was this the Harlem Globetrotters' final guest shot on The New Scooby-Doo Movies, this was also the final animated appearance of Meadowlark, Gip, Pablo and Bobby Joe, primarily because their real-life counterparts' basketball careers were ending. Only Geese and Curly would return in animated form on Hanna-Barbera's The Super Globetrotters (NBC, 1979–80) and the subsequent TV special, The Harlem Globetrotters Meet Snow White (1980), with the addition of three new members: Twiggy Sanders, Nate Branch and Sweet Lou Dunbar.
- Bobby Joe Mason died on July 4, 2006 at age 70. Gip died on December 30, 2009 at age 77. Paul "Pablo" Robertson passed away in February 2015; Meadow George "Meadowlark" Lemon III expired several months later on December 27, at age 83.
- The Globetrotters' match against the Scorpions actually reflects the typical formula of their own 1970 series. They usually would fall behind against a tough team until the "chase" song cued and they would score a comeback.
- Shaggy and Scooby say their prayers before going to bed. This is one of the rare times any of the main cast are shown to have spiritual beliefs.
- The Globetrotters saying good night to each other is a reference to the Waltons saying good night in the TV series The Waltons.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- If one looks very closely at the Globetrotters bus when they are following the Mystery Machine to the Picnic Island Queen in the beginning, Granny, their driver, and Dribbles, their dog mascot, both absent, are both in the bus.
Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- The scheme cooked up by the villains in this episode seemed pretty elaborate; they were never arrested by the authorities which is odd because they did, after all, kidnap the Globetrotters, and Mystery Inc..
- The Globetrotters were barefoot when they tried to go to bed prior to falling into the trapdoor, but in their next scene in the library, they’re wearing their sneakers.
