  • The episode title is a play on the titles "uncle and aunt" so it sounds like "Uncle Scooby and Aunt Arctica".
  • "Uncle Scooby" was also an affectionate nickname, his nephew, Scrappy-Doo, called him.
  • The zoo would likely be in Coolsville, but that isn't explicitly established.
  • The Mystery Machine does not appear.
  • In closed captioning, Zelig is called "Zella".


Cultural references

  • Armand Zola is a reference to the Marvel comic book villain Arnim Zola, who transfers his mind between robotic bodies to avoid death.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

  • In one scene the fur on Daphne's hood is white instead of purple.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

Fred: Antarctica? You mean the one in the South Pole?

Corvina Cloyd: Ah, we're on automatic pilot. This baby practically flies itself. Want a turn behind the wheel?
Fred: Sure. I pride myself on my driving skills.
Velma: (Aside to Daphne) Refasten your seatbelt.

Dr Zola: You mean you kids would dare to meddle with the future of mankind.
Velma: Well, if the shoe fits.
