"Reflections in a Ghoulish Eye"
  • During the scene where Flim-Flam and Scrappy pretend to be detectives arresting the gang, Scrappy introduces himself as "Elliot Messy," a nod to Elliot Ness, though the character was a Treasury agent, not a detective.
    • Before leaving the room, Flim-Flam does a disclaimer:
  • When Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby are sucked into the demon mirror, they are shown in a room with several staircases going in multiple directions including upside down, it alludes to M.C. Escherís well-known piece of art titled "Relativity."

"The Ghouliest Show on Earth"
  • Episode title is based on The Greatest Show On Earth. The episode title also alludes to the well-known phrase "The Greatest Show on Earth", which was the slogan of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus that started in 1870.
  • Professor Phantasm bears more than a few similarities to sinister master G. W. Dark of the Cooger and Dark Circus.

"Scoobra Kadoobra"

"A Spooky Little Ghoul Like You"
  • Episode title is based on the song "Spooky Little Girl Like You" by The Zombies.
  • Scooby singing "Hawaii lies over the ocean, Hawaii lies over the sea," is a takeoff of traditional Scottish folk song "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean."
  • Daphne refers to pilot Charles Lindbergh, famous for making the first non-stop trip across the Atlantic Ocean, by saying, "Look again, Lindbergh, thatís not sand, itís snow!"
  • Scooby and Ghoulie sing "To all the Ghouls Iíve Loved Before," which is a ripoff of "To All the Girls Iíve Loved Before" by Willie Nelson.
  • Replace "B" with "P" and "bad luck" with "pool" in Flim-Flamís "'Trouble with a capital 'T' and that rhymes with 'B' and that stands for 'bad luck'" line and you have a quote from The Music Man.
  • The mock game-show "Letís Make íEm Squeal" parodies Lets Make A Deal with Weerd assuming the name "Haunty Maul", spoofing Monty Hall, the host of the aforementioned game show.

"Horror-Scope Scoob"

"Itís a Wonderful Scoob"

"Scooby in Kwackyland"
  • "Kwackyland" is based on the whimsical world of living objects, Wackyland, consisting largely of surreal, Dali-like imagery and free-floating objects that obeyed no laws of standard physics in Porky Pig episodes "Porky in Wacky Land" and "Dough for the Do-Do", as well as being a major part in Tiny Toon Adventures, where Gogo Dodo is from there.
    • "Kwackyland" could also be a parody of Disneyland.
  • Platypus Duckís theme tune is a close match to The Great Grape Ape Showís opening song.

"When You Witch upon a Star"

"Thatís Monstertainment"
  • After the gang, plus Vincent Van Ghoul, are sucked into fictional movie ĎThe Son of the Bride of the Ghost of Frankenstein,í the movie cuts to a logo of Scooby imitating the MGM lion logo and the words "Ranna Rarrera Extravaganza."
  • Other than Vincent Van Ghoul and Flim-Flam, in "Thatís Monstertainment" Shaggy, Scooby, Daphne and Scrappy are given recurring roles in the Frankenstein movie mythos: Scooby Doo as mad scientist Dr. Frankenstein, or in this case, Dr. Frankenscoob; Scrappy is "Egad", which is a parody of "Igor"; the misshapen servant and lab assistant to Dr. Frankenstein; Daphne is both Dr. Frankensteinís fiancťe, Elizabeth, with her dialogueís indication and the Bride of Frankenstein with her hair and appearance; and Shaggyís role of Constable Von Shaggobon is a reference to the recurring role of the concerned lawman who goes to investigate what the doctor is up to when the townspeople start to get worried about his unnatural work.
  • An approximation of the Popeye theme is played when Scooby consumes the Scooby Snacks.
  • Episode title is based on pun "now thatís entertainment!"
