- Author's Saving Throw:
- Its a quick gag, but Donald being locked in the pantry does explain his absence from the last few episodes. Why no ones helped him out, however...because Word of God has it that Donald was pushing against a pull-open door.
- Until now, Webby called Scrooge "Mr. McDuck". At the end of this episode he asks her to call him Uncle Scrooge, just like in the original show.
- In a similar vein, Scrooge and Webby have more direct interactions here than in other episodes.
- Unexpected Character:
- The leader of S.H.U.S.H. is no one else but Ludwig von Drake.
- The show's crew let slip early about the likes of Darkwing Duck and Don Karnage, but managed to keep the incorporation of the Gummi Bears a complete secret.
- Viewer Species Confusion: Before her name was revealed, some viewers thought Black Heron was a crow. Understandable, as herons are Seldom-Seen Species in fiction.
