Differences from the book
- The episode is simply titled Shocker on Shock Street, instead of A Shocker on Shock Street.
- The giant praying mantises never appear and neither does the cemetery.
- The ending is slightly different than in the book. In the book, Erin and Marty are revealed to be robots and Erin's "father", the robots expert takes the two kids back to the lab so he can fix them. On the TV version, it follows the book ending, but adds in an extra scene where the Erin and Marty robots power up and attack Mr. Wright, presumably killing him (since they believe that robots have as much right to live as people do).
- In the book, Shock Street is more of a movie franchise. In the television episode, Shocker films is a studio known for monster films with a unified setting, similar to Troma Films, known for setting a majority of its films in the fictitious city of Tromaville.
- Several of the masks in the studio are from previous and future television episodes including:
- A mask of one of The Creeps from Calling All Creeps!
- The Piranha Person was later recycled for a fish mutant in Deep Trouble
- Two scarecrows from The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight.
- Some of the masks from The Haunted Mask and The Haunted Mask II.
- One of the snake monsters from The Girl Who Cried Monster.
- Prince Khor-Ru from Return of the Mummy.
- In the United Kingdom, the scene where Marty is electrocuted is edited.
- Ben Cook (Marty) played Jerry in Season 1's Piano Lessons Can Be Murder and Josh in Season 2's Welcome to Dead House
- The theme music for season 3 is now different and remixed, and now at the end, the voice says Ultimate Goosebumps. Season 3 was renamed Ultimate Goosebumps because of this. The original post-S1 pre-Ultimate Goosebumps opening was on the DVD, however.
- The skull of the tram car says the Goosebumps TV Show tagline.
- The werewolf animatronic is similar to the werewolf models from both The Werewolf of Fever Swamp and Werewolf Skin.
Shocker on Shock Street has been release on DVD over three times. The 2006 DVD release includes the episode, Click as a bonus.
