    Notes (12)

    • When Matt first attempted the beer bottle trick, he actually ended up cutting his hand and needed to get stitches. In all subsequent attempts at the trick, Matt and Jeff decided to wear work gloves.

    • Originally, Chad was supposed to juggle knives and Tasers, too, but due to time constraints on the shoot day, those two stunts were dropped. In a few shots, though, you can see the items prepped and ready under the table with the chainsaws on it.

    • The "ramp up" shot at the beginning of the blender segment was actually taped many days later during the "Breakdancing" shoot. That is why breakdancers can by seen in the background.

    • While shooting the "Dry Ice Bomb" segment, nobody was expecting the glass in the water tank to shatter. That's why the crew seemed so amazed after the explosion, and why everyone rushed to secure the very expensive camera equipment.

    • The "Don't try this at home!" piece at the end of the episode was shot later in the season during the "Mountain Bikes" segment and shows most of the Time Warp production crew.

    • The girls seen at the end of the Bubbles segment were recruited outside the Time Warp Studio by a production assistant moments before that scene was shot. The director thought adding them to the shot would make it more beautiful.

    • Another scene was shot for the "Fuel Girls" segment which used a dummy to show what would happen if a fire-breather blew the flames down instead of up. It was eventually cut from the segment.

    • Two additional scenes were shot for the "Jackhammer" segment but were eventually cut from this episode - hammering and sledge hammering.

    • This is the first time Robin, the show's Art Department Lead, is explicitly named and shown on camera, despite her previous appearances during the yo yo and bullet-resistant armor segments.
