    • NOTES (1)

      • This episode was written as a replacement for "Dark Glass" by Christy Marx, which the producers deemed to dark and mature for Beast Wars' target audience. In it, Rattrap discovered a copy of the original Dinobot's personality (probably made by Dinobot in "Bad Spark") and tries to upload it into the new Dinobot. He is successful and while Dinobot's personalities struggle for control, the old one emerges for a short while. Ultimately, however, the new one wins, and Rattrap is forced to accept that the Dinobot he knew is gone. This episode would also have been the basis for Dinobot's actions in "Nemesis (2)".

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Rattrap: "So, how you doing there Charlie Tuna?"
        Charlie Tuna is the spokesfish for the Star-Kist Tuna Company. Introduced in 1961 and voiced by Herschel Bernardi, Charlie was always trying to get himself caught by fisherman working for Star-Kist, but was always refused in the end.
