    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Batman and Robin are encased in an energy cube with a fake Black Manta. But when they're brought to Luthor by the gorillas, the Black Manta dummy is missing.

      • Six of the Legion of Doom members team up to attack Gorilla City after they leave the Hall of Doom in two ATVs. Grodd, Black Manta, and Sinestro are in one and Brainiac, Giganta, and Toyman are in the other. When Sinestro uses his power ring to pass through the city's shield, he's in the ATV with Giganta and Brainiac, with Toyman seen in the other. They then switch back to the original ATV setup when Sinestro uses his power ring to protect the team from the guards' stun rays.

      • At the beginning of the final scene, Superman's chest insignia is briefly inverted. That is, a yellow "S" in a red shield before it switches to the standard red "S" in the yellow shield.

      • Just after the enlarged Apache Chief captures Toyman and a couple of gorillas, Black Manta uses a ray beam that neutralizes his powers and encases him in an energy cube. But this sequence is badly done as it looks like Toyman and the gorillas are shrinking with Apache Chief, and then are normal-sized and inside the cube with him.

      • When the Legion of Doom make their escape, Samurai and Green Lantern, who didn't appear in this episode, are seen in place of Superman and Black Vulcan, who were among the SuperFriends who did.
