    as notes below this is a spoof of Mission Impossible with an exploding record tape-also the theme of a faceless villian comes from Redrum of Dick Tracy! Likewise its Alexandria who does her best to save the gang from the villians-first using the laser to move a train; then a bridge then sunken debries in the villains part-although Valerie uses the laser to capture and move the villians into a truckmoreless

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • Goof: The sleeves of Valerie's outfit are colored purple on three different occasions; First, when the gang is viewing the mircofilm, second when she and the others are outside hearing the commotion from the symposium, and lastly during the chase scene when the gang are on the motorcycle just before they go into the large bale of hay.

    • Goof: How the heck is it that Alan has a slideshow of a plan that hasn't been carried out yet?

    • Goof: When Alexander delivers pies to the hotel kitchen with Valerie and Melody, his hands are briefly seen as dark-colored on the cart's steering wheel.

    • Goof: When three of the gang are tied up the windmill gears by Mastermind, a couple of closeups on Alexander have his shoes colored brown instead of yellow.

    • Goof: When Josie, Valerie, and Alan find the others at the windmill, Alan's shirt is briefly the same color pattern as Alexander's.

    • Goof: Just before the gang drop Mastermind and his assistant off at the police station, it looks like Alan is saying "And our mission is complete." However, the voice heard is Alexander's.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Voice Recording: This tape will self-destruct in one second. (It does, leaving the gang all disheveled)

      The self-destructing audiotape inside the shoe Melody gets giving the secret agent assignment is a parody of the exploding tapes in the Mission: Impossible TV series.
