When Ron performs his "fire breath" trick, he accidentally burns the judges' hair, but after approximately thirty seconds, the judges are shown again, only with their hair back in full.
Interestingly, this is only the second and most recent time Kim has sung during an episode. This is in sharp contrast with Christy Carlson Romano's more frequent performances as Ren on the show Even Stevens.
The close captioning refers to Drakken as 'Draken'.
When Drakken says "Imagine it, Shego!" his collar is blue.
When Kim dials a number on the teleportation module, the gold thing disappears.
When Kim told Bonnie she was rehearsing, Kim was on the stage. But when Bonnie played the film, all of the sudden, Kim is in a seat next to Ron. And when Kim told Bonnie "That was a long time ago," Kim is once again standing.
When Kim is tying up Drakken, she's wearing two gloves when she's only supposed to be wearing one.
Near the end of Kim's talent show performance, as she sings "anytime, anywhere", you can see she has both gloves on. In the next shot, she's back to only one.
Kim's left glove makes another appearance -- this time for a single cel -- as she spins to face Drakken's shark in the "bottomless" chasm.
When Kim and Ron hop into the boat outside of Dementor's lair, Ron is wearing no shirt. After a shot of Rufus starting the motor, he's suddenly wearing a shirt under his lifejacket.
During Kim's song, Ron is shown still wearing his gi. But once it's announced that he wins, he is drawn out on stage in the outfit with the green pants, without much time to change in between.
When Ron accepts the trophy, his black and white sneakers are colored all gray, like his mission shoes.
During the talent show, Ron burns off the judges' hair with Bueno Nacho Diablo Sauce. The next time it shows them, it's back!
When Shego lights her hands up and gets ready to go and retrieve the adapter for the teleporter, her eyes briefly overlap her hair.
During the locker scene after the theme song, Ron's turtleneck is colored red when it shows him from the back.
The bottom of Ron's shirt is red in the very beginning of the air duct scene.
Also seen in the turtleneck goof shot: The bottom of Ron's shirt is red.
If Kim wanted Ron to stall for her until she could escape Drakken's trap, why didn't he and Rufus sing "Naked Mole Rap"? That song is nearly five minutes long, and it would have been another way to use a song from the sountrack album. That way, when they won, it would have been even more satisfying, at least to some viewers who like that song.
When Kim and Ron are in the hall right before they get messaged by Drakkon/Fake Wayd, they talk about the talent show being tomorrow. Then, Drakkon/Fake Wayd tells them to get the cable from Dementor, and says it's "quite urgent". And, when they're at Drakkon's Lair, they say the talent show's starting soon and Ron takes off. Time mess-up?
How does Bonnie have video of Kim's inability to hit the high notes but Ron, who has been her friend since PreK, doesn't know about it?
As kim steals the teleportation module, she throws her backpack into the water to become a raft. In the next shot, she is wearing her backpack while sitting on the raft.
Dr. Drakken: With this teleportation module, I shall be able to instantly transport myself into any high-security area I please! Think of the possibilites, Shego! Fort Knox! The Louvre
Shego: Or into the "10 Items or Less" line? With 11 items, huh?
Dr. Drakken: Exactly! Wait. Was that a serious suggestion or are you mocking me?
Shego: Yeah, I'd say about 30% serious, 70% mock.
Kim: (to Drakken) Which part of "she can do anything" do you not comprehend?
Dr. Drakken: (describing this episode's death device for Kim, displaying charts) First, you will be sealed inside a reinforced, titanium box. The box shall then be dropped into this bottomless chasm. Next, I will fill the chasm with water. Then, sharks and a man-eating squid will be released into the water, and finally, I will freeze over the top of the water with a 6-foot-thick sheet of ice. . .
Shego: Wait, wait, wait, wait... If the chasm is "bottomless," how can you fill it with water?
Dr. Drakken: It's very, very deep, all right?!
Ron: You can be Kimbo the clown!
Ron: Lets stick to the facts. Fact 1, you are signed up. Fact 2, you won't give Bonnie the satisfaction of backing out now.
Kim: Fact 3, I know 16 styles of Kung Fu!
Ron: You really need to take this unproductive anger you're feeling toward me and channel it into your act.
Bonnie: (pushing her way through the talent show line) Step aside, people. This is all just a formality. My older sibs have won the this contest the last four years straight. I am not about to break the Rockwaller family tradition.
Kim: Oh, please, Bonnie. I just ate.
Bonnie: Just trying to save my fellow students from utter humiliation.
Kim: And your talent is what? Singing. . . your own praises? Acting. . . obnoxious?
Ron: You're gonna risk our reputation in front of the entire school, and you can't even hit the high notes?
Kim: Fact one: It's my reputation on the line here. Fact two: You are the one who got me into this. And fact three: I can, and will, hit the high notes. I can do anything!
Kim: (referring to Drakken's plot) Beats humiliation at the talent show, I guess.
"Say the Word," written by Danny Jacob and Janis Liebhart.
Animation Production by: Starburst Animation Co., Ltd
Kim sings "Say the Word" (though not the version heard on the KP soundtrack) for the talent competition.
Despite what he may think, Dr. Dementor is not the first to create this device. The precursor device is the "Modemizer", created by Professor Norton Nimnul almost 20 years ago in the Rescue Rangers episode A Fly in the Ointment.
Drakken's plan mirrors Largo's trap in Thunderball
In Hidden Talent:
Dr. Drakken puts Kim in a box under water and seals off the top of the water with ice, sharks are then released into the water through trap doors. Also, Kim uses her class ring from Wade as a re-breather to swim to safety.
In James Bond 007 Thunderball:
James is fighting with a henchman when they both fall into a swimming pool. Largo, the villain activates a cover that slides over the water trapping them. he then opens a trap door to his shark tank which then lets the sharks into the pool who then eat the henchman.
007 escapes by using the rebreather disguised as a cigar case that "Q" gave to him earlier in the movie.
(he swims through the door the sharks came through, rather than breaking out of the top of the water though)
M. C. Honey:
Reference to the 80s rapper M. C. Hammer, who popularised the "baggy pants" look. He dropped out of the scene in the late 90s, along with a bankruptcy filing. He's currently an ordained minister and can be seen in the reality show The Surreal Life.
The costumes worn by Ron and Rufus while doing their mime act (walking against the wind) are replicas of the costume worn by famous mime Marcel Marceau (the wind routine his trademark routine).
During Kim's performance, she has on only one glove, much like the way Michael Jackson used to perform wearing one glove.
The Swan Tutu is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the ballet Swan Lake.
Saturday Night Live:
Drakken's visual presentation reflects a late-ninties SNL skit "Lease With An Option To Kill" wherein the villain (Christopher Walken) shows Bond the manner of his execution on several poster-board sheets of paper.
Bonnie's swan tutu mirrors Björk's much-lampooned fashion disaster at the 2001 Academy Awards.
Kim teleporting through the phone is a reference to The Matrix. In the movie, "operators" could get unplugged people out of the Matrix by establishing a phone connection and having the person who was escaping hold the phone up to his/her ear.
Kim and Ron lowering down on ropes over a pressure-sensitive floor is a nod to Mission: Impossible.
