  • Quotes

    • (After being informed a comet may destroy the planet, Danger Duck sarcastically freaks out)
      Ace: (Referring to Danger Duck) Somethin's screwy here, besides him.

    • Tech: (while using hia Magnetic Shielding to ward off meteor shards) Rev, fetch my Neutron Cannon!
      Rev: (comes back with three different blasters) You didn't say you wanted the Defracting Neutron Cannon, the Beam-Starter Neutron Cannon, or the one that goes "Dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah-dah!"

    • (Nearing the show's end)
      Optimatus: The first time, I misjudged the meteor's fate. The second time, it was demolished by these so-called Acme Heroes. But the third time....the third time, will be the charm.

    • Ace: Uhh, Tech, why did it sound like the engines just stopped?
      Tech: Uhh, that would be because the engines just stopped.
      Ace: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    • Duck: (after saving the Mayor) Ma'am, your life has been saved by Danger Duck!
      Mayor: (branch breaks) Tha-a-a-anks! (lands on the ground)
      Duck: ...Kinda.

    • Rev: (thinking) I'm faster now, and I can't mess this up. (speaking) You don't have to dock my pay, this time, Cookie.
      Ace: Uh, Rev? Who's Cookie?
      Rev: Oh! I mean Ace!

  • Notes

    • This is the first appearance of Optimatus, but his name is not revealed until "Acmegedon (1)".

    • Tech E.'s Near Demise: Getting caught in an explosion during a demonstration of one of his inventions. (pre-transformation)

    • Before the meteor struck the City-Planet of Acmetropolis, The Loonatics had these jobs:

      Ace - Stunt Bunny who wouldn't listen to Director's Orders
      Duck - Poolboy who had to clean up the pool
      Lexi - Gymnast who was refused a Cheerleading position, because she was better than the top one
      Tech - A scientist of Acme Tech, who didn't like others rushing his genius.
      Slam - A wrestler
      Rev - A delivery boy who couldn't get to his destination on time, even though he tried with rocket shoes.

      Plus, they actually resembled their ancestors before the meteor struck.

  • Allusions

    • The Loonatics' origin story is similar to that of DC Comics' Zoo Crew. Both teams consisted of six ordinary animals who gained their superpowers from a meteor, and both had a rabbit for a leader, and a duck on the team.

    • The Loonatics are animals who didn't get any respect from the humans they worked with at their old jobs. This is similar to the movie, Cats Don't Dance, where the animal actors also got the short end of the stick. Getting small parts and hardly any lines.
