    • QUOTES (2)

      • (After swimming underwater in an effort to escape Scheemo's brig)
        Debbie: I think we made it!
        Mark: The great escape artists did it again!
        Tinker: Old Scheemo's not so smart.
        Speedy: (sputters and gulps when he notices something above them) Uh-oh!
        (The gang is caught in a net hoisted by a crane)
        Mark: Say hello to some dumb fish!

      • (After Speed Buggy runs out of gas in the middle of the ocean)

        Cormack: Heh, heh, heh! Need a lift?

    • NOTES (2)

      • Strangely, this last episode of the series bears similarities to Josie and the Pussycats first episode "The Nemo's a No No Affair". Both feature a villain looking to conquer the seas with specialized submarines.

      • This is the final episode of the series.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
        This episode borrows elements from the above-titled sci-fi novel from French author Jules Verne which was first published in 1870. Its villain, Captain Nemo, sought to conquer the world with his sophisticated submarine, the Nautilus.
