  • Trivia

    • Goof: When the gang first encounter Jerick as he traps them, faraway shots of Mark on Speed Buggy show him wearing his racing helmet, but closeup shots have him without it.

    • Goof: After a giant Jerick grabs Debbie and Mark and holds them in his hand, the latter's hair is brown instead of black.

    • Goof: In the final scene, Debbie is seen in the rear seat where Mark was originally seated prior and there was no indication they switched. Then Speed Buggy, still affected by Tinker's changing ray, hiccups, causing his tires to grow. But the final shot uses the ending clip of the series pilot Speed Buggy Went That-A-Way, as it shows Speedy's tires at their normal diameter, as well as wearing a cowboy hat and Mark is driving instead of Tinker, who's seated in the rear as the car is bucking around like a horse.

  • Quotes

    • (The gang is trapped by a giant Jerick in a temple)
      Debbie: What now?
      Mark: Operation Shoestring. (He and Tinker tie Jerick's shoelaces together)
      Debbie: I just hope Operation Shoestring works.
      Mark: Don't my operations always work?
      Debbie: No comment.
      Tinker: Here, Speedy.
      Speedy: Vroom!
      Jerick: Oh, no you don't! (Trips and begins to fall)
      Debbie: TIMBER! (Jerick crashes) Now's our chance.
      Tinker: Hit it, Speedy!
      Speedy: (sputters) Roger Dodger, Tink! (sputters) Vroom-a-zoom-zoom!

  • Notes

    • Once Jerick uses the changing ray on himself, he's able to alter his size and shape by uttering the word "Metamorpho".
