    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Goof: When Dr. Corwin is changed into a dinosoid, his glasses vanish. They reappear in the same manner when he is restored. The same happens with Professor Stein when he's changed back even though Ronald found his glasses earlier.

      • In the scene where Robin examines the wrecked Batjet, the logo on his costume is inverted. Instead of the usual gold "R" in the black circle, it's a black "R" inside a gold circle.

      • Wonder Woman's tiara also seems to be inverted when she's changed into a Dinosoid. Until she returns to normal, the tiara is red with a gold star instead of gold with a red star.

      • As Robin and Ronald escape from the scientist's complex, one of the spoken lines is "We've got to get over the wall!" Though it looks like Robin is saying that particular line, the voice heard is Ronald's.

    • NOTES (4)

      • Examples of Dr. Corwin's animal-to-dinosaur-counterpart-transformation through the Genectic Manipulator machine is when he transformed an Indian Rhinoceros into a Styracosaurus and any birds into one of the flying dinosaurs like a vulture into a Pteranodon. It's unknown what animals the Stegosaurus and Tyrannosaurus Rex changed from.

      • Fans of the Superfriends will find the exchange between Batman and Professor Stein on the Batplane interesting and maybe even confusing...not by the words but by the voices. As stated in the show's introduction, all the pervious incarnations of the Superfriends had Olan Soule voice Batman. Starting with this version, Adan West took over for Batman, and Olan Soule moved over to voice Professor Stein. The result is the familiar cartoon Batman voice of Soule speaking as another character to Batman, who of course has the familiar voice of Adam West's Batman from the live action TV show from the 1960s!

      • This is the final appearance of original super-hero Apache Chief, who first appeared in 1977's The All-New Superfriends Hour.

      • Ronald and the Professor do not combine to become Firestorm in this episode.
