Originally, the villain Ding Dong Daddy was suppose to be the one who stole Cyborg's car before Gizmo. But for unknown reasons, he was replaced by two delinquents named Sammy and Cash to steal Cyborg's car.
When Raven appears in the electonic store, her outfit looks sky blue till she leaves then it changes.
Raven could have used her magic to stop the T-Car that Gizmo was driving.
When Cyborg tries to "buff out" the scratch on the side of the T-Car after Gizmo gets it scratched, the passenger-side mirror broke off, but later reappears on the T-Car. Also, the scratch is gone -- even before Overload rejuvinated the car.
Gizmo ejects from the car in a vertical ejection seat without making any sort of hole in the roof.
Raven states that she moves objects by putting her soul into them. In "Switched," when she changed bodies with Starfire, her powers stayed with her body.
If the T-Car is connected to Cyborg's system, shouldn't he be able to remotely control it?
When they finally crash with the Prison Transport van, Overload releases, but the Transport in fact is going to the city (remember that Raven and Cyborg come in the other way after they leave the city chasing Gizmo). The point is, if the other Titans just delivered Overload to the authorities at the city, why is he being transported back to it? If you are carrying a prisoner through a road, should be because the prison is not in the same place you catched him.
Overload: Only way to stop Overload is to destroy your precious car!
Cyborg: It is not my car anymore... (Blows up the T-Car)
Sammy & Cash: But then we totally escaped before the cops showed up!
(They are suddenly surrounded by Raven's forcefield)
Raven: Escape from THAT before the cops show up...
Cyborg: I'll take you to any place you want to go!
Beast Boy: The beach!
Robin: The movies!
Starfire: The swamp moons of Drentax IV.
(All the others faint)
Starfire: (Blushing) He said any place...
Beast Boy: (About the T-Car) Sweet!
Starfire: It sings!
(Raven's head appears in front)
Raven: Can we go now?
Cyborg: (With incredible joy) It is my great pleasure to present for the first time anywhere, the thing you've all been waiting for, my coolest, hottest, fastest creation...
Raven: (apathetically) Just get on with it...
Cyborg: I give you the future of Titans transportation, the one, the only: T-CAR!!!
Raven: (Looks at Cyborg, milkshakes around him) Fourteen milkshakes. Not a good sign.
Cyborg: What are you doing here?
Raven: Looking for your car. Soon as we turned in Overload to the police, we all split up to search the city.
Cyborg: Might as well stop looking. T-Car's probably halfway to Metropolis now... From the day I designed her, I knew she was gonna be special. And I work so hard. Every fuel injector, every spark plug. I made her perfect. I put my heart, my soul, and my circuits to this car. And now she's gone forever. Maybe you're right. Maybe it was just a car.
Raven: Maybe, maybe not. When I use my powers, I have to put a little soul of me. That's kinda what happened here. It wasn't just a car, it was your... "baby."
Cyborg: Yeah. Thanks, Rae.
Raven: And, right now, someone's eating curly french fries in your baby.
Cyborg: (Looks at Gizmo in his car) He'll get ketchup on the seats!
Cyborg: You lost my car... My car lost in a race?!
Thief: Oh, no, don't worry, man. The car won; the thing handles like a dream!
Cyborg: Really? How did she handle the corners, 'cause, you know, I've been working on the suspension... Don't try to distract me!
Cash: You got busted.
Gizmo: So did YOU, you brainless stinkbombs!
Starfire: (messes with the controls and hits the Windshield Wiper button) Look, they are dancing!
Cyborg: Drumroll, please. (Beast Boy turns into a lemur and starts banging his belly) Ladies and gentlemen, and whatever Beast Boy is...
Beast Boy: (Changes back) Hey, Cyborg, you want a drumroll or not?
Cyborg: (After the T-Car has been stolen) My wheel lock! My car alarm! MY BABY! Somebody stole my baby!
Cyborg: (To Beast Boy, who is leaning out of the window as a dog, and slobbering all over the place) YO! I know you're not drooling on my paint job!
Beast Boy: (Changes back to normal, but still has a long strand of slobber on his face) Heh... my bad..
Raven: (In the back of the T-car) Are we there yet?
Cyborg: (Annoyed) NO!
Cyborg: Pull over!
Gizmo: Make me, robo-wimp!
Sammy: Dude! That is phat!
Cash: Sweet ride... she yours?
Cyborg: (Proudly) Built her with my own two hands using the finest parts and cutting-edge techno - (Raven grabs him by the ear and drags him away)
(After Cyborg realizes his car has been stolen)
Starfire: I understand your pain, Cyborg. When I was small, my favorite Zarnik was eaten by a rampaging Gloorg. Believe me, after your Zarnik has been inside a Gloorg, you do not want it back.
Overload: (After the T-Car blows up) Overload... Overloaded...
Cyborg: Boo ya! Check out my baby's Proton Cannon! (Raven glares at him) Er... I mean... Oh, no!
(Cyborg is sobbing on the ground)
Cyborg: My car wasn't eaten, it was stolen!
Beast Boy: Hey, look on the bright side, at least it wasn't my fault.
Robin: Not helping.
Cyborg: (To Gizmo) Are you even old enough to drive?
Cyborg: Fuzzy dice? Aww, now that's just tacky.
Cyborg: (To Gizmo) Get your tiny butt 'outta my car!
Cyborg: I SAID PULL OVER!!!
Gizmo: Hey! Let me go, you fart-smelling hairball!
(Gizmo breaks wind in Cyborg's face)
Raven: Okay, making it REALLY hard to concentrate.
This is the only appearance that Sammy and Cash make throughout the series.
This episode along with "Switched", "Deep Six", "Masks", "Mad Mod" and "The Apprentice, Part 1 and 2" was released on DVD as Teen Titans: Switched.
You can see Raven and Cyborg beginning to bond in this episode.
When Cyborg says to Raven that Gizmo is halfway to Metropolis by now, Batman, in the movie Batman Forever, says the same line to Robin.
Villain Debut(s): Overload.
Look Hard: After Starfire says the swamp moons of Drenthax 4, the communicator goes off and when you see it in Robin's hand, it is square-ish, not a circle like it usually is.
In the series, the cities Gotham and Metropolis have now both been metioned. However, Metropolis and Gotham are actually both based on the same city: New York. Metropolis, based on the nicer side, and Gotham, based on the darker side. But this does not in any way mean that they were referring to the same city. In the comic books and the series, Gotham and Metropolis are two different cities.
Cash and Overload are voiced by the same person.
Opener: Cyborg finishes putting on the finishing touches on his newly-built T-Car. He then reveals it to the other Titans, and offers to drive when trouble arises.
Sammy's character is named after series producer, Sam Register.
You can see Gizmo's eye pupils in this episode. You see them when Cyborg is screaming at him to hit the nitro.
We learn something about the nature of Raven's power: she essentially possesses whatever she is manipulating. This doesn't jive well with "Switched."
The music played while Cyborg builds his car is a clip from the song titled "Rock The House," sung by the cartoon band, Gorillaz.
All of Cyborg's gifts (presents to other people or received) have return policies to all parties once, then returned to the original party (mostly). There's his car ("Car Trouble"), his power cell, Cinderblock's capturing ("Divide and Conquer"), and even his toy puppet in "Switched." In "Mad Mod," he gets put back in his chair, another "present" returned, given, then disappearing into nothing.
As with "Divide and Conquer" and "Final Exam," when aired in the UK, "Car Trouble" was aired in it's correct position, according to production number, as the eleventh episode, leaving "Apprentice" parts one and two to resume their positions as the season's true finale.
Gizmo returns alone in this episode.
Villain(s): Overload & Gizmo.
James Arnold Taylor (Cash/Overload) once again works with Tara Strong (Raven). They were teamed up together before when they worked on 'Final Fantasy X' as the characters Tidus (J.A. Taylor) and Rikku (T. Strong).
This is Raven's second time smiling. She smiled at Beast Boy in "Nevermore."
Kids' WB! airdate: December 6, 2003.
The electrical villain, Overload, never appeared in the comics. He was created for the TV series, just like Cinderblock and Mumbo.
When fighting Overload above the shop he was robbing was a sign that says Cook's Electronic. This is an allusion to Fry's Electronic.
Tail Light: After Images
The tail lights show an after image trail on a few shots, specifically when its first stolen. This is similar to the tail lights of the motorcycles on the movie Akira.
The music which can be heard when Cyborg repairs the T-Car in the beginning and in the end, is the same which can be heard in Justice League episode "Eclipsed (1)" after Flash confronts the talk show host, Glorious Godfrey.
T-Car: Cliff Chase
The race between the T-Car and Cyborg on the cliffs closely resembles (occasionally, shot for shot) the car chase at the beginning of the movie, The Castle of Cagliostro. Particular moments include when the convertible Cyborg is driving being attacked by the Proton Cannon, which mirrors shot for shot when Lupin and Jigen have grenades thrown at them, and when Cyborg's convertible drives straight up the cliff.
Cyborg: Fuzzy dice? Aww, now that's just tacky.
The pair of dice hanging from the rearview mirror was made popular in George Lucas' film, American Graffiti. It has since been copied in many shows, including this episode.
Cyborg: T-Car's probably halfway to Metropolis by now.
Metropolis happens to be the name of the city where Superman lives. Cyborg also mentioned Gotham City in "Final Exam," as did Terra in "Betrayal." As this city is the D.C. comics equivalent of a day time New York (Gotham being the night time equivalent), it would be well known throughout the D.C. comics universe.
When the T-Car has the flames painted on, it looks a lot like Wayne's car from the movie, Wayne's World.
