Thunder's legs keep switching colors, for some reason.
In the scene where Beast Boy asks Starfire if he is still a "Clorbag", Starfire's armband disappears at one moment, and then reappears.
From how the brothers reacted to what Beast Boy said about how harmful pulling pranks can be, it seems that Thunder is more likely to find the truth about things than Lightning does.
Robin has never fought or met Slade, so how could he automatically know Slade was disguised as an old man when his external mask came off? Surely he wouldn't have given the Slade problem too much thought.
Once again, Raven was fighting a villain physically (the first time in "Final Exam," against Jinx) when she could have been using telekinesis to handily achieve victory.
If Slade was still wearing his mask underneath the disguise, how was he able to move the mouth of his disguise?
When the fire beams began forming the flame monster, Thunder and Lightning are standing in the middle of a few of the beams, but in the next scene, they are far away from the beams and with Slade standing behind him.
When everyone other than Robin were at the bottom of the hill trying to stop the flame creature, what was Raven trying to do while she was down there? Her aura was up, but nothing appeared to be happening with her powers.
Starfire's name she calls Beast Boy (after she becomes the butt of his prank intended for Cyborg) is clearly pronounced 'clorbag varblernelk', but the closed-captioning spells it 'clorbag varblernook' (judging from the closed-captioning on the 'Divide and Conquer' DVD).
When Starfire walks into the hallway during the teaser, her eyes are solid green with no iris or pupils, as they are in the comics. This is the only time they are rendered like this.
When Beast Boy confronted Thunder, holding his shirt, it changed colors.
Thunder: This destruction? Will we harm the innocents?
Slade: Would it matter if you did? You are unique, gifted, better, why should anything interfere your enjoyment?
Thunder: I am sorry for the trouble we have made.
Lightning: I am also sorry.
Thunder: You have taught us much, green one! Thank you!
Beast Boy: Don't thank me. Thank the person who taught me. (Introduces Starfire to the brothers)
Thunder: (About the Titans) They also have gifts. But they use them for good, while we waste ours to our dangerous fun.
Slade: Burn fire! Burn it all!
Thunder: (After Lightning beats him) Tell me, brother, are we still having FUN?!
Starfire: On my planet we have names for people who do such terrible things. You're a CLORBAG VARBLERNELK!!
Beast Boy: I'm a what-bag??
Cyborg: You heard the lady.
Raven: You are SUCH a clorbag.
Beast Boy: It was a joke! Back at the tower! And you could've been hurt! I'm such a clorbag!
Beast Boy: Well, either they were just here, or this is the ugliest modern art I've ever seen, heh.
Starfire: You are not funny, you are a clorbag varblernelk.
Robin: Beast Boy and Starfire can scan from the skies.
Beast Boy: Maybe Cyborg should come with me instead?
Robin: Cyborg... can't fly.
Cyborg: (Pinches Beast Boy's cheek) Have a nice flight, my little clorbag!
Beast Boy: Do I have to give you the face? You know you can't resist the face!
(Turns into a kitten with big eyes, and Star just walks away)
Beast Boy: She resisted the face!
Raven: But -
Beast Boy: Shhhh!!
Raven: I don't think -
Beast Boy: Shhhhh!
Cyborg: What are we all hiding for?
Beast Boy: Shhhhhhhh!!!!! (Realizes it's Cyborg) CYBORG!!! You can't be Cyborg!!!!
Cyborg: (Confused) I can't?
Starfire: Is this punishment? Have I done something wrong?
Raven: You haven't done anything wrong Star, he has.
(Nods at Beast Boy)
Beast Boy: Hehe. Remember to change that every 3000 miles. Hehe.
Raven: Please tell me this isn't another one of your ridiculous pranks.
Beast Boy: Okay, it's not a ridiculous prank... it's a BRILLIANT PRANK!
Lightning and Thunder are the first Honorary Titans to appear on the show, even though it's not mentioned.
Thunder and Lightning are twins.
Lightning's real name is Tavis Williams and Thunder's real name is Gan Williams.
This episode along with "Divide And Conquer", "Sisters", "The Final Exam", "The Sum Of His Parts" and "Nevermore" was released on DVD as Teen Titans: Divide And Conquer.
Beast Boy teaches a lesson in this episode. In this episode, he learns that there are consequences for making pranks to people. Beast Boy used that and taught Thunder and Lighting that even if things seem fun, they can end up hurting others.
Slade apparently has dabbled in magic.
This episode is loosely based on the comic book story from New Teen Titans #32 (first run).
Thunder and Lightnings' powers:
Thunder - Can create large electrical blasts with his hands and create thunderous explosions and sounds.
Lightning - Can cast lightning blasts with his hands, and even eyes. He can turn his lower body into a lightning bolt and fly.
Both can fly on clouds, create thunder storms when combining powers, and create rain.
Thunder and Lightning become full-fledged honorary Titans at the end of the episode; in "Calling All Titans," they are on Robin's compass and are fighting villains.
Villain Debut(s): Thunder & Lightning -- Even though they are introduced as villains, they turn to the hero side after all.
Opener: As revenge of a prank played on him by Cyborg, Beast Boy sets up a contraption that will throw a balloon full of motor oil and explode in Cyborg's face. But it backfires and hits Starfire instead.
Kids' WB! airdate: January 24, 2004.
Beast Boy episode.
Slade's old man disguise is based on his real appearance in the comics.
Villain(s): Thunder, Lightning, & Slade.
Quintin Flynn is probably better known for voicing another elemental character: The Human Torch from the Fantastic Four cartoon series.
In issue twenty-three of The New Teen Titans, Cain and Travis are half American-half Vietnamese. They came to the United States in search of their father, whose blood can cure the disease that they have. Neither can fully control their powers, during the times when they lose control, they suffer intense pain. They are also Siamese twins.
Thunder & Lightning: The Mythological Base
The two brothers have a mythological sustrait from the Far East mythology. Specifically, Thunder is inspired in the chinese taoist god of thunder, named Lei-kung (or Li-gong); a god depicted as a blue man-shaped owl (which means he's a little fat) with a hammer & drum. Also, the clothes of both Thunder and Lighting seem taken from the Japanese God (of thunder) Raijin, dressed for the war with a samurai-like armor. Ligthing seems to be inspired in the Japanese God named Raiden (of thunder and ligthing), portrayed as a red guy able to throw ligthings with his hands, and other minor deities.
Thunder: Monkey King
Thunder rides a white cloud, just like the mythological Monkey King, which is used in Dragonball Z, and was even used in the Samurai Jack episode that premiered the same night as this episode.
