During several parts in the episode, Raven's chakra goes from being black to solid red.
The lightness and darkness of Timmy's blanket changes from a regular blue to a lighter blue.
Raven fixed Timmy's blanket by stapling it together, but towards the end, both the rip in the blanket and the staples are missing.
Why didn't Raven just teleport everyone to the place while in her soul-self form? Nobody should have gottten sick this way.
During the episode, why didn't Raven use her telekinesis to ease the fall of the gondola?
Whenever Raven turns her head to where we can see the side of it, her chakra disappears.
The saliva on Raven's face disappears when she is trying to calm Timmy.
When Raven is telling the story about "The End" 1, 2, and 3, her hair is messed up. Then when she tucks the kids in, it's fine again.
When Raven says to Timmy on the train "Hey, how are you doing in there," the lines on her hair are gone.
When Raven says "Yes, I see your blanky, it's pretty," Timmy's "blanky" goes from being blue to purple.
Bobby can't fit into a house, but he can fit into a gondola that is almost 1/3 the size of that house? The door to the gondola is not that much larger.
Melvin: Timmy's gotta go.
Raven: What do you mean he's gotta... (Sees Timmy squirming on the ground) Oh.
Raven: (To Melvin) There is no Bobby. It's you Melvin. Your powers, you move things with your mind. You're a big girl now, and you have to stop blaming things on your imaginary friend.
Melvin: (Tears in eyes) Bobby is real! You just can't see him 'cause you're a mean lady!
Teether: (To Mallah) BAD MONKEY!
Teether: Choo-choo gone.
Raven: Yes, choo-choo is gone.
Beast Boy: (Over communicator) Good, 'cause Robin needs you right away for another mission.
Raven: I can't. I've gotta watch the kids.
Melvin: Raven, it's okay. You can go. Your friends need you.
Raven: But what if the Brotherhood of Evil comes back? I can't just leave you kids all alone.
Melvin: We're not alone. Bobby's here. And we've got each other.
Raven: And you've got me. (Her hand, extends toward Melvin with her communicator in it, and pull back as all three youngsters eye the item)
Raven: Whenever you need me.
(The faces brighten at the offering, and in no time flat they have swarmed on the unlikely babysitter for a group hug)
Raven: Okay, that's enough.
Raven: (Sharply) Melvin! (She has also caught a pole)
Melvin: Wasn't me. (Pointing away) It was Bobby.
Raven: (To Melvin) What's wrong with that one?
Melvin: I don't know. (To Timmy) What's wrong, Timmy?
Timmy: (Gasping through sobs) Nobody's... holding... my hand! (Starts hysterically crying)
Raven: Melvin, hold Timmy's hand.
Melvin: I can't. (Nodding to her left) I've gotta hold Bobby's hand. Bobby's afraid of trains.
Raven: Just a two hour train ride, and it'll all be over....
(Long pause, where Raven and the kids stare at each other)
Raven: So you've all got powers? What can you do?
Melvin: Bobby can dance. Wanna see?
Raven: Uh. No.
Raven: Well, tell him I don't do baby-sitting.
Beast Boy: (Over the communicator, looking over his shoulder) Raven told me to tell you she doesn't babysit. (Looking back at Raven) Robin says you have to.
Beast Boy: (Over the communicator) Robin's communicator, may I -
Raven: Put Robin on.
Raven: (after dropping kids off, and hears crying) Teether just took Timmy's blanket. (hears more crying) Timmy just took it back.
Raven: Quiet, too quiet. (runs back and bangs on door) Timmy! Teether! Melvin!!
Raven: So, wanna know why the cookie went to the doctor? It felt crummy!
Beast Boy: Robin's communicator, how may I help you?
Raven: Beast Boy, put Robin on.
Beast Boy: He's fighting crime at the moment, perhaps I can be of assistance.
Melvin & Timmy: (Hugging, then realizing what they're doing) Ewwww!
Raven: Wow. Beast Boy's jokes are too immature even for babies.
Melvin: You don't babysit much, do you?
Raven: You can tell?
Melvin: Teether's got gas.
Raven: And what's wrong with Timmy Tantrum over there?
Melvin: His blanky's ripped.
Raven: I need backup. (On communicator) Raven calling anyone.
Beast Boy: (On communicator) Raven?
Raven: Anyone other than Beast Boy.
Raven: Just squish your imaginary friend down, and let's go back to our seats.
Melvin: Bobby is real.
(Bobby whispers to Melvin)
Melvin: Yeah. The blue girl is scary.
(After finally getting both Teether and Timmy quite by burping the first, and stapeling the second's ripped blanket together, Raven dumps all three kids on the bed, and breaths a sigh of relief at the silence; the kids stare at her, and she stares back)
Raven: Now what?
Melvin: Well, you could tell us a bedtime story. Kids like stories.
Raven: I don't really know of any stories.
Timmy: I want a story, story, story, STORY, STORY, STORY, STORY!!!!
Raven: Okay, okay! Let's see. So, last year for my birthday, my friends got me a cake and some balloons.
(Kids look amazed)
Raven: But I couldn't enjoy it, because my dad Trigon, this scary red demon with horns took over the world, and there was fire everywhere, and then this ugly guy Slade, who had a skeleton for a face, came after me, and...
(Kids look terrified)
Raven: ... My friends saved me, and we all had cake, the end!
Beast Boy: (To Raven, on the communicator) Kids are easy. All you gotta do is make silly faces. Oh, and kids love jokes. This one never fails. Why did the cookie go to the doctor?
(Raven remains quiet)
Beast Boy: You're supposed to ask "why."
Raven: (Rolling her eyes) Why?
Beast Boy: He went because he was feeling a little crummy! (Starts to laugh)
Melvin: (To Raven) Are you Waven?
Raven: (Blushing) You've got to be kidding...
Melvin: Let me go!
Raven: Nothing will make me happier.
Raven: (To Kids) We're going to play a game. It's called Don't. Bother. Raven. Rule number one: no talking!
(After kids disappear)
Raven: (To herself) Good idea, Robin. Put Raven in charge of the kids.
Monsieur Mallah: (After he is defeated, while leaving the area) This is the last time I work with children.
Melvin & Timmy: (After careening down the mountainside in a gondola, then coming to a halt) Do it again! Do it again!
Raven: No again.
Monsieur Mallah: (To Raven, after capturing Melvin, Timmy, and Teether) Say goodbye to your friends.
Raven: Nobody messes with my kids!
Melvin: He did it! Bobby just saved us!
(The kids cheers)
Raven: We're stranded in the middle of nowhere, and we've got a big gorilla chasing after us. How are we saved?
(The kids cry)
Look Closely: When Raven brought food out for Bobby, the plate had some food on it. Right before Raven gets up and heads back to the cabin after her short telecom with Beast Boy, notice the plate's content has mysteriously vanished. This could hint that Bobby is, in fact, real.
YTV airdate: May 1, 2006.
Raven's hand-to-hand fighting style is extremely similar to Robin's. This could suggest that he has been training her how to fight.
Running Gags: (1): Raven keeps telling Melvin that Bobby isn't real and also Melvin telling Raven "told you so."
(2): Teether throwing up on Raven.
(3): Timmy yelling "Monkey Man" when seeing Mallah.
(4): Teether chewing objects most babies wouldn't chew.
We learn that it has been a year since the Trigon incident.
Raven gives the kids a communicator at the end of this episode.
This episode brings out Raven's motherly side.
Timmy calls Msr. Mallah "monkey man."
It would appear that this is one of the first times Msr. Mallah appeared without the Brain around.
Teether's powers seem to be that he can chew any substance and then convert it into energy pellets, which he spits at the enemy.
Timmy's powers are sonic voice resonation.
Melvin's powers are similar to Raven's. She can create solid, living manifestations of her thoughts.
Raven and Beast Boy are the only Titans who talk in this episode.
Trigon is mentioned in Raven's bedtime story to the kids, making it the only mentioning of him this season.
Melvin's imaginary friend is a teddy bear.
The same wrinkle-faced woman from "Every Dog Has His Day" appears in this episode.
Raven makes the same aura disk she made for Cyborg in "Date With Destiny."
Opener: Raven waits at a bus station for the arrival of three young superheroes, whom she must protect.
This is the first time the episode is sung in Japanese in an episode that has to do with the season.
All three of the young heroes that Raven must protect have super powers.
Starfire and Cyborg are absent in this episode, but Robin appears without dialogue.
Opening theme song is sung in Japanese.
Hero Debut(s): Timmy, Bobby, Melvin, & Teether.
Raven must protect three children.
This episode premiered on a special night and time (Friday, Nov. 11th @ 6:30 PM EST/PST), as part of a "New to the 'Guz" Teen Titans marathon on Cartoon Network during Miguzi.
Second time one of the Titans is involved in an episode with one of the Brotherhood of Evil members. The first time was Robin and Madame Rouge in "Trust."
Villain(s): Monsieur Mallah (Brotherhood of Evil).
Timmy: STOP IT! STOP IT! STOP IT! (continuously, starts using his powers)
The way Timmy uses his powers here, is similar to how Danny Phantom first discovered his Ghostly Wail in the episode "The Ultimate Enemy":
Danny Phantom: Get away! Get away! Get AWAYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!
Melvin's power resembles Green Lantern's, though she does not need a ring. It is also similar to Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends, because what she imagines becomes real.
Timmy Tantrum: Name
Raven calls Timmy "Timmy Tantrum." This is a pun on the name of Timmy Turner, a character on The Fairly OddParents. Timmy, like Raven, is voiced by Tara Strong.
Melvin's constantly twitching ponytails have a striking resemblance to the ones Mihama Chiyo has on Azumanga Daioh.
Episode Title: Hide and Seek
The term "Hide and Seek" has been used for untold years as the name of a children's game where several players hide while another player designated as "It" searches for them. It is also used as an allusion to any situation where something or someone is being sought by someone else, which would apply to this episode (Raven and the kids "hiding," and Mallah "seeking").
Melvin's power to make her imaginary friends real, like Bobby, is parallel to those of an actual character from DC Comics named Dorothy Spinner.
Monsieur Mallah: This is the last time I work with children.
W.C. Fields made famous the acting axiom "Never work with children or animals." It was a comment made that demonstrates that the hardest acting is done alongside children and/or animals. Either they steal the show or it takes forever to finish the scene.
