  • Trivia

    • Superman is able to outsmart Mxyzptlk by using his heat vision to change his lead suit back into tin, thereby rendering his formula useless. But how can he change one metal into another? Not until Firestorm comes later in another SuperFriends incarnation would any of them have the capability of doing this.

      Both Aquaman and Superman's depictions of the Scarecrow and Tin Man were patterned after the two famous portrayers from the 1939 musical film of "Oz", Ray Bolger and Jack Haley.

  • Quotes

  • Notes

    • Batman, Robin, and the Wonder Twins have very minor roles in this episode. Jayna's is smallest with a non-speaking cameo.

  • Allusions

    • The little creatures that capture the three heroes near the end seem curiously like the Jawas from Star Wars.

    • Superman: Somewhere over the rainbow.
      Superman quotes this line at the end. The whole episode is
      based on the 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz, and his quote is reference to where the tornado took him, Aquaman and Wonder Woman.
