  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Mandora calls for help, Lion-O tells her that he can't get to her because they have no intergalactic vehicles. In the two previous two episodes the Feliner performed intergalactic travel. This is due to this episode being shown out of production order.

    • Goof: When Lion-O was warning Mandora, Captain Cracker ripped out the microphone on the dashboard, but when Mandora sent her mayday message it was back in place.

    • Goof: When the ThunderCats catch Captain Cracker and his robots in the net, Captain Cracker cries out, "You've got your foot in my good eye!" However, the robot's foot was clearly rubbing against his patched eye on the left and not his good eye on the right.

    • Sword Weakness: Lion-O reveals that the Sword of Omens cannot be activated in a magnetic field.

    • This episode establishes that the characters in the show can breathe in outer space without suits or equipment. There also appears to be gravity in space as shown when Lion-O walks the plank and begins falling through space.

    • (Aboard the Jolly Rogers)
      Captain Cracker: Well, my boy, maybe you'd like to know our next port of call. Eee! Hey? Third Earth!
      Lion-O: What?!
      Captain Cracker: That's right. Your home port. Eee! Tonight, the skull and crossbones will be flying over your Cats Lair!

    • (Coming to a locked door on their way to rescue Mandora)
      Quick Pick: As a trustee, I had, eh, access to the prison keys. Fortunately, I made copies against just such an emergency.
      Lion-O: Stop talking and open it!

    • Captain Cracker: We'll have to have a -eee- special welcome for Officer Mandora.
      Parrot: Boil her in oil! Boil her in oil!
