In the DVD version of this episode, the rubble the Dinobots are supposed to vaporize doesn't disappear. It simply glows with an aura around it, and then the aura fades when the "vaporizing" sound effect happens
In the shot where the Autobots are chained against the wall Optimus is completely blue.
Megatron: (in front of the weakened, captured Autobots) Prepare for terminal meltdown. (He and the other Decepticons raise their weapons) Decepticons, ready, aim...(looks up and see the Dinobots flying towards them)...what are THOSE?
Slag: Which ones friend?
Sludge: (pointing to Autbot symbol on his chest) Uh, ones with face like this. I think...
Slag: (pulls out weapon, starts shooting) That good enough for Slag.
Bumblebee: Come on, Grimlock! Try steppin' on a bug!
Rumble: If on Decepticon turf you should happen to tumble, look out robot, because here comes Rumble!
Spike: Bumblebee! Optimus told you to stay at headquarters!
Bumblebee: I don't like to disobey, but I had to do something! Hope Optimus won't be mad!
Spike: He won't be anything if we don't get some help fast!
The Dinobots are built by Ratchet and Wheeljack.
First appearances of Grimlock, Slag, and Sludge.
There is a continuity error between the series and the comic book on how the Dinobots were created. In the comics, they were created on Earth around the time the original Autobots and Decepticons crash-landed on Earth. Shockwave left to investigate, and from there he battled the Dinobots (all 5 were present as opposed to the trio of Grimlock, Slag, and Sludge shown in this episode). Both sides defeated the other, as Shockwave was buried under tons of rubble, and the Dinobots sank in a tar pit, only to be rescued millions of years later when Ratchet needed allies to defeat Megatron.
