  • Trivia

    • Tidbits: The Wonder Pets change things up "Save the Chameleon!" Besides wearing each other's costumes, they also change the flyboat into a "drumboat" using a drum in place of the usual red disc (which was stuck on the roof.) Only music is played during the opening intro of "Save the Platypus!" Ming-Ming begins and ends the story in Tuck's aquarium. The flyboat nearly flies away when Tuck and Ming-Ming fight over the sail and drop it into the flyboat.

    • Celery Treat: In "Save the Chameleon!" the Wonder Pets have their celery with lychee nuts offered by the father chameleon. In "Save the Platypus!" they get the celery by special delivery from a kangaroo.

    • Dress Up Time: In "Save the Chameleon!" the Wonder Pets dress up wearing drums, which they play briefly. They then jump into the box and come out wearing each other's costumes. Linny is wearing Tuck's hat and green cape, Tuck is wearing Ming-Ming's goggles and blue cape and Ming-Ming is wearing Linny's cap and red cape.

      In "Save the Platypus!" only Ming-Ming comes out with a different outfit. She wears a Groucho Marx nose and mustache and tries to amuse Tuck into talking to her again, but jumps back for her normal outfit when it doesn't work.
