  • Trivia

    • After throwing Hans and Carl around, Wonder Woman runs after them, presumably to tie them up with her magic lasso. However, when she throws the lasso it captures Erica, whom she was standing next to only seconds before.

    • Goof: In the scene where Erica is telling Hans her plan to use Gargantua to capture Wonder Woman, she is standing outside the gorilla's cage where there is a life-size cutout of Wonder Woman just within reach. However, when Erica walked to the cage moments before, the cutout was nowhere to be seen.

    • The picture of Wonder Woman that Erica gives Gargantua in order to reprogram him is a still from the episode "Beauty on Parade".

    • In the previous epsiode, Drusilla says the first thing an Amazon learns is to never talk about Paradise Island. In this episode, along with several later ones, Wonder Woman talks about it freely, as though it is common knowledge that she is from Paradise Island.

    • When Gargantua kidnaps Steigler, the 1st MP comes in the room and presses the red emergency button on the wall. Seconds later, the 2nd MP comes in and the red button has vanished and is not there for the rest of the scene.

    • Why don't the MPs shoot at Gargantua when he abducts Steigler--like the sergeant does when Wonder Woman and Gargantua are fighting?

  • Quotes

    • Steve: (about Gargantua) He must have sensed you wouldn't have hurt him.
      Wonder Woman: It's just a little kindness and tenderness and love that transcends those barriers with animals. And with people.
      Steve: Wonder Woman, you're amazing.

      General Blankenship: It's like something out of a King Kong movie.

      The 1933 movie King Kong was about a gigantic gorilla who is found by a film crew living on an uncharted island. The movie, filmed in black & white, starred Fay Wray, Robert Armstrong, and Bruce Cabot.

    • Gargantua
