Miscellaneous trivia

  • The "Now you know..." segment attached to this episode involved Barbecue telling kids not to pull fire alarms.
  • The official Sunbow synopsis of this episode has some substantial differences from the episode as it aired:
A Joe transport plane is caught in a storm, forcing the pilot to ditch his cargo, a valuable Mauler tank, over the desert. Dusty and Footloose volunteer to stay with the tank until it can be retrieved. They inadvertently parachute onto a Cobra proving ground and discover the evil organization's latest innovation: a metal alloy that's impervious to any conventional weapon! With tanks and planes constructed of this alloy, Cobra could attack the Joe team - or anyone else - without fear. With a battalion of Cobras hot on their heels, can Dusty and Footloose survive the track across the hostile desert to warn the Joes?
