Other notes

Animation and/or technical glitches

  • When the Joes and Oktober Guard are seen riding sleds, Scarlett is riding with Duke while Roadblock is riding with Daina. In the next shot, however, Roadblock is suddenly with Horrorshow.
  • Roadblock covers his eyes and Horrorshow makes a crack about being afraid of heights. When Roadblock responds, he has Gung Ho's voice.
    • It's obvious that it was supposed to be Gung Ho riding with Horrorshow, but the animators colored him incorrectly as Roadblock.

Continuity errors

  • Previously known as The Oktober Guard, here the team is referenced as "Red Oktober."
  • For a group that is trapped in time, the Cossacks have pretty advanced modern-day laser rifles at their disposal.
  • Even though the Romanov was blocked in by ice, there's no explanation as to why the cossacks never ventured outside of the ship. It couldn't have been the ice blockade; a single H.I.S.S. tank blows it up with one shot from its cannons!

Miscellaneous trivia

  • Regardless of the provision in the Seward File, does it really seem feasible that the American government would simply hand over Alaska to a guy who shows up with a diamond-encrusted cup in his hand?
  • Apparently the team has been whittled down to Colonel Brekhov, Horrorshow and Daina; Stormavik and Wong are conspicuously absent.
  • Just like their comicbook counterparts, Red Oktober starts the episode out as G.I. Joe's adversaries, but if the need arises, they ally themselves with the Joes. See also The Invaders.
