Other notes

Animation and/or technical glitches

  • Wet-Suit's outfit changes color.[1]
  • Wet-Suit's oxygen tanks and Leatherneck's backpack suddenly appear out of nowhere during some scene shifts.
  • In one scene, Hawk's face is not completely painted.
  • Buck McCann's outfit changes from gray to blue to white for a few cels during his tussle with Leatherneck.
  • As he drives past Leatherneck, Zandar is bald.

Continuity errors

  • Leatherneck knocks Zandar off his chopper and steals it, yet in the next scene Zandar is once again riding on a chopper with no explanation as to where it came from.
  • When the Dreadnoks arrive at Parris Island they fight the Cobra troops instead of G.I. Joe.
    • Then again, the Cobra cadets are dressed in marching band uniforms, not Cobra uniforms; besides, the Dreadnoks are not particularly bright and in their zeal for a fight they just started shooting at anything that moved.
  • At the end of the episode, the ground beneath McCann changes from grass to concrete as he stands up.
  • In most of the flashbacks, Leatherneck is still wearing all of his field gear, even when the Drill Pad at Parris Island as a Drill Sergeant would be the last place he would need it.

Miscellaneous trivia

  • The "Now You Know..." attached to this episode involved Spirit teaching kids not to underestimate someone who had lost one of their five senses.

Real-world references

  • The marching band hails from "Gerberville," a nod to RAH writer Steve Gerber.
  • Buck McCann is named after Leatherneck's voice actor, Chuck McCann.
  • The trucker wears a CAT hat.


  1. A major recurring problem during Season 2.
