Other notes

Animation and/or technical glitches

  • While in the M.O.B.A.T., Flint is wearing a green shirt. It changes back to black in subsequent scenes.
  • Destro's gauntlets are animated with thumbnails as he closely examines the control chip.
  • When the Dreadnoks burst from the barn, they are followed by Destro and Baroness, who are driving an A.W.E. Striker! The A.W.E. Striker is changed to a Stinger thereafter.
  • At the end of the episode, Wild Bill climbs up to the top of Joe HQ while wearing his civilian duds. In the next shot he is wearing his blue and orange fatigues.

Continuity errors

  • When they approach the alleged Cobra ranch, Lady Jaye explains that the big antenna dishes they are passing are a solar power station. Then she states that if they fell into the wrong hands the antennas could be used to fry a city. So... wouldn't it make more sense to concentrate on the solar power station as a possible Cobra target instead of wasting time on the dude ranch?
  • Wild Bill is visible - in uniform - charging the ranch house with the rest of the Joe reinforcements. He should be out rounding up the stampede.

Miscellaneous trivia

  • At the dude ranch, Wild Bill introduces himself as "Bill Austin" and Lady Jaye as his sister "Jane," possibly a play on words referring to author Jane Austen
  • Damn, but The Baroness looks good in a halter top.

Real-world references

  • Cobra Commander destroys the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco!
  • The Commander also mentions NASA.
  • The family's name, Joad, comes from John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath.
