"Take it easy! No fires, no tornadoes, no ice. Easy on the catastrophe, OK? Understand? Comprendo? Capeesh?"

  • This episode marks the first appearance of Comet Guy.


  • After Launchpad and DW burst into Steelbeak's hideout, for a brief instance DW's mask becomes feather-colored as he lunges into action.
  • When Comet Guy dances past the others, they're suddenly all clean after being covered in soot from the explosion. In Steel Beak's close-up, his jacket has little patches of soot again.
