The second scene of the episode involving the five teens, with Billy, Bulk and Skull in Jason's Karate class, was actually shot for the "Dark Warrior" episode. This explains why the teens are wearing their Communicators in this episode, when they don't actually get until the second episode "High Five". The originally shot scene for this episode had the teens being what the network had considered to be "too mean and violent to Bulk and Skull". That scene has NEVER been seen publicly, but they are reportedly wearing the same clothes in it as they are in the first and third scenes of this episode. See more
