Did You Know?


The unnamed newscaster who appears throughout the episode is Hector Ramirez, a character created by Buzz Dixon as a parody of Geraldo Rivera. Originally intended as a onetime character for the G.I. Joe episode G.I. Joe: Twenty Questions (1985), Ramirez would later appear in other Hasbro based productions, Transformers, Jem (1985), and InHumanoids (1986). According to Dixon, this was meant to imply that the four series took place in the same universe. See more »


When discussing how to dispose of their prisoners, Lord Chumley's lips move as he dismisses a suggestion from Dinsmore, but there's no audio. See more »


[first lines]
Oktober Guard: Oktober Guard-1 to base, I'm receiving a sonar reading from beneath the ice. Probable submarine.
[a giant hook pierces the jet from beneath the ice]
Oktober Guard: Comrades, I've been struck! Damage critical. I'm ejecting.
