Trivia

Notice that Billy never puts on the goggles that he has on his head until the end of act 3 when he is accepted into the ELE and officially becomes Dr Horrible. Until that point they are merely a prop for a wannabe. The goggles would seem to signify that 'Dr Horrible is here' as the song lyrics would attest. Billy is no longer the dominant personality and Dr Horrible has taken over. See more »

Goofs

At the end, when Dr. Horrible put his goggles on over his eyes, you can see the indentations in his forehead from the goggles pressing against it from at least three previous takes. See more »
