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

In the credits the "Bestboy Grip" is listed at "Bestbot Grip". See more »
