Team Possible's Transportation

  • School bus
  • Walking


  • The candy Ron was eating in this episode was called Shocks Rocks, it send a burst of static electricity throughout the eater’s body. This is a reference to Pop Rocks, the candy that crackles and pops as it dissolves in the eater’s mouth.


  • Shego does not use her glow, nor mention Kim's name in this episode.
  • In this episode Kim does not fight Shego, nor take down Drakken. Instead saving them from getting destroyed by the Electrostatic-Illuminator.


  • The first time we see the Electrostatic-Illuminator (in the flashback), it's working with seconds (we see the number 60 to refer a minute), but when we see the photo of Miss Go, it's working with minutes (52560000 minutes), and at the end of the episode, when it's about to explode, returns to work with seconds
  • On the Ramp of Doom Drakken made as a kid, the toy figure should have done a loop the loop, then went around in a circle once before flying into the lasers, but when Shego pushed the figure, it did a loop the loop, then flew off the ramp into the lasers.
