  1. As Rita was about to send Putties to fight the teens, Squatt was playing an accordian and Finster was playing a drum, but neither instrument was making noise. (11:44)
  2. After Trini jumped over a crowd of Putties Mighty Mantis had summoned, they were no longer there. (12:47)
  3. The Power Sword flipped between shots--it flew down from the sky point-down, but it was point-up when the Megazord caught it. (16:11)
