  • After a fruit stand owner had dressed Kelly the chimp in a vest, shades, a mophead for hair, and a beret, the man had removed the mophead and beret when Bulk and Skull approached, but Kelly was then wearing them again when Zedd turned her into a monster. (10:35)
  • In his garage after having obtained a fur sample from Sinister Simian using a pair of tongs while morphed, unmorphed Billy told Zordon he still needed a way to administer the antidote, but right in front of him was the missile he would use. (14:09)
  • The footage of Billy talking about hitting the right spot on Sinister Simian was inverted from left to right. (16:17)
  • To aim the antidote missile at the right spot on giant Sinister Simian, Billy targeted her heart, saying it was where memories were kept, yet scientists such as Billy understood the brain to be responsible for cognition, not the heart. (16:22)
  • When Kelly the chimp returned to normal size, she was wearing none of the items of the outfit given to her by the fruit stand owner. (17:44)
  • After Sinister Simian had been defeated, Zedd laughed at Rita, saying this was what happened when she tried to take over the world alone and behind his back, but he had been an active participant in the plan. (18:00)
