  • There was a sign in the background when Video Vulture flew by that read “Buldont Studio”. (03:36)
  • Tommy called the Zeo V Power Sword the “Zeo V Battle Sword”. (09:49)
  • Upon switching back to US footage, Tommy was no longer holding his sword. (10:00)
  • When Tommy used his Zeo Laser Pistol, his trigger finger pulled the outer edge around the trigger, rather than the trigger itself. (11:27)
  • When Leaky Faucet prepared to spray the Rangers the first time, the background changed. (13:31)
  • Zordon agreed with Billy that by significantly altering the course of Sprocket’s movie, the Rangers might recover their powers, but there was no evidence of any loss of powers in the movie dimension. (14:28)
  • When the other Rangers joined Tommy and Tanya on the set, Leaky Faucet was no longer present. (14:55)
  • The steering wheel of the bus was on the right (not left) side. (15:51)
  • The bus passengers changed appearance and clothing after the switch to US footage. (16:13)
  • Klank’s alternate storyboard, which he presented to Sprocket, had Japanese writing all over it. (16:58)
  • The shot clapper in the control room of the studio read, “Scene 3013-6”, “Take 1”, “Prod. [Japanese writing]”, “Dir. Buldont”, “Buldont Studio”, “Day Nite Date”, and “Silent Sound”. (17:01)
  • The four monsters (two of which were created from costumes that came from the original movie set) appeared to combine to form Loco Nut, despite it being the third costume stolen from the set. (17:21)
