  • The scene of the teens having a picnic in the park was identical to the picnic from “The Song Of Guitardo”. (01:05)
  • Tommy wore old green clothes from his Green Ranger days rather than white clothes. (01:05)
  • Billy wore his old glasses with the thick silver frames. (01:13)
  • Mr. Anderson looked like the disguised Putty who’d sold Zack the Pearls of Stillness, as well as Monty of Trick or Treat. (01:27)
  • Shown only from behind at the park, Jason was skinnier than usual. (03:47)
  • Zack had his hair back in its original style. (03:47)
  • Even if the sidewalk in the park was at the appropriate incline, the stroller would have surely come to a quick stop after entering the non-smooth grass. (03:53)
  • Adam wasn’t with the other Stone Canyon teens in one scene. (04:09)
  • Both Aisha and Kimberly paused to look scared rather than continuing to pursue the baby stroller. (06:16)
  • Rocky had several awkward and seemingly uncharacteristic lines, such as “That was truly awesome,” in response to Kim’s and Aisha’s saving of Jacob. (07:03)
  • Shown only from behind at the Ninja Tournament Finals, Zack was skinner than usual. (08:46)
  • Shown only from behind at the Ninja Tournament Finals, Jason was again skinnier than usual. (08:47)
  • The second ninja dressed in white was shown jumping into the ring twice. (10:13)
  • Rocky had several awkward and seemingly uncharacteristic lines, such as “It was really great to meet y’all,” after talking with Tommy, Kimberly, and Billy in the Youth Center parking lot. (12:18)
  • From another parking lot a considerable distance away (yet still within shouting distance), Billy looked back toward the Youth Center following Aisha’s scream and said, “Goldar,” yet since the three Ranger teens came running from around a corner of the Youth Center, Billy wouldn’t have been able to see Goldar as he was kidnapping the Stone Canyon teens and Mr. Anderson. (13:32)
  • When Tommy, Kimberly, and Billy all jumped and kicked several Putties at once, Tommy missed his Putty by a long shot, but it shattered anyway. (15:07)
  • Tommy oddly put his hair in a ponytail before teleporting. (15:50)
  • The Ranger teens changed position while watching the Viewing Globe -- Zack had been in front with Billy, but a shot from behind showed Billy, Zack, and Kimberly with Zack out of view. (16:27)
  • In the Cave of Despair with his four captives, Goldar didn’t give Rocky, Adam, and Aisha any choice to be made (in fact, he told them they didn’t have any choice about using their talents for evil), yet he then told them to think wisely, as they didn’t have much time. (17:20)
  • Jacob’s bottle appeared to be filled with water rather than milk. (18:14)
