Notes

  • This is the second crossover with another series, the first being in the third season of Mighty Morphin' with Masked Rider AKA Kamen Rider Black RX, both made by Saban.
  • The Ninja Turtles costumes are the costumes used in Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation. They also include Venus de Milo who is in that series.
  • This episode marks the debut of the rest of the Galaxy Gliders.
  • Due to The Next Mutation being filmed in Vancouver while Power Rangers was filmed in California, the Turtles were portrayed by different suit and voice actors in this episode to those from their own show.
  • The Turtles exhibit the ability to reflect and bounce around an energy ball thrown by an enemy. This ability is usually for Venus de Milo, but not seen by the other, male turtles in The Next Mutation. Splinter displays such an ability in the anime OVA of Ninja Turtles, so this appearance implies that the male turtles were taught how to do this.
  • This makes for the first time that the Power Rangers were referred to as comic book characters with it happening again in Ninja Storm's "Prelude to a Storm" by Tori Hanson.
  • This episode picked up where "Save Our Ship" left off.
  • Ecliptor is not seen, with Astronema, in this episode, after being destroyed in the last episode. 
  • This marks the last time to date that a team of Power Rangers has allied with someone from a different television show.
  • At the end of the episode when the Turtles are riding the Galaxy Gliders Michelangelo is the only one seen which Galaxy Glider he is riding.

Errors

  • When Astronema tries to cover Leonardo's mouth to make him stop talking, she covers his beak instead.
