TriviaEdit

  • Tin-Tin wears the same diving outfit that she sported in Edge Of Impact.
  • Brains' diving suit was previously worn by Mike Bromley, a diver in the Stingray episode Secret of the Giant Oyster. Bromley was also voiced by David Graham.
  • This episode features the series smallest guest cast, with only two characters (Professor Blakely and Hassan Ali) other than the regular characters.
  • Aboard Thunderbird 2, Tin-Tin has an Air Terrainean flight bag with her (presumably acquired during her fateful trip on the Fireflash Aircraft in Trapped in the Sky).
  • Tin-Tin points out the pyramids during the flight to the Middle East (her next visit there is in Thunderbird 6).

GoofsEdit

  • When Brains is hypnotized by The Hood for the first time and collapses, between shots his glasses simply disappear. They are subsequently shown to have fallen off, but the action is not seen on-screen; one moment the glasses are on his face, and the next they have vanished.
