  • Somebody pointed out that the girl in the poster at the beginning of the episode looks like a female version of Danny.
  • Sam says that there are "no female characters in comics". It's ridiculous to say that there are no female superheroes if there's Wonder Woman, the Storm (X-Men) or Catwoman in media.
  • Cathy picked some comic books she found. She should ever thought of returning them to the store.
  • ...and her favorite Earth superhero is Liberty Lass. I've heard a lot of Liberty Lasses out there...
  • At the school's cafeteria, Cathy said that she was selected as a Miss Speed Reader in Rhapsodia.
  • Whenever Gilbert smiles with his Hypno-D braces on humans, they are hypnotized. However, his braces makes the Rhapsodians like Cathy tickle.
  • At the comic book store, when Cathy grabs a box of comic books, take a look closer at the silhouette on the left. That silhouette is the statue of Addison Single!
  • Except for Danny and Chris, the only kid in Singletown who doesn't seen and hypnotized in this episode is Jeremy.
  • How many comic books Gilbert has? 7 trillion comic books!
  • It's impossible for Danny to jump very high at comic book stacks after he puts the Electroseal to the door.
  • Gilbert is the first alien who receive a weapon from the MBC.
  • He also tells the MBC that if he has a chance to create a comic book, he'll call it "Cathy Lass and the Monster Busters".
