Remember: a cobra is a snake and 'snake' is 'sneak' spelled sideways.

OBSERVATIONS
The Baroness' disguise as Natasha could be a nod to Natasha Fatale, the female spy from the Bullwinkle cartoon. Also, the names on Mainframe's list of kidnapped models were based on real world celebrities [Candy Huntly (model Christie Brinkley), Sherry Eastman (singer Sheena Easton), Tara Dawset (model Farrah Fawcett) and Carol Leagues (model Cheryl Tiegs)] (Matthew Pak's 3 3/4" G.I.Joe Collector Guide - Volume Two: The Television Episodes).

The scene with the Joes running out of the Cobra base was recycled for the shot of Joes entering Madame Veil's base.

While traveling to Madame Veil's base, Una and Satin make one reference to The Wizard of Oz and two to Cinderella. Satin states she feels like Cinderella, however, like to fairy tale the illusion ends at the stroke of midnight. Una then tells her friend that they are no longer in Kansas, a line spoken by Judy Garland in the film The Wizard of Oz.

ERRORS
Zarana's gun holster was missing while she was advancing toward the Dreadnoks (Matthew Pak's 3 3/4" G.I.Joe Collector Guide - Volume Two: The Television Episodes).

The glove on Flint's left hand disappears when he crosses his arms.

Wet-Suit's diving suit was gold and black instead of blue and white.

A red glove suddenly appears on Zartan's hand.

Dr. Mindbender's gloves were not included in a shot (right).
