Home Video release[]




  • After Zak splits the "what do you call it" in two with his firebreath to stop Max and Ord fighting about who takes it home first, the crystal from the sparkling sand and the wrecking ball are located at the wrong spots since the crystal should have in the same spot as the sparkling sand and the wrecking ball was now too separate from the tower that it wrecked.

  • This is the only episode where the same character cries twice, each for a different reason, that character being Ord.

    • The second time, it's because splitting the boys' group project made it not work, leaving him with nothing to show his mother.
