    Episode #26, "Glitter and Gold", served as a standalone bridge episode between the first and second seasons made at the request of Hasbro. The episode served to introduce the second edition of the toy line, which had been just released when the episode aired, most noticeably the "Glitter and Gold" Rio and Jem dolls and the "Rock n' Curl" Jem doll and the Glitter and Gold Rockin' Roadster toy car. Many of the characters in this episode wear dresses which were sold as separate alternate fashions for the dolls. Also, the character of Clash, who had had pink hair with a streak of aquamarine up to that point, appears for the first time with purple hair to match the doll. Although Clash would continue to have purple hair for the rest of the series, this is the only episode where she has long, wavy hair like the doll.

    Unusually for a rock band, Jetta's main instrument is the saxophone, although only three Misfits songs ("I Like Your Style", "Trapped" and "Free And Easy") feature sax lines. She is seen playing the sax on other videos despite the songs featuring no sax parts, except on the "Congratulations" video where she's playing a keytar. In the original script of her first episode appearance she was a bass player, hence the initial rift with Roxy, but it was changed to a saxophone when the episode was animated.
