Main Characters in this Episode
- Goof (factual errors): Dr. Smith's extreme caution with handling the sculpture made of plastic explosive was unnecessary. Plastic explosives are notoriously stable until the proper detonation is applied. Compounds such as C-4 can be handled, molded, formed, dropped and even exposed to flame and set on fire without exploding. The value of plastic explosives lies in the very fact that it takes a deliberate act of detonation to set them off.
