Behind the Scenes:
There were fashions designed for a scene that was cut from this episode, where Jem and the Holograms dress out as fans.

Trivia:
Morvania is a made up country. Apparently it's a small country and has a royal family. The country Morvania also appears in other cartoons, where it is located somewhere between Bosnia Herzegovina, Serbia and Montenegro, Albania, and Macedonia.

Kimber has an exact lookalike in Adriana, not even her own sister can tell them apart. But their voices are slightly different. But then Jerrica can't even tell the difference between Kimber's and Stormer's voice.

Adriana says she will be 18 years old in one week. Considering that Kimber is her exact lookalike, one might also take for granted that Kimber is the same age.

Kimber is not included in the music video of "Here Comes Trouble" by Jem and the Holograms.

Kimber gets kidnapped again.

Once again we get an example of what a good swimmer Kimber is, and diver, and very brave.

Jerrica turns into Jem right in front of princess Adriana, but Adriana happens to turn away at that moment and doesn't understand where Jem came from. [Information by Matthew]

Other episodes with lookalikes are "One Jem Too Many" and "The Fan".

We get to hear part of what could be a Jem song, when Jem and the Holograms rehearse with the wrong Kimber. It's a shame it wasn't made into a song, it has a nice intro.

Eric and the Misfits save Jem, Aja, Shana and Adriana's life.

Yet another example where Jem projects a hologram which is clearly visable and unrealistic to a group of people who don't know about Synergy. No one saw it came from Jem though.
