Notable quotes


Animation and technical errors

Continuity errors

  • The creature, who originally appeared in "Skeletons in the Closet", was shown to be a one-eyed octopus; it has been changed to something crossing a cobra and an insect, and greatly increased in size.

Real-world references

  • The monster seen in Castle Destro is a reference to H. P. Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos.
  • When Destro's chant is played backwards, he states: "Anyone listening to this backwards for a secret occult message is a real dweeb!"
  • The title "Sins of Our Fathers" is derived from references in the Bible to the punishments for sins continuing down the generations.

Miscellaneous notes

  • Destro and Cobra Commander were sent on a "fool's errand" and "busy work". Was Serpentor planning to replace Destro?
  • Why was Dial-Tone unable to transfer to another military unit?
  • Why was Dial-Tone living in a cheap motel? He should have been able to find employment considering his experience and education.
  • This episode is a sequel to "Skeletons in the Closet".
