Significant Moments and FactsEdit

  • Wheeler makes a reference to the film Alien.
  • When Professor Posy drops pieces of meat into his Venus flytraps, they close automatically. In real life, the six hairs on each side of the flytrap are what make the trap close. Either two of them must be moved or the same hair must be moved twice within a few seconds.


  • Captain Planet: See no weevil--hear no weevil!
  • Captain Planet (to Skumm, upon seeing the 5.5-ton weevil Sherman): Well...imagine that. A pest bigger than you.
