    This is the Tower of Omens, where the Book of Omens was kept by Jaga and the Clerics. The design is reminiscent of the ancient structure called Petra, in Jordan. That same structure featured in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

    This is the logo or symbol for the Evil Mutants. It appeared on the card back for certain LJN figures, and is located above the evil characters. It is also on the Mumm-Ra battery pack used to activate his light up feature.

    Mumm-Ra's dog was named Ma-Mutt in the show, and the larger companion toy (sold on its own) had the same name. However, the smaller version that was packaged along with Mumm-Ra was called Ravage on the toy blister.

    Moby Dick inspired the tale of Captain Tunar and the Ramlak. Directly quoted from Moby Dick, Tunar screams: " for hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee". Note, this exact quote was also used in Star Trek II Wrath of Khan.
