* DullSurprise: The kids in the American version are at about the level you'd expect from a 60's TV dub, but the child actor dubbing Mickey takes it to a whole new level -- every one of his lines is delivered so flatly and loudly that he comes off as a belligerent, snide tough guy ("We like it ''very much!"'').

* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: The Phantom claims that the planet Krankor is "half a million [[TwoOfYourEarthMinutes Earth miles from Earth]]". To put it in perspective, our moon is just under a quarter of a million miles away. A half a million miles wouldn't put them out of our solar system... it wouldn't even get them halfway to Mars! Although Krankor being quit close to Earth ''would'' close several plotholes...

** Wally actually does wear a mask in his Prince of Space identity, but he's still woefully inept at keeping it cool and allaying suspicions. "Wait, how did Prince of Space get in here and-" "NEVERMIND THAT, GO!"

** The villain travels through space to the planet Earth, so that he can steal a formula for rocket fuel that will allow him to... travel through space. This is even [[HandWave hand-waved]] in the film itself, by a group of journalists who ask the head scientist why such an advanced race needs Earth technology. The scientist's explanation - their fuel technology lags behind ours - is wholly unconvincing.

The scientist's explanation - their fuel technology lags behind ours - is wholly unconvincing. How could they master space flight with inferior fuel technology to 1950s earth? Then again, seeing as how they made four round-trips to earth throughout the film, maybe they are just not very fuel-efficient.

* PlayingWithFire: The Guardian
* PlotHole: If The Phantom Of Krankor could observe the Humans from space, and peek into anywhere in the world, why didn't he just observe the creation of the formula and take notes? Of course, this blatant lapse in logic vanishes upon the realization that Phantom is a total clod.
