Actor Allusion: In "Plus One", Mayor Luskey remarks "This is why I hate nature", which is an apparent play on Carmine Fanzone's catch phrase of "This is why I hate machines" from Transformers Animated. Both Luskey and Fanzone were voiced by Jeff Bennett.
Ascended Fanon: Possibly unintentional, but Blades' human disguise is strikingly similar to a standard procedure of drawing a Transformer under the 'gijinka' genre by having the character wear clothing patterned after their bot form, akin to a cosplayer.
Production Posse: The show is a reunion with cast and crew My Friends Tigger And Pooh due to series developers Nicole Dubuc, Brian Hohlfeld, and Jeff Kline having worked on that series as producers. Also joining them are writers Dean Stefan and Kim Beyer Johnson, voice director Ginny McSwain, and series regulars Peter Cullen, Jim Cummings, Mark Hamill, and Kath Soucie voicing recurring characters here.
The plot for the episode "Enemy Of My Enemy" shares similarities with the Miles from Tomorrowland episode "Unexpected Ally". Both episodes involve the protagonist temporarily teaming up with an enemy to catch a more dangerous enemy. Both episodes were also written by Nicole Dubuc.
