M.A.S.K. Technologies:

M.A.S.K. has its headquarters at a gas station in Boulder Hill. Boulder Hill Gas works as a functional gas station, complete with gas pumps and a repair garage. Buddie "Clutch" Hawks, M.A.S.K. agent in charge of upkeep on the fleet of transforming vehicles, also maintains the gas station's cover as a working facility. If under attack, the gas station has offensive and defensive transformation abilities, including freeze cannons and armor plating.

Inside, M.A.S.K.'s headquarters is far from ordinary; M.A.S.K.'s vehicles are stored inside, as well as theenergizing device that powers the team's masks. Matt Trakker has a subterranean transportation system that shuttles him between his mansion and M.A.S.K. headquarters. All this is supplemented by an incredibly powerful computer.

The M.A.S.K. Computer is housed at both Matt Trakker's mansion and at Boulder Hill. Trakker often uses voice commands to ask the computer to analyse objects and photographs and has programmed the computer to select the most suitable M.A.S.K. agents for each mission.

Occasionally, Trakker uses a portable version housed in a suitcase that has the same capabilities.

The computer is also connected to all MASK vehicles. So Matt uses it regularly in Thunderhawk to let the computer choose the best agents for the mission.

Every MASK agent had it, every fan wanted it, the iconic MASK watch.

With the watch, today we would say smartwatch, the agents were informed that they were selected by the M.A.S.K. computer for a mission.

A flashing mask, similar to Matt's Ultra Flash mask, appeared in the watch's display, signaling to the agents that they were needed.

These left thereupon everything and drop, and hurried to the mission.

The watch was silver / red with a metal bracelet.


T-BOB technologies, activities, outfits:

Like all MASK agents' vehicles, Scott's vehicle can transform T-Bob. In this, and many other episodes, T-Bob's default mode can be seen.

T-Bob has a wheel on which he can ride after his transformation, like a one-wheeled scooter.

Scott uses T-Bob very often as a means of transportation, transforming T-Bob into scooter mode.

This mode was also part of the toy, but rather poorly implemented, as T-Bob had 3 wheels here.

V.E.N.O.M. Technologies:

The miniature emitter is one of V.E.N.O.M.'s technologies. They used it to shrink cars and then steal them. Where it came from is not clear.

Interestingly, the miniature emitter seems to use the same technology as the mask Gulliver of Calhoun Burn from the M.A.S.K. team.

When the miniature emitter is used it creates the same pattern to shrink as the mask does.

The miniature emitter is portable and as large as a fully automatic weapon.

On the run, VENOM simply leaves the miniature emitter behind.

Summary of Disappearing Act

Short summery*: V.E.N.O.M. steals cars from an auto museum by shrinking them.  

Safety tip*
Scott reminds T-Bob to always wear a baseball helmet, which turns out to be a baseball cap that's much too small for him.

Facts worth knowing about Disappearing Act

Particularly in this episode*:

•Ramsden is seen sitting on the couch in Matt Trakker's study not seen since the episode Video VENOM.  

Small mistakes in the episode*:

•When Matt Trakker is first seen sitting behind a desk in his mansion, his body is too large in proportion to the desk. In the next shot shown from overhead the proportions have been fixed.
•The drainage grating is removed by a mysterious pair of hands. When the hands move it to one side, the arms stay attached to the grating instead of letting go of it. Later, when the cars are pulled into the grating with a magnet, the hole is much smaller than before.
•When the vehicles of M.A.S.K. burst into V.EN.O.M.'s hideout, four villains mouth the words 'It's M.A.S.K.' but only one voice is heard.
Mayhem's lips don't move when he says "But we're not, get them! I'm gonna love breaking in these new shoes"
•Tiny Rhino fires it's lasers at Vanessa, managing to shoot over her shoulder in the first shot, but hitting her feet as well as Mayhem's in the next shot. The animation cel of the lasers should have projected under Vanessa instead of over her during the first shot.
