M.A.S.K. Technologies:

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.

In this episode, Scott decides to convert T-Bob into a watercraft.

To do this, he removes the wheel from the scooter mode and installs a paddle wheel to provide propulsion. On his feet he installs water skis.

Fortunately for Scott, the new mode works and he can ride T-Bob, like a jet ski, across the water.

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

The Reverser Machine was used by V.E.N.O.M. in what Miles Mayhem referred to as the 'Counter-Clockwise Caper'. When turned on, it caused all kinds of machinary to work backwards at increasing speed, causing chaos all round.

The first test of the Reverser Machine was conducted in Las Vegas. As soon as it was switched on, all the rides at the 'Carnival Carnival Casino' began running in reverse and the slot machines began spewing out all of the coins they had collected. As a side effect, Scott Trakker's robot T-Bob also began speaking, moving and eventually driving backwards. Vanessa Warfield was the only agent of V.E.N.O.M. to actually bear witness to this test, as she was undercover in Las Vegas to see how well the machine worked.

The following night, several V.E.N.O.M. vehicles left their hideout, with Jackhammer towing a truck carrying the Reverser. This time, Mayhem ordered Sly Rax to turn on the machine at full power. Matt Trakker almost lost his life when the revolving restaurant he was in went haywire and he found himself being thrown out of a window. Using her Aura mask, Gloria Baker managed to slow his downfall and save his life.

Meanwhile, Warfield and Cliff Dagger used giant vacuum cleaner like machines to suck up all the money that had been ejected from various slot machines. When Trakker and Baker arrived on the scene, they noticed that the vehicles of V.E.N.O.M. had been equiped with a counter-acting device, making them the only vehicles that handled normally.

V.E.N.O.M.'s next target was Hoover Dam. Vanessa Warfield was decent enough to warn a construction worker to tell his co-workers to clear the area as it was about to become very dangerous. Rax and Dagger had finished installing the Reverser at the base of the Dam. Once turned on, the turbines would go crazy trying to pump backwards and the vibration would tear the whole dam to peaces. Having thus caused the biggest disaster in history, V.E.N.O.M. would be able to get away cleanly without any interference from M.A.S.K.. To make sure nobody would get to the machine in time, Dagger used his Torch mask to seal the doors.

However, Gloria Baker had teamed up with Bruce Sato in Gator. Baker used Aura to open the doors, then Sato used his Lifter mask to pick up Gator and levitate it into position so Gloria could fire the Electric Ouch canon to disable the Reverser.

Meanwhile, Dusty Hayes used Rhino's Battering Ram Bumper to crack open V.E.N.O.M.'s truck filled with money. Losing money fast, the agents of V.E.N.O.M. made their escape, leaving Dusty to clean up the money from the road and surrounding cacti.

Summary of Counter-Clockwise Caper

Location of the episode*: Las Vegas, Lake Mead, Hoover Dam
 
Short summery*: V.E.N.O.M. rob casinos in Las Vegas with the help of a machine that makes everything in Vegas go backwards. They also place the machine inside the Hoover Dam, which will be destroyed as the water is pumped backwards while they escape with the stolen money. M.A.S.K. destroy the machine and recover the money from V.E.N.O.M.  

Safety tip*
Matt and Gloria compliment Scott for putting on extra suncream after swimming in the pool at the Trakker mansion.
 

Facts worth knowing about Counter-Clockwise Caper

Particularly in this episode*:

Matt tells Gloria to take Thunderhawk out to search the streets while he surveils Las Vegas from atop the revolving restaurant.
•Later, he orders Bruce Sato to switch vehicles with Gloria, making Bruce Thunderhawk's co-pilot, although Gloria is not seen driving Rhino.
•Finally, Bruce mans the Electric Ouch cannon on Gator with Gloria driving, while Dusty Hayes drives Rhino
Sly Rax is Cliff Dagger's co-driver in Jackhammer.  

Small mistakes in the episode*:

•When Matt leaves Scott and T-Bob at Lake Mead, he closes the door on Thunderhawk (with the window closed) but after this his voice is not muffled when he speaks again.
•After Dusty cracks his joke about money growing on trees, he and Matt are seen laughing loudly, but only Matt is heard.
