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:

In order for Scott to communicate with his father Matt Trakker, T-Bob has installed a communication system.

The keypad, microphone and speaker are located on the back of T-Bob's head. Covered with a flap.

The communication system often helps Scott and T-Bob out of trouble, but Scott has also used it to save a mission or two.

Scott can contact the M.A.S.K. team with it, or he is contacted over it by the M.A.S.K. team.

Summary of The Royal Cape Caper

Location of the episode*: Hawaii, USA
 
Short summery*: V.E.N.O.M. steals the artifacts of King Kamehameha (a cape and helmet) and earns big money by selling fake replicas until M.A.S.K. puts an end to their scheme.  

Safety tip*
Scott Trakker tells the boy next door he should never stick his hand in a running lawnmower.
 

Facts worth knowing about The Royal Cape Caper

Particularly in this episode*:

Scott Trakker refers to Jules Verne's 1870 book Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.
Hondo MacLean serves as Thunderhawk's co-pilot during this mission.
Rhino is shown during the agent selection and gets a brief mention from the M.A.S.K.-Computer, but Alex Sector joins Hondo and Matt in Thunderhawk's backseat instead.
Matt trakker finds himself knocked out on a conveyor belt again, just like he did in the episode The Lippizaner Mystery.  

Small mistakes in the episode*:

•The masks of Hondo and Matt come out of the roof in Thunderhawk in flight mode, where are they stored there?
•As Hondo MacLean is pushing the button to stop the conveyor belt, at one point an error in the animation layers makes it appear there is another button beneath the one being pressed.
•When Julio Lopez says "Time to practice your maneuvers, V.E.N.O.M." as he pilots Firefly, there is a noticeable jump-cut in the scrolling background plate.
•The tops of the trees change as they scroll into view when Floyd Malloy is trying to walk on air after losing Vampire.  

Useful information*:

•The opening scene uses the same music heard at the start of the Inspector Gadget, episode "Volcano Island", also composed by Shuki Levi & Haim Saban. The Inspector Gadget theme can clearly be recognized.
