Truck Rangers Trivia

S1E14 Diagram of badges


  • Going by production order, this is the fifteenth episode of the first season.
  • This episode reveals Blaze, AJ, Gabby, the Monster Machines, Joe and Gus are all Truck Rangers.
  • This is the first time Crusher encounters a skunk.
  • This episode reveals that Blaze is an excellent guitar player and singer.
    • It's also revealed that Crusher can play the accordion.
  • This is the first time Stripes sings, as shown when he salutes and sings the Truck Rangers jingle.
    • Stripes is the fifth Monster Machine other than Blaze to sing, after Darington, Crusher, Starla and Pickle.
  • This is the third episode where Crusher steals something after Tool Duel and The Jungle Horn.
  • Sound Wave Showdown is the first song that exceeds the usual 30-50 second length, as well as the first to last about a minute.
    • It's also the first song to actually be sung onscreen by the characters, as songs are generally performed offscreen during montages.
  • Blaze is revealed to have a measure of four meters long.
  • The type of guitar that Blaze uses is a tenor electric, as despite having the appearance of a bass (having four knobs on the headstock instead of six), it sounds like a regular electric but in a mid-tone range.
  • This is the first, and so far, only episode where Starla is not seen with her cowboy hat throughout the whole episode.
  • This is the first episode that Blaze remains transformed for the rest of the episode.
  • Even though all the main characters were part of the Truck Rangers, they weren’t seen with such nor was Gabby shown leading the troop in future episodes.

Running Gags

  • Crusher trying to earn the super ranger badges by cheating, but no matter how hard he tried, he comes across a skunk.


  • Whenever Gabby is about to arrive, the "Reveille" bugle call can be heard, which is a traditional call to wake up the members of a military facility at sunrise.
  • When Blaze defeats the Robo-Bear during Sound Wave Showdown, it's a reference to the Dora the Explorer episode "Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom", when Dora defeats the Greedy King.
  • The Truck Rangers are a spoof of the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts of America.
  • The volume knob on Blaze's amplifier going up to eleven is a reference to the movie This Is Spinal Tap, where an amplifier has the same thing. 


  • When Blaze and Stripes enter the cave and they come to the first set of tunnels, Stripes' hat is gone.
  • When Blaze and AJ raise the flag, the badges can be seen on the stage but later on, Gabby unveils them.
    • In addition, while Blaze is transforming and when he starts his song to stop the Robo-Bear, the Super Bravery Badge can be seen on its post, even though it was stolen. In the next scene, the Robo-Bear is carrying it.
  • The position of the badges on Blaze's hat and its orientation repeatedly change throughout the episode.
  • In the opening scene, Stripes and Starla already have their respective badges on their hats even though they haven't earned them yet. The next time they're seen, they don't have them.
  • When AJ says, "Try another one, Blaze!" he moves and the mountain climbing badge can be seen on his sash despite not earning it until later.
  • When Gabby unveils the badges, a trapdoor opens on the stage to let them out, but when the robo-bear is about to steal the Super Bravery badge, the trapdoor is closed.
  • When Starla says "Hurry y’all, I’m slipping!" her Super Mountain Climbing badge is on her hat despite not earning it yet.
  • When Blaze starts playing another song in celebration of earning all three badges, the numbers on the amplifier’s volume knob have disappeared.
  • When Blaze transforms the volume knob is at 1, then when he starts playing it’s at 4 before going up to 11. Then when being congratulated, it’s at 1 again.
  • Twice in a row, when the camera zooms out to Starla yelling for help, Blaze’s hat has no badge on it.
  • The tops of Crusher’s exhaust pipes are missing when he says “What?!” upon seeing Blaze’s music is louder.
  • The first time Blaze salutes, he uses his right tire like everyone else, but in the rest of the episode he uses his left.
  • The flag is already raised in the opening shot but seconds later, Blaze raises it.
  • During the STEM song when Blaze and Stripes jump through a waterfall, AJ is missing.
