Truck or Treat! Trivia

S2E3 Monster Machines catch up with Crusher

October 31: Halloween
After Blaze of Glory and Knight Riders
Before Monster Machine Christmas


  • This marks the second time Blazing Speed is not used at all after Zeg and the Egg.
  • This is the first episode where a holiday is celebrated, in this case, Halloween.
  • This is the first episode to take place at night, as well as the first time nighttime occurs.
  • What Blaze and his friends dressed as:
    • Blaze - Knight
    • AJ - Superhero
    • Gabby - Lion
    • Stripes - Pirate
    • Starla - Witch
    • Darington - Octopus
    • Zeg - King
  • This is the second episode to feature a countdown. A countdown previously occurred in The Bouncy Tires.
  • This marks the last hearing of Hit The Road to date.
  • This is only the second time Blaze’s foglights were lit since The Driving Force.
  • Blaze’s knight costume will reappear in Knight Riders and Knighty Knights.
  • The moon is full, and is tinted gold indicating a harvest moon. In real life, it’s a rare phenomenon for a full moon on Halloween, happening every 19-20 years, while a harvest moon occurs normally in August or September.
  • Starla is seen without her cowgirl hat for the entire episode again, following Truck Rangers.
  • Some of the Monster Machines’ costumes are references to future episodes:

Running Gags

  • Crusher getting scared by a shadow of what he thinks is a monster.
  • Pickle changing his costume.


  • When Blaze says "We came, we sawed, we conquered" after destroying Crusher's Robo-Pumpkin Blaster and carving a real pumpkin, it is a reference to Julius Caesar's famous line "Veni, vidi, vici", which is Latin for "I came, I saw, I conquer".
  • "Truck or treat" is a pun on the Halloween term, "trick or treat".


  • When Crusher activates the Halloween candy stealer, it sucks up Darington's candy bucket (the bucket with candy corn on it). After Crusher says "I want more candy!", it sucks up the same bucket again.
  • There were six candy buckets (one for Blaze and each of his friends), but the Halloween candy stealer sucks them up more than five times, as if there were much more candy than that.
    • Therefor, the Halloween candy stealer shouldn't have exploded and sent the candy flying after all six buckets were sucked up.
  • When Crusher says "I want that candy!", Blaze's foglights are not lit.
  • When Blaze’s friends try out making shadows, the light from Blaze’s foglights appear to be coming from his eyes, where a truck’s headlights go in real life. In the next shot, it’s coming from the right position.
