Bonus Features


  • As of the series not being in fullscreen 4:3 in US DVD releases anymore after 2013, the other five episodes from the Nitrogen era are cropped in widescreen 16:9.
  • This is the second US DVD to feature episodes from the Nitrogen era, and the Arc Productions era together. The first was Santa's Little Engine. It's also the first US DVD to have the Nitrogen era episodes narrated by Michael Brandon insted of being renarrated by Mark Moraghan.
  • This episode contained the episode Wild Water Rescue (hence the DVD's name) and it finally aired on TV in the US on March 15, 2018 after 3 years since the DVD release.
