The "Genus" is led by a "humanoid manifestation" named Scopes.

Trivia

The name of the villain Scopes is likely a reference to the defendant in the Scopes Trial which concerned the teaching of evolution in public schools.

There are many differences between the series and the movie:

  • While General Woodman had a balding hairline in the movie, he had a full head of hair in the series.
  • Deke and Danny Donald appear in the series, but Danny is renamed Derek.
  • Despite appearing in the movie, Governor Lewis does not appear in the series.
  • Wayne's surname is changed from Grey to Green.
  • Ira likes cooking as it is a form of science.
  • Ira wished that he was born to scientist parents.
  • General Woodman's hair was dyed blue in "General Disorder".
  • The romance between Ira and Allison as seen in the movie is ignored in the series.
  • In the first episode when the gang is watching the news and they see themselves destroying the giant alien from the movie, they are wearing different clothes, and Deke and Danny are not present.
  • Harry Block's hair is long and braided into large cornrows, rather than short in the movie.
