A big messFan Road Rover Mission Control:

Words. Sayings. Names. Things. Cries. They are all part of the English language. But they are also an important part of Road Rovers. Listed here are a collection of different areas where the Rovers have excelled or even failed in regards to speech. You can choose from the following categories:

All Mixed Up
Nameless Rover

Hi Karate

Butchery: In almost every episode Exile makes a mockery of the English language. It's not on purpose, it is just his thick accent. Here are all the words Exile has mispronounced:

From "Let's Hit The Road"
"Funski" - Should to be Fun

All mixed up: In most of the episodes, Exile will say a famous saying (usually an American based one) but not exactly how it was originally meant to be said (he sometimes mixes two or more sayings together) Here is a list of all the famous sayings he has gotten wrong:

"Yippee Keyo Keyf!" - Should to be "Yippee Kia Ay" (Any cowboys reading this please forgive my spelling)
"April day! April day! We're going down!!!" - Should to be "May day!" (You'd figure a Russian would know this one)

"The old switcherooski" - Should to be "The old switcheroo"

From "Still A Few Bugs In The System"

From "From Gold and Retrievers"
"I may toss my cookies which are crumbling" - Should be "I may toss my cookies"

From "Take Me To Your Leader"

Ooops!: Even though Rovers is made by some of the most talented people in the business, sometimes things get by quality control. Characters accidently change color, are wearing the wrong clothes, etc. Pointing out such mistakes doesn't degrade the show just but makes it human. Here is a list of some of the mistakes found in the series:

From "The Dog That Knew Too Much"
After the Rovers rescue Sport from the motorcycle gang everyone listens to him talk. In the front of the Street Rover are Colleen and Hunter while Blitz sits in the back seat. If you look at Blitz carefully you will notice he has the coloring/markings of Hunter.

From "Gold And Retreivers "
From Varakorn Ungvichian:
"Hunter says the Amazon is the biggest river in the world. No no no, the Nile is the biggest river in the world."

From "Let's Hit The Road "
From Varakorn Ungvichian:
"Before Blitz was chosen, when it just shows his head, while he's getting ready to beat up the burglar in the car, below his collar is the color silver, as if he has his Road Rover uniform on."

From "Storm From The Pacific "
From Varakorn Ungvichian:
"Storm had to wait until the satellite was in place before he could blow up the US cities, but Shag was able to keep Storm busy for a while by shooting close to Storm's ship, without having to wait for the satellite to be in place."

From "Reigning Cats and Dogs "
From Varakorn Ungvichian:
"Confused on how the Master was able to bring the Rovers back. Does HE have a time machine of his own?!"

From "Gold And Retrievers "
From Varakorn Ungvichian:
"How did the boy know where Blitz was standing when he said he was the weird one."

From "Storm From The Pacific "
From Varakorn Ungvichian:
"When Blitz threw the ball, Hunter ran to get the ball, and on the way back he somehow erased the trail of fire he left when he ran to get the ball."

From "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie "
From Varakorn Ungvichian:
"Did anyone notice that while Hunter is coughing in the gas cloud, he puts his hands to his hips? And then, awhile later he puts his hands out in front of him and acts surprised when the statue isn't there? Now is Hunter really that slow and simple-minded that he didn't notice the statue was gone when he could put two hands on his hips?"

From "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie "
From Varakorn Ungvichian:
"Anyone else wondering why the vehicle the dinosaur smashed could still work?"

From "The Dog That Knew Too Much "
From Varakorn Ungvichian:
"Just secs after coming out of the trans-mografier, sport seemed to pull his armor just like the way you'd pull a shirt, AND THE ARMOR WARPED ALONG WITH HIS PULLING MOVEMENTS."

From "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie "
From Varakorn Ungvichian:
"If you break open an egg before it's ready to hatch, (like Parvo did) the animal inside is not gonna be alive."

From "Where Rovers Dare "
From Dianne:
"You know the scene when Hunter and Colleen was heading for the vehicle Exile and Shag was in? If you look really closely, Hunter suddenly transforms into Colleen, and Colleen transforms into Hunter, then they transform back. It's a freaky animation mistake. You have to look really closely. Try slow mo on your vcr."

From "Where Rovers Dare "
From Sue:
"When the rebel is really jumpy and the wolves run by the building. When the Rovers run by, Blitz has a tail. He's not suppose to, he's a doberman. Just thought you might like to know. Love the sight!!!"

From "Let's Hit The Road "
From Padraig O Ruanai:
"You know how there was a hunter/blitz mixup in The Dog Who Knew Too Much? The same mistake was made in Let's Hit The Road. When they say To the Power of the Pack, just before that, it looks from behind the Rovers, and Hunter (with Blitz's ears) is standing on Colleens left side, but when it looks at them from the front, Hunter is standing on Colleen's right side and Blitz is on Colleen's left side!"

From "Take me to your leader "
From Andy:
"All the Rovers are asleep in the kennel but when Storm's ship comes down and the Rovers are all escorted out of their owners quarters!"

From "Take me to your leader "
From Cosmic Dave South:
"It was night (and the moon was in almost the EXACT same position in the sky) in Washington DC, London, Moscow, Geneva, AND Berlin. This is, needless to say, impossible! As a side note, it may actually be possible for it to be night in all of the Western European cities, a difference of a few miles is the difference between a partial and total lunar eclipse. This is, however, a minor point... Since any one of the world leaders setting off the nukes would prompt immediate retaliation from everybody ELSE, and have the same result."

From "Let's Hit The Road"
From Andy:
"The Rovers have been told that they may not all return alive. Hunter says "Errr...cheque please!" just before they all run off to the transdogmafier again. But just after Hunter says his line, there is an ugly black line that appears at the base of his muzzle."

From "Reigning Cats And Dogs"
From Gerhard Naude:
"During the Muzzle chase scene in "Reigning Cats And Dogs", before Parvo gets into the truck he has both human arms and legs. When he jumps out of the truck before the jeep smashes into it, he suddenly has a cyborg arm and leg. Either the animators made a mistake or the truck tried to assimilate Parvo."
