Notes:
  • First and last appearance of Soto.
  • Soto is named after director Alex Soto.
  • Soto and the Alien Dog were created specifically for the show.
  • One of the girls Beast Boy flirted with was later seen at H.I.V.E. Academy in "Deception", laughing at Cyborg's initiation. She also appeared in the horror movie in "Fear Itself".
  • Soto is the name of the warehouse in "Sisters", where the party took place.
  • Writer and story editor Rob Hoegee on writing Beast Boy: "As any proud parent will say, I love them all. But I think I have more an affinity for Beast Boy. Not that I exactly relate to him, but I think in a lot of ways, I do. Everyone always roots for the underdog. Beast Boy on our team certainly is. I think a lot of the aspects of Beast Boy’s character remind me of my own adolescence. And as much as we like to use Beast Boy as the comic relief and the butt of the jokes, I think there really is a lot of heart to him. A lot of strength. In the Beast Boy episodes I’ve done, I’ve tried to find that in there.”
