Trivia / Info:

  • Originally, Voltron danced to the original song Work It Out on the Floor as performed by Seth Green with music by Michael Suby. However, due to possible legal issues the music was changed, although Work It Out on the Floor can still be heard under the audio commentary track on the DVD. Some lyrics from Work It Out on the Floor were re-integrated into the song that is on the skit in current TV and DVD releases.
  • Work It Out on the Floor is a parody of DMX's "Get It on the Floor".
  • The Voltron puppet was made of foam.
  • The Robeast used in this sketch was Scorpious. The figure was destroyed (actually cut apart) for this segment.
  • The two animators in charge of the dance-off are big fans of You Got Served.
  • Only one animator took control of each side of the dance-off.
  • In the video game Overwatch, the character D.Va uses Voltron's dance as an emote for the game's first anniversary.
  • This segment was included on the DVD release for "Voltron: Defender of the Universe - Vol 1" as a special feature.
