The Secret Saturdays

In a crossover that aired on Cartoon Network October 3, 2013 titled T.G.I.S., The Secret Saturdays come to Bellwood to investigate a rash of chupacabra attacks.

Uncle Grandpa

Ben, among other Cartoon Network characters, made a cameo watching an awards show hosted by Uncle Grandpa. Omniverse Ben, who did not speak, was annoyed by a lame joke that Uncle Grandpa made.

Opening

Lyrics

Ben 10!
He's a kid and he wants to have fun
But when you need a superhero, he gets the job done!
Ben 10!
With the device that he wears on his arm, he can change his shape and save the world from harm!
When trouble's taking place, he gets right in its face!
Ben 10!
When lives are on the line, it's hero time!
Ben 10!

Errors

  • In opening 1, 11-year-old Wildmutt has two Omnitrix symbols. In opening 2, the wrong Omnitrix symbol disappears, but the wrong brace remains.
  • In opening 1 and 2, 11-year-old Ripjaws has his 16-year old appearance except it lacks the belt.
  • In opening 2 and 3, 11-year-old Snare-oh has his 16-year-old appearance.
  • In opening 3, NRG's foot is under Crashhopper's.
  • In opening 3, 11-year-old Eye Guy has a green belt and lacks an Omnitrix symbol.

Trivia

  • Omniverse had the most seasons out of every Ben 10 show that has aired so far, with a total of 8 compared to the 3, 4, or 5 of the others.
  • Dwayne McDuffie and Glen Murakami had some thoughts about Omniverse when the crew sat down to plan the end of Ultimate Alien in September 2010. Dwayne had several pages generated in December 2010, but the real shape of the show came in April to May 2011.[MW 1]
  • Production was set up such that the art director, Derrick J. Wyatt, was involved in the story meetings. This was modeled after Transformers Animated.[DJW 3] In the previous Ben 10 shows, artists were not actively involved in the story planning.
  • The flashbacks happened during weekend trips.[DJW 4]
  • Omniverse was hand drawn for the most part, with digital color. Some more complicated elements like the vehicles were animated using CGI.[DJW 5]
  • Omniverse was trying to do more anime-styled over-the-top action. Derrick pushed the design team to get the most possible in the time they had.[DJW 6]
  • One of the crew's mandates from Cartoon Network was to change the look and tone of the series as much as they could in the short time they were given for development.[DJW 7]
    • The tone of Omniverse being closer to that of the original series was an executive mandate due to the fact that, globally, the original series apparently does the best ratings-wise.[DJW 8]
  • Prior to the series premiere, Omniverse was only set to run for four seasons.[DJW 9] It was later renewed for two more seasons twice, bringing the total number of seasons to six[DJW 10] and then eight.[DJW 11]
    • Had the series continued past Season 8, the Negative 10 would have been brought back and the road trip set up in the finale would have been followed up on.[DJW 12] Omniverse ended after Season 8 because of ratings.[DR 1]
  • It took about six months to complete one episode of Omniverse.[DJW 13] Multiple directors worked on separate episodes at the same time, and they were staggered so a new episode could be started every week. However, the design team could only work on episode at a time. Omniverse's animation studios, Rough Draft Studios and Sunmin Animation, were in Korea. Animation was done overseas at the same time that pre-production and eventually post-production was done in the States.[DJW 14]
  • The matter of deciding which alien to use in which episode depended on which alien the crew thought of or were in the mood for at the time. However, there were also other factors such as who was in the voice cast of the episode or what kind of powers were needed for a specific story point.[DJW 15]
  • From the beginning, the crew had the idea for having Bumper Robinson voice Rook. But they did one day of casting where they tried out the voices for all the main cast.[DJW 21]
  • An ideal crossover with Omniverse that Derrick would have in mind would be with the 2011 Thundercats animated series.[DJW 22]
  • An earlier version of the Omniverse logo had a different font, and the "v" in the word had what looked to be the Omnitrix's interface at the bottom of it.[AC 1]
    • In the same promo, it is briefly shown on a poster that Ben's flashbacks were originally going to take place when he was 10, not 11.
  • During the early development of this show, it was decided from the get-go that 11-year-old Ben's aliens would all have green Omnitrix symbols[DJW 23] and that 16-year-old Ben's Omnitrix would not include an evolutionary feature.[DJW 24]
  • The square textures in the backgrounds were based on an idea Derrick had that Thomas Yamaoka created before he left to go work on Beware the Batman.[DJW 25]

Opening

  • New sound effects were added to the opening starting with Ben Again. These include the Omnitrix's activation sound and Upchuck, Crashhopper, and Rath's sounds.
  • The opening changed in Evil's Encore for Arc 4, Something Zombozo This Way Comes for Arc 5 (Galactic Monsters) and in Clyde Five, the opening was focused on Clyde Fife.
  • The opening gets an electric note in the background during the song, starting with Rook Tales.
  • In the UK, the opening is different than the USA one.
  • The 11-year-old versions of Grey Matter, Ripjaws, and Blitzwolfer, who have solely appeared in the intros, were not necessarily planned to appear in the series proper.[DJW 26]
