|Behind the scenes|
The day after Elfangor gave the Animorphs the ability to morph and told about the Yeerk invasion, and after Tobias arrived with news about morphing Dude, Jake decided to experiement with morphing. He decided to morph the most available animal, which turned out to be Homer.
- Like the rest of Jake's family, Homer was not able to be evacuated to the Hork-Bajir valley by the Animorphs.
- Homer always was Jake's favorite morph.
