Super Pro Decathlon was the only new title released by INTV Corp. not done by one of the original Mattel Electronics programmers. Scott Robitelle was a friend of Dave Warhol's who had done the hardware design of the development systems used by Realtime Associates. Dave gave him a shot at designing a game. (A later game programmed by Scott, Choplifter! was never finished.)

Super Pro Decathlon was timed for release with the 1988 Summer Olympics.

FUN FACT: For the title screen music, Dave Warhol recycled the fanfare he wrote for the unreleased Mattel Electronics cartridge Go For The Gold.

FUN FACT:  INTV used the successful "Super Pro" designation, despite the fact there are no professional decathlon competitions.
