ENGLISH DUBBED VERSIONS

Whilst most fans are familiar with the "BATTLE OF THE PLANETS", "G-FORCE", "EAGLE RIDERS" and "GATCHAMAN" dubs, there are other less-known, alternative variations.

The earliest translations are the pilot and alternative versions of
"BATTLE OF THE PLANETS". These episodes vary from their versions in the regular "BATTLE OF THE PLANETS" syndication package, with different titles/credits, different content, (extra scenes or minus shots of Z-Zark-7), and contain only music cues scored by Bob Sakuma for "GATCHAMAN", (rather than Hoyt Curtin music scored for "BATTLE OF THE PLANETS").

Another translation is
"THE GUTMAN", although little is known of its history:
- it may have been an early English language international version dubbed by Tatsunoko Productions-Yomiko, possibly for sale to countries outside of a contract with Sandy Frank;
- it may have been produced only for broadcast in the Philipines, where Japanese animnation is often broadcast with basic English translations;
- Sandy Frank may have offered it as an alternative to
"BATTLE OF THE PLANETS"
It seems to have been produced or broadcast between 1979 - 1986.

Please note: the series is listed above using the episode order currently used by Sandy Frank Film Syndication based on the original Japanese episode order, (minus the 20 Japanese episodes deleted from the original package); it is not the order followed by Gallerie Films when they translated the series into English. Viewed in this manner, the series retains minor "GATCHAMAN" continuity but has major lapses in the English script. There are a variety of different episode orders of the series, often varying according to the region or country the series was viewed in; for more information, please click here.
