** The 30th episode has a scene where Build Typhoon coerces Build Boy into getting back to work by sitting in front of him and threatening to commit harikiri. Because references to suicide obviously won't fly in a children's show, the English dub instead has the dialogue altered so that Heavy Load was blocking Wedge's path and refusing to budge until he stopped slacking.

** In the 11th episode, Wrecker Hook (known as Two-Line in the English dub) boasts about how the drivers of the vehicles he tows will be punished for their sins by God. The English dub changes it to Two-Line being obsessed with inforcing traffic laws because many consider it taboo to discuss religious concepts in children's shows.

** I dunno, [[http://tfwiki.net/w2/images2/0/00/T-AI-colorsheet.jpg that's a pretty old and developed loli]]. She just looks like a kid because she's the same ''size'' as the kid characters and doesn't have a very adult voice, either.
