** The materials given to ADV for their 2004 DVD releases were sourced from cine tapes in extremely poor mono quality, especially noticeable with the audio, which sounded extremely muffled, with plenty of hiss, sibilance, and pops. The materials also didn't include episode 67 at all for some reason. All this, despite the fact that much nicer remastered [=DVDs=] were being released in Japan at the time. ADV claimed these were the only materials that Toei would give them, and they were the exact same 16mm masters used by DiC that had been stored in their warehouse for almost a decade.

** Ditto for Tracey Hoyt as the same character in the DiC dub. Apparently, Roland Parliament taught her how to do a Russian accent during the recording session.

* NoDubForYou: Was originally the case with the uncut versions of the first two seasons. When Creator/ADVFilms released the uncut episodes in 2003, both seasons lacked an English dub (which was a rarity for them), due to the show being sub-licensed from DiC, the producers of the original edited dub. When Creator/VizMedia acquired the license to those seasons (along with the later 3 seasons, and movies, and specials), 11 years later in 2014, they released the uncut versions of these episodes with an all-new English dub recorded by Creator/{{Studiopolis}}.

** [[UpToEleven Almost the entire main cast]] was replaced in the '90s English dub, mostly due to the show repeatedly stopping production for years at a time. For the main cast alone: Tracey Moore originated the role of Serena/Sailor Moon for the first 11 episodes before Terri Hawkes took over. Moore would only return sporadically voicing her in episode 15 and 21 before Hawkes completely took over the role for the remainder of the first season, all of season 2, and the three movies. Then when it came time to dub season 3 and 4, Hawkes was on maternity leave and Linda Ballatyne took over for the remainder. Then for Darien, the role started off with Creator/RinoRomano, who was then replaced by Toby Procter starting in episode 11. After Procter left Optimum due to a pay dispute, Vince Corazza (who had previously voiced Allen) took over for the final 17 episodes of ''R''. Sailor Mercury was originally voiced by Karen Bernstein for the DiC episodes but replaced by Lisa Balkan for the third and fourth season. Likewise Stephanie Morgenstern voiced Sailor Venus for season 1 and 2, and was voiced by Creator/EmilieClaireBarlow for season 3 and 4. Barlow would also fill in for Katie Griffin, the main voice actress for Sailor Mars for the last 17 episodes of R as Katie was away filming a movie, though Griffin returned for the remainder of the dub. Lastly Tracey Hoyt was the original voice of Rini but was replaced by Creator/StephanieBeard for season 3 and 4. Susan Roman who voiced Sailor Jupiter was the only one of the main cast to stay on for all 159 dub episodes and the movies.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Fox Kids UK picked up Sailor Moon, alongside ''{{Digimon|Adventure}}'', and got to the end of R just as ''Digimon Tamers'' was wrapping. In spite of teasing the third season (and ''[[Anime/DigimonFrontier Digimon's Fourth]]''), neither aired on UK Television. ''Digimon Frontier'' finally got an airing of the sorts on Amazon's Video On Demand service in 2015 but Sailor Moon doesn't even have a UK distributor (MVM having famously almost going bankrupt as a result of a botched release that had the DiC version but not Viz's subtitled version nor Pioneer's unedited versions of S and ''[=SuperS=]''. Oh, you can buy official UK ''Sailor Moon'' merch including mugs and posters (from GB Eye), but if you want to watch the show, you need to import it.

** The infamous {{WesternAnimation/Toonmakers|SailorMoon}} produced live-action/American animated pilot that Toei passed on in favor of the English dub by Creator/DiC Entertainment.

** According to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEXqoPgbH0c#t=01m32s this promotional video]], these were the tentative dub names. An early English Kodansha website for Sailor Moon [[https://groups.google.com/forum/#!search/sailor$20moon$20%22celeste%22/rec.arts.anime/Y8A4lwb6Gmw/R-6up51jFzwJ had an alternative set of localized names]] that were used at some other points in development of the DiC dub. Usagi was called "Celeste", Makoto was to be "Maggie", Minako would be "Monica", and Mamoru would have the name "Mark". Only "Amy" and "Rae" (later spelled as "Raye") were retained from the second listing of names. Naru and Motoki were also named "Nadine" and "Michael". Also, DiC's first promo video featured yet another set of English localized names: Victoria (Usagi), Blue (Ami), Dana (Rei), Sara (Makoto), and Carrie (Minako).

** When Creator/CarlMacek was originally tapped to work on DiC's dub, he actually wanted to embrace the show's Japanese origins, feeling it was inherent to its themes and identity. He wanted to keep the Tokyo setting (which DiC did eventually revert to as well), and didn't want to change any character names. DiC was not interested in this, and Macek's replacement, Fred Ladd, turned in a far more localized adaptation.

* TranslationCorrection: The Franchise/RoboCop joke in Sailor Mercury's visor had a misspelling of "innocent" and the wrong name (Mash_ instead of J. Smith); this was fixed in the original North American dub.

** With Viz creating a TruerToTheText uncut redub, the original 90s dub once made available on TV and DVD is now being sought-after. Viz is even taking original dub clips off Creator/YouTube.
