** In ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'' replaces everyone from the cast... [[RoleReprisal except]] [[Creator/KotonoMitsuishi Usagi]]. And a few voice actors ''did'' die when ''Crystal'' premiered.

* TheOtherDarrin: [[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. Tracey Moore would only return sporadically voicing her in episode 15 and 21 before Terri 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, Terri 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. Vince Corazza (who had previously voiced Allen) took over for the final 17 episodes of Sailor Moon R onward due to Toby's pay dispute with Optimum. 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.

** The European Spanish dub had a long gap between the dubbing of [=SuperS=] and Star, leading to a different company handling the Stars dub. This also led to most of the cast being replaced due to the original actors being hard to contact due to the length of time. Only Sailor Mars, played by Creator/PepaAgudo, retained the same actress.

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

** Arguably the same with Creator/VeronicaTaylor. Sailor Pluto is the first major anime role she landed after moving to Los Angeles, following years of declining anime work in New York, where she once made her name as a top anime voice actress in the late 90s/early 2000s.

* ChannelHop: In the US, the first dub went from daily syndication, to the Creator/USANetwork, and then to Creator/CartoonNetwork and Creator/{{Toonami}}.



* 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 Frountier'' finally got an airing of the sorts on Amaon'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.

** Also, the original dub failed in syndication, so it moved over to the Creator/USANetwork's ''Action Extreme Team'' block- only to be dumped after about a year thanks to USA's new management deciding to eliminate cartoons to appeal to a more "upscale" demographic, leading Cartoon Network to pick it up.



** Optimum Productions, a Toronto-based dubbing company, was selected to record the dub, however they ran into issues early on. Tracey Moore, the original ADR director and voice of Sailor Moon, left the series after 13 episode due to creative differences and was replaced with Roland Parliament, who voiced Melvin Taylor, as ADR Director and Terri Hawkes as Sailor Moon's voice. Production was so far behind schedule at the time. Parliament worked long hours into the night, slept at the studio, and became ill during production. He also had issues with [=DiC=] executives.

** It was cancelled on a cliffhangar and was unable to air until 1997 when YTV and Irwin Toy paid to fund more episodes to give it some closure, with Pioneer funding dubs for the movies. After Parliament was fired over creative differences with Optimum, John Stocker replaced Parliament and was also fired. Fred Ladd was also replaced with writers at Optimum.

** Actually airing the dub in America also proved to be difficult- an attempt to syndicate daily failed, so they moved over to the Creator/USANetwork on cable. Who then dumped the show about a year after along with all their other cartoons (in an attempt to go "upscale"). Thankfully, Creator/CartoonNetwork and Creator/{{Toonami}} stepped in, giving it a stable home.

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: ''Sailor Moon'' was completely unavailable worldwide outside Japan for close to a decade due to legal problems, the details of which are still speculated (some think it had to do with ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'', or contract issues with Creator/NaokoTakeuchi). Toei Animation and Kodansha refused to renew any ''Sailor Moon'' licenses worldwide beginning in 2003, which forced Creator/ADVFilms (who had the US home video license to the first two seasons at the time) to hastily release box sets of the show sub-only before it expired. This also prevented the final season, ''Sailor Moon Sailor Stars'', from seeing the light of day in North America at all. Both Toei Animation and Kodansha began re-licensing the series worldwide in 2010, with the entire manga being re-released in English beginning in 2011 (courtesy of Kodansha Comics USA), and the anime (including the never-released-in-America ''Sailor Stars'') in 2014 (courtesy of Creator/VizMedia), both with brand new localizations, along with ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal''.
