Added DiffLines:

* DuelingDubs:
** There's both a US and UK dub of the show. Besides some light changes to the voice cast, the US changes the content of some episodes to better suit educational standards. This causes some rather inconsistent episode durations, some even shooting well over the usual 30-minute lengths.
** There's two Portogues dubs; one that aired in Brazil, and one that aired in parts of Europe.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: While the UK version of the show is well-archived despite the abundance of episodes, the US dub has largely been lost. Only a handful of episodes can be found online, and it's unknown who's in possession of the master tapes.
