Added DiffLines:

* LongRunner: The original series had a clean 5 year run of 365 episodes before its cancelation. And that's not even counting the reruns that still continued afterwards.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: WordOfGod has it that Ragdoll (the production company behind the show) originally wanted to do a children's sitcom, aimed at the 7-9 age bracket, about bumbling space explorers, but a series of changes to the proposal eventually resulted in a kiddie show aimed at 1-3 year olds about huge baby-like creatures dressed up in spacey outfits who explore their own fanciful world.
