The first season was serialized and followed the original comic strip remarkably faithfully. After the [[ExecutiveMeddling network complained]] that the serial was [[ViewersAreMorons too difficult for kids to follow,]] the second season consisted of standalone episodes, and a TeamPet was added, Gremlin the dragon. Older viewers are likely to prefer the serialized episodes, while younger viewers are likely to prefer the later, more simply-plotted standalones.

''Flash Gordon'' (also known as ''The Adventures of Flash Gordon'' and even ''The New Adventures of Flash Gordon'') was an adaptation of the comic strip ''ComicStrip/FlashGordon'' made in the 1970s by {{Filmation}}, the people who did ''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries''. Perhaps best described as a children's version of a sketchy [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SP2CsHNHd8 rock album cover]] come to life, with [[PettingZooPeople lion-men]] instead of [[Film/NapoleonDynamite ligers]].

* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: If the legends are true, both Azura and Ming are centuries old. Ming claims to be immortal; he does at least appear to be very long-lived.

* WeAREStrugglingTogether: This is why Ming isn't overthrown; the races of Mongo are busy fighting amongst themselves.
