* MissingEpisode - All of the episodes were released on VHS...except for the last two, "Trash Island" and "Long Weekend." Because there were 3 episodes on each video, and a total of 8 videos, they only make up 24 of the 26 episodes; those two got left out. Since the show wasn't ever rerun in syndication/cable, few people know about the last two episodes; they're left off of most episode guides, and fans have even debated their very existence. Because the entire series has been rerun in Russia, [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes these two episodes have surfaced online]]...but only in Russian.
