Trivia: The Mystery of Mamo
  • Dueling Dubs: On the short-list of anime films with the most English dubs made (often attributed as #1). First, Toho made a dub in 1979 to show in trans-Pacific flights on Japan Airlines. Next, Streamline Pictures dubbed it in 95. Manga Entertainment made its own dub in 96. Finally, Pioneer/Geneon redubbed the film in 2003. Rather than try a dub of its own, Discotek Media simply and wisely collected all four dubs onto its own release (actually quite a feat, since the Toho dub had to be cobbled together from various extant incomplete copies and then digitally cleaned up to make it presentable, and the Manga UK dub had a very limited release to the point that no one knew if decent materials for it even existed).
  • Franchise-Driven Retitling: In Japan, The Mystery of Mamo was originally titled Lupin III, but with two television series, a live-action film, and another movie on the way, they had to retitle it to distinguish what the movie was. It is now officially known as Lupin III: Lupin vs. the Clones.
