** The 1965 series had the cheap 1993 Canadian redub done, but even in the original dub, there were several cuts done by the Americans which are NOT present in other dubs such as the Spanish dub (done around the same time as the English dub), and the German/Italian dub (done in the late 70s, basically straight dubs from the original Japanese with no cuts). The 1966 Leo the Lion series suffered from a poor English dub released nearly two decades later, while German and Italian dubs are fairly up to par with the 1965 series.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Operative until the late 90's. NBC's license for the original series lapsed in 1978, shortly after Tezuka's Mushi Pro studio went under. So for nearly two decades, the only way to see any of the series was through ''very'' early awful-quality VHS tapes, and even then it was just a handful of the 52 episodes produced. The rights to this series along with the rest of Mushi's properites were tied up in court for pretty much the entirety of the 80's. Through what can best be described as pure luck, Right Stuf which already had the rights to ''Anime/AstroBoy'' managed to license this series and release it in its entirety.
