  • Edited for Syndication:
    • The syndication version of the series (for both international broadcast and DVD releases) features many changes done to the original version. The most significative ones are changing the Chilean slang for expressions in a neutral language and changing some of the music (due to licensing issues).
    • Advertisement:
    • The syndication version of season one also features the graphics and continuity used in season two and afterwards, and the intro to the Calcetín con Rombos Man segments introduced from season two.
    • Also, the Mexican channel Once TV made further edits to several episodes, removing some rude language as well as references to El Chavo del ocho and songs performed by Mexican artists.
    • Note that this doesn't apply to full episodes uploaded at the show's official YouTube channel, as that episodes belong to the original version, instead of the syndication one.
