Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The DVD of Godzilla: The Series had all 40 episodes in chronological order instead of broadcast order and two episodes that were originally unaired on TV and appear in it for the first time anywhere.
  • Early releases of the DVD set Pop Culture Bento Box accidentally omitted one of its four films, The Little Prince and the Eight-Headed Dragon.
  • Like Shout! Factory's 2012 DVD release of Ultraseven, Mill Creek Entertainment's 2019 Blu-ray release of the series is missing episode 12, "From Another Planet with Love", which has been under a self-imposed ban by Tsuburaya Productions since 1970. The villainous aliens in this episode, Alien Spell, were labeled as "Hibaku Seijin" ("A-Bomb Survivor Aliens") in some supplementary materials such as books and trading cards, reflecting their origin from a planet devastated by nuclear war. They also possessed keloid scars. Survivors of the 1945 atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, known as hibakusha, protested the characters and the episode, leading to its withdrawal. However, it was dubbed into English by both the University of Hawaii and Cinar.
