About Battle of the Planets (U.S.):

In 1978, when game show producer Sandy Frank licensed Kagaku Ninja-tai Gatchaman, he took 85 of the 105 episodes and rebadged the series Battle of the Planets to capitalize on the '70s sci-fi craze (all thanks to 1977's Star Wars). To meet U.S. TV standards, Sandy Frank had nearly all of the series' most violent parts edited out. To fill in the gaps, Hanna-Barbera was commissioned to produce new animated footage featuring 7-Zark-7, the team's mascot robot and the show's narrator. Sandy Frank reportedly spent US$1 million on bringing the series to U.S. television.
