The show Battle of the Planets was marketed to capitalize on the momentum created by Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope
(1977), released in the prior year. The words Battle (instead of War) and Planets (instead of Star) are plays on that theme. The character 7-Zark-7 was a play on "droid" names created in "Star Wars", that utilized letters and numbers, such as C3PO and R2D2. See more
