Trivia

Around 1999, it was learned that World Events Productions, Inc. (which owns the English adaptation of "Golion" under the name, "Voltron: Defender of the Universe") bought the rights of Golion from Toei Animation Co., the famous Japanese animation studio that created. This means that World Events has both the rights to the English adaptation and its original series, very unusual for a non-Japanese distributor. See more »

Goofs

In order to activate the Lions, each team member had to insert a special key. In many instances when Chief is starting the Golion forming sequence, his key can still be seen on his tunic, but then is also seen on the panel of his lion, and then moves in the same way - left to right - as it already did when first being used to activate the Black Lion.

the original version of Lion Voltron
24 November 2001 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Hyakuju O Go-Lion is the original anime series that Lion Voltron was dubbed from. In Voltron, there were quite a few changes from Golion though, such as violent scenes removed, character names changed, different voice actors, etc.

Golion is certainly quite violent at times, but it's an enjoyable series, even if I couldn't understand what was being said, lol.

Finding Golion episodes are hard to find, so if you do come across some, don't hesitate to pick it up.
