Trivia

Galactor's (Zoltar in Battle of the Planets (1978)) status as a hermaphrodite was never acknowledged in "G-Force" because Turner Broadcasting opted not to dub the episodes relating to this plot development. The story line involving Dirk Daring (Jô Asakura from Gatchaman (1972) and Jason from Battle of the Planets (1978)) suffering from terminal brain damage is left intact, but since Gatchaman episodes 102-105 were not dubbed, this plot development does not receive an ending. One of the episodes that was skipped in both Battle of the Planets and G-Force, was episode 81, which features the revelation that the parents of Dirk Daring were killed by Galactor. See more »

Some loved it, some hated it
13 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

I remember being about 11 and talking with my friends about about our favorite cartoons during the recess, and like I said before some loved it some hated it, obviously I was one of the followers. Even though it was an 80s cartoon it seemed like it tried to represent the 70s, when our heroes were not in action. My favorite character was Dirk, but they were all great, always fighting against Gallactor's lieutenants, and their soldiers, the costumes were great! One thing that I have to admit was pretty annoying was the background music, it didnt changed in romantic scenes, nor action, nor drama nor any, but besides that everything was more than O.K. Since I didnt saw the cartoon in English some names may not be the original ones, but we had Ace, the leather, Dirk, Agi, Pee Wee, and Auti (the Phoenix's pilot) Gallactor a super villain and of course Dr. Brilliant Mind (at least that was the translation).

I only saw the final episode once and sadly all I can remember is... (you may not want to keep reading since I will reveal the same of the real hero and Gallactor's identity) ...that Dirk was the one who unmasked Gallactor and it was like pretty weird he explodes and becomes one with Computor (the prime evil one).

Dont you just hate when you happen to find a re-run on t.v. and it is ALWAYS the same one? I've seen the first episode like 15 times.

Why cant we see again cartoons like this one, or Defenders of the Earth, He-Man, Bravestarr, Thundarr the Barbarian, Kidd Video, and all of those 80s cartoons lots of us grew up with...
