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 »

A mixed bag, and a pretty poor mix at that.
13 December 2003 | by (Xanadu) – See all my reviews

This was the second attempt at westernizing Kagaku Ninja Tai Gatchaman, aka Gatchaman. The first was the fun, but toned down Battle of the Planets. This time, Ted Turner's people got Fred Wolf to do it, with some improvements, but even more detriments.

The series was more faithful to the original Gatchaman storylines; everything takes place on Earth, Galactor (Berg Katse/Zoltar) was androgynous, Dirk's (Joe/Jason) family were killed by Galctor's men, and Pee-Wee (Jinpei/Keeyop) was human. Most of the original action was shown, with only the most extreme violence edited. The Hoyt Curtain music was replaced with a repetitive and headache-inducing mix. The names were made even more childish: Ace Goodheart, Dirk Daring, Pee-Wee, Hooty; at least Agatha June was close to the original (Jun).

While the stories were better and the translation more faithful, the voice work was sub-standard. The compression needed to match the Japanese lip movements made everything seemed rushed and the voice artists brought little to the production.

Ultimately, the series was a failure, as it was removed after only airing 13 of 85 episodes. It later reappeared on the Cartoon Netwok, where it was run at least twice, with all 85 episodes broadcast. Most fans, including this one, generally deem it to be worse than Battle of the Planets. If the more faithful story could have been combined with the Battle of the Planets voice work and music, then Gatchaman would have made a much better transition to America. Either way, the ending was still missing.
