This series was originally planned to be an adaptation of Mirai robo Daltanias (1979). But Toei Animation accidentally sent tapes of Hyakujû-ô Goraion (1981) to World Events Productions. The producers found that they liked "Go lion" better and adapted it into "Voltron". Interestingly, "Daltanias" included every type of robot that was planned from a series dubbed for Voltron - a lion one like "Go lion" (first season), a vehicle one like Kikô Kantai dairugger XV (1982) (second season), and a human-looking fighter from Kosoku Denjin Albegas (1983) (like the planned-but-unreleased third season.

Drule Commander Malvor and Mongo are identical but have different voices. In Dairugger XV, they are the same character. A similar error happened with Commander Zabbar. This time, two completely different characters (who didn't resemble each other much) were given the same name and the same voice. See more »

Another one of my favorite cartoons growing up that I still enjoy immensely. It's also my 2nd favorite anime, next to Sailor Moon. I remember the first time I stumbled across this show. I was in a rental store & I saw a video of it. I got it without reading the back because I thought it looked cool(as I often did when I was a kid), & after watching the 4 episodes on that tape was instantly hooked. Later I enjoyed watching it on Toonami & the CGI sequel(which I loved just as much) somewhere else. Now I own the original on DVD(except for the Black Lion collection), & have 3 tapes of the CGI series & watch them a lot(as I do with only my favorite cartoons now, unless it's something at least one of my family enjoys). Okay, so it's the most repetitive of my favorite shows, but there was a LOT under the surface. The comedy was funny, the characters & plots were interesting. My favorite was Lance. I thought his smart-alecky remarks were hilarious The animation wasn't the best, but it got the job done, & the designs made up for it. The Robeasts are the coolest giant monsters I have seen in an anime. There are little goofs, but nearly all of them were in the animation & not the plot. But this is still one of the very best cartoons around. BOTTOM LINE: ***** - This & Voltron: The Third Dimension combine to form the 7th best cartoon ever.
