Notes[edit | edit source]

Thunder Mask Title.jpg

  • This show was originally going to be an adaptation of the Osamu Tezuka manga Majin Garon
  • There are two reasons why the show became missing in the book Ishiro Honda master of monsters there were legal issues that went on with the series and the agreement was that the episodes were not allowed to be rebroadcast or Tezuka hated the show so much he ordered the episodes to be destroyed
    • However, people can still watch the episodes that are still available on YouTube.
