TNT Episodes

Ultra 7 American English

In 1985, Turner Program Services commissioned Cinar to dub all 49 episodes for run in syndication. [1] Cinar produced episodes featured new opening and closing credits, eyecatches, and even new episode names. After failing to sell it to local and national stations, Turner put the tapes back into their vaults until 1994, when Ultra Seven was selected for broadcast on the Toons 'Till Noon and MonsterVision blocks on TNT. The Toons 'Till Noon broadcasts received substantially heavy editing to make them suitable for the time slot, while the MonsterVision broadcasts were left completely uncut. Episodes 5-7 were missing, but instead of paying Cinar for the missing episodes, they aired all the tapes they had already. When the contract expired between Tsuburaya, Cinar, and Turner, all materials (film, tapes, audio masters) reverted to, and were collected by Tsuburaya.

Notes

  • Ultra Seven and the original Ultraman have been the only two Ultra Series to have a remake of the series. Ultraman had 1 and Ultra Seven had 3 remakes.
    • Ultraman however had 4 movies on him.
  • One of few soundtracks of this series would be used again later in Ultraman Ace, Ultraman Leo, and Ultraman 80 series.
  • Ultra Seven has 2 banned episodes: From a Planet With Love (banned because Alien Spell resembled surviors of the atomic bombings of Japan in World War II), and Super Weapon R-1 (banned in 2011 because of the episode relating to the recent Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster).
    • Due in part to the ban, the 12th episode is not on the Region 1 DVD release by Shout! Factory. However, the recently banned 26th episode was released and can be seen on this set.
  • Ultra Seven was originally intended to be the last entry into the Ultra Series. It's immense popularity proved otherwise.
  • Clips of Ultra Seven were shown on an episode of Space Ghost Coast to Coast, with the host trying to get guest Joel Hodgson to help "MST" them.
  • This series was originally going to be named Ultra Eye.
  • The Ultraseven on the box cover of "Ultra Seven The Complete Series" is the Ultraseven suit made by Chaiyo.
  • The titular hero of the series is sometimes incorrectly called "Ultraman Seven" by many sources outside Japan (or in the case of KHON/Honolulu, Hawaii, Ultra-7, as listed in TV Guide when it ran in 1975). Both the series and its hero can also be called Ultra Seven (with a space).
  • Unlike it's proceeding series, this series is famous for featuring a much larger number of aliens during the show's run.
