So basically it was the same show all along, but the main difference was episode length/count? Where does G-Force come in though and why did they air that instead?

G-Force is a more faithful dub version of Gatchaman made in the 1980's when restrictions of violent acts on television became lax (whereas Battle of the Planets cut out the more violent parts and replaced them with footage of 7-Zark-7).

Actually, Sentai was an influence to Voltron's source material Golion, not the other way around.
I believe JabarR was saying that Gatchaman influenced Golion/Voltron as well as other shows (as in the five-member consisting of the main guy, the "rival" character, the big guy, the youngster, and the female member) .

Yes but still, Sentai was the more direct influence towards Golion.

I just found out a life-size Lucario plush exists.
Today marks the 20th Year Anniversary of (the "formal" premiere of) Codename: Kids Next Door. This show is one of (if not) my favorite Cartoon Network show(s) and I remain hopeful that Tom Warburton's wish for the sequel show to see the light of day become a reality.
Damnit, I’m so distraught. Why can’t these times ever let the hell up?
