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.

Happy 57th Anniversary to A Charlie Brown Christmas.
Jessica Gallaher said on her website that she worked on Jessica's Big Little World. Given how she credits herself as both a storyboard artist and writer, this means the show is storyboard driven like Craig Of The Creek. This is also the second preschool show after Let's Go Luna to be storyboard driven.

Wrote a little review for Kids Next Door: Operation Zero today. Quite a nice watch that expanded the universe in fun and interesting ways, as per usual.
Looks like there is some good news!

I speculate this third pandemic winter could end up being it's very last one, ever (we don't need to have too many).
