    • The episodes would eventually be aired when the entire series was rebroadcast with the exception of episode 220, which was excluded due to the fact that Takora was repeatedly referred to as crazy. This was thought to be verbally abusive to the mentally ill, as he eventually goes on a violent rampage attacking all the inhabitants of Wonder Forest with a sword.
