Did you know that 80’s cartoon favorite Voltron was really just an edited version of two Japanese shows called GoLion and Dairugger XV? They were…uh…A LOT more violent than the original, as you can see in the above video. If you want to see the whole thing though, it’s being released on DVD soon! Woo! Giant robot violence!

  1. I have been waiting to see this version of one of the icons of my childhood for years. As much as I love Voltron, if you’re watching for anything more than the visuals, which aren’t so hot in most places, it’s kinda weak, mostly because the plots make about zero sense. (That said, they do make more sense than my other favorite childhood cartoon, Battle of the Planets, which had almost identical characters.) Now I can finally see what actually happened to Sven! And did Keith and Allura ever kick it?

  2. @License Farm:

    From the way some of the scenes from the unedited show look…my guess is they all kicked it. Together. While snorting coke off of Pidge’s ass. Hell, when you work as hard as the Voltron Force, risking your life and limb against crazy stuff all the time, you need to party just as hard…and try to forget some of what you’ve seen out there. I don’t begrudge those brave men and women any of their vices, they’ve earned the right to them.
