Kudos to whoever changed all that crap once the show got picked up.
Heh, its been fun to go back and rewatch some of those old episodes on Netflix in HD. You can clearly make out mistakes such as makeup lines and cheesy plastic made props. Stuff we never picked up on as kids growing up watching them on old fuzzy UHF stations.
