Availability

The European dubs of this series are easily found online, but the original Japanese version is harder to find. There were 12 VHS releases with 3 episodes each which contained episodes 1-36, as well as 5 extra releases that each contained one episode previously released on VHS. Currently episodes 1-33 are available in Japanese. The VHS containing 34-36 has not been located yet and episodes 37-52 were never released on VHS. The episodes that are missing in Japanese are available dubbed in Italian on YouTube (albeit with mirrored video).
