9. It Was Utter Chaos From The First Episode
The studio decided to release the first two episodes simultaneously so the viewers would be able to understand the story and characters better. When these episodes premiered, it was a disaster. The animators' schedule was so tight, they literally made hundreds of mistakes where sound and animation wasn’t synched up. The creators were given two chances to make a great show and it seemed like they'd blown their chance.
But they weren't going to go down without a fight. The animators crunched the hours and fixed all the mistakes in the pilot before airing it again.
Sadly, that wasn't the only problem. Because this took place before the era of the Internet, miscommunication was a huge problem with many studios. Sometimes, episodes were shown in the wrong order (which was highly confusing if a story was made up of three or four episodes.) There were also times where an episode was finished but it wouldn't air for a whopping two years.
With egos clashing, changes in crew or producers, executives leaving, and scripts being rewritten in a day, it's a miracle the show even saw the light of day in the first place.
