    • Notes:
      • An international export English version was made, and the film was dubbed into English in Japan. The firm used is not officially known, it was certainly not Frontier as William Ross and others' voices are absent. It could well have been Pedro Production, a competing Japanese English dubbing house known best for the atrocious export dub of Gamera vs. Guiron, as the dub’s quality standard typical of Pedro. The voice cast is completely unknown, though Mike Daneen, who apparently dubbed for Pedro, may have dubbed himself.
