That episode was remarkably similar to the comic book. My guess is that
it was the pilot episode, and the look of it and the plotline were lifted
straight from the Archie comic. ABC sent it back and told them to write
the rest for an older age bracket. (this is all just theory here) So DIC
went ahead, wrote the "game robots" (buzz bomber and the like) out of the
plot and redid the look. I don't mind in the least.
