A bird-themed superhero team battles the threat of Galactor and his minions, an international terrorist organization with advanced technology.
In 1986, Turner Broadcasting acquired the rights to 85 episodes of Gatchaman (episodes 1-80, 82-85, and 87) and commissioned a brand-new English-language dub of the series under the name "G-Force." This run of episodes included fourteen episodes (Gatchaman (1972) episodes 13, 19, 20, 28, 29, 34, 38, 50, 56, 64, 66, 78, and 85) that were not dubbed by Sandy Frank Productions as part of the series Battle of the Planets (1978).
Because Sandy Frank Production owned the rights to the "Battle of the Planets" names used for their dubbing of Gatchaman, new overly cartoonlike names were used for all of the main characters. Also omitted from "G-Force" is 7-Zark-7, who is owned by Sandy Frank Productions.
