Compilation FilmsEdit

In the UK, two compilation 'movies' were released to home video. That meaning, instead of being actual films, they are compiled from various episodes to make one title. The editing on these is very poor and generally the episodes used create a very inconsistent all over the place plot. The movies were originally released in 1983 by Thorn EMI on VHS and Betamax and rereleased in 1987 by Master Vision.
