Hard to tell what the real air order is. The 32 named episodes in Season 1 are ordered according to the numbers in the title cards, most likely the order that the episodes were recorded in. Additionally, there are several (15) duplicate, unknown, or misplaced episodes.

The remainder of the seasons, Seasons 2 - 5, appear to have the same ordering logic as the show's official YouTube channel:

however, several episodes are still missing on TVDB when compared to the YouTube channel.

I'd be happy to try to clean it up, but it'd be my first, so I'd like for someone with any authority to approve this request, and also check behind me to ensure I'm not screwing anything up. I'll be reading the requisite posts before any attempts, for sure.

Another user raised this issue in September of last year, I believe, but there was no response, and that post is locked now.

Hi,

We tend not to make changes to older shows like this without a very good source as it messes with people's libraries.

However, as you pointed out, there were a number of blank/duplicate episodes in Season 1. I also suspect all episodes were originally in Season 1 and then moved around to separate seasons as even without a source it was clear some episodes were in the wrong place.

I've therefore deleted the blank/duplicate episodes and tidied up Season 1. As you say, the screenshots are most likely the production order but all episodes in the "aired order" section of TVDB, must, by definition, be in the order they aired.

Let me know if anything still looks out of place.

Thanks
