Crew[edit]

English crew[edit]

Music[edit]

In Japan, for both seasons, the series used two theme songs; the opening theme, "The Rainbow Bridge" (虹の橋, Niji no Hashi), and the ending theme, "My Town's Merry-Go-Round" (私の町はメリーゴーランド, Watashi no Machi wa Merī Gorando), were both performed by Ushio Hashimoto. Incidental music used in the Japanese version was composed by Hideo Shimazu. The theme tune and incidental music used in the English dub were both composed by Haim Saban and Shuki Levy. Most of the incidental music was in fact recycled from the earlier VHS series My Favorite Fairy Tales.
