The series aired on Yomiuri Telecasting Corporation between March 3, 1984 and November 6, 1985.[1] The feature film Legend of the Gold of Babylon, was released in theaters during the original broadcast run of this television series. The film was co-directed by Seijun Suzuki, who wrote the screenplay for episode 13 of this series. Among English-speaking fans, this series is commonly known as the "Pink Jacket" series in reference to Lupin's outfit, which replaces Part I's green jacket and Part II's red jacket with a bright pink one.

Music for the series including the opening and ending themes was written by Yuji Ohno. The opening theme Sexy Adventure was performed by Yosuke Nakamura and the ending theme Fairy Night was performed by Sonia Rosa.[2][3]

A DVD box set of the series was released in Japan on May 26, 2002.[4]
