The series was adapted by Kitty Films into a 195 episode TV series that aired from October 14, 1981 to March 19, 1986 on Fuji Television.

The series aired on October 14, 1981 with the two part episode "I'm Lum-chan the Notorious!" / "It's Raining Oil All Over Town". The first 106 episodes were directed by Mamoru Oshii and the remainder by Kazuo Yamazaki. Urusei Yatsura concluded about five years later on March 19, 1986 with the 195th episode "All-Star Banquet! We Are Immortal!!". The 194th episode "Urusei Yatsura Immediate Farewell Special - Shine!! Planet Uru Award" is a repeat of episode 44 "After You've Gone" with a special introduction and best episode countdown before the episode.

During 1992, the series was licensed for a North American release by AnimEigo. Their VHS release began in October of the same year and was among the first anime titles to receive a subtitled North American release. However the release schedule was erratic. AnimEigo later released the series on DVD. The series was available in box set form as well as individual releases. A total of 10 boxsets and 50 individual DVDs were released between March 27, 2001 and June 20, 2006. Each DVD and VHS contained Liner notes explaining the cultural references and puns from the series. In February 2011 AnimEigo announced that it would not renew their license to the series and that their DVDs would fall out of print on September 30, 2011. A fan group known as "Lum's Stormtroopers" convinced the Californian public television station KTEH to broadcast subtitled episodes of the series in 1998.
