This Japanese and American animated series was the adaptation of two different unrelated Japanese anime series, Beast King GoLion (later knowns as season 1) and Armored Fleet Dairugger XV (later knowns as season 2), produced as a joint venture between World Events Productions and Toei Animation. In total 124 episodes were produced between September 10, 1984 and November 18, 1985 in 3 seasons, plus one-hour Fleet of Doom special. Season 3 consisted of original American-created episodes, starring Lion Voltron.

It was also known as Voltron, Defender of the Universe and The New Adventures of Voltron. The first season featured the Vehicle Voltron, where Voltron was comprised of numerous space vehicles. In the second season, Voltron was a mighty robot who defended peaceful planets and justice. It seemed invincible until an evil witch, Haggar, in an effort to destroy it, split it into 5 parts, each a large robotic lion. Centuries later, with Zarkon ruling the galaxy, five space explorers including Keith discovered the parts and reassembled them. With his friends, Voltron was revived to protect the planet Arus once again from evil forces. United as the megarobot Voltron, they battled Zarkon and Hagar.

The show became an instant success in the United States and spawned a lot of tie-in merchandise as well as two subsequent series.
