  • Commander Samuel Sugata was used as his name in the Philippines (as Tagalog dubbing). Although in the dub, he was called as Director instead of Commander.
    • He and the Narrator from Episode 1 to Episode 31 are voiced by the same actor Eddie Ilarde as his main voice role alludes to his occupation as a radio announcer before he takes his career in politics as a congressman until his retirement.
