During the development of the project, the duo of directors had the support of several animators. Thus, the artists used several images of the original material as a reference and even managed to recreate part of the classic soundtrack.
According to the creators, the adaptation tried to be as faithful as possible to the script. However, certain passages have been modified for technical reasons or because they are “beyond the creative capacity of those involved”.
It is important to note that the original text by Michael Reaves has an open ending, as the producers still did not know if the drawing would be renewed for the 4th season. Therefore, the conclusion seen in the final minutes was written by the duo of directors.
