The show was about a group of space explorers who piloted a giant super robot, Voltron. One of the robot's weapons was a sword that appeared to be as long as a skyscraper. The sword was particularly handy against the enemies that the team of explorers faced. This show was sprung from a joint venture between Toei Animation and World Events Productions. The original TV series was in syndication and you got to see it from 1984 to 1985. People enjoyed this series so much that there was a follow-up series, many comic books and an one-hour special.

People got to enjoy it again by watching the show on DVD. Twenty years after the show, Australians got to see all episodes of the show on a DVD released by Madman Entertainment. Voltron was distributed as a DVD by Media Blasters in Region 1. Manga Entertainment released this show on DVD in England in 2007.
