Does anyone know why the opening credits for the series are slightly different from the original broadcast on TV to the version used on DVD?

I'm curious because I much preferred the TV version (the DVD version ruins the pace and excitement).

Anyone know where to find the original TV version? Cheers!

Well, when you say 'Different Opening Credits', do you mean the fact that the DVD credits are only in French? I own the Volume One DVD, with 10 episodes. I got my legal DVD from Amazon.ca.

I was really young when the show was on TV, so I can't even remember the title sequence. I know that there was an old title and a new title for the newer episodes. Is that what you mean?

That is actually a very good question indeed. I've got the DVD quite recently and looking on YouTube for other versions, they both seem more or less the same but then came to the conclusion that was because they were the same. How to compare the two without having a video recording of the original transmission though, that is a tricky one.
