Main Characters in this Episode

It is likely at least in part for copyright reasons relating to the showing of this cartoon that the entire edition of "Update" was left off this show when E! Entertainment Television aired it in the early 2000s; it was, however, included when aired in hour-long syndicated form in the 1980s.
