To keep the suspense about the main monsters in the story, the first episode was only titled Invasion. Unfortunately, someone then managed to lose the color version. A black & white version of the episode mysteriously popped up in 1983. In the past stations have frequently aired this story without the first episode, with the episode numbers changed to cover up its absence.
