Little Trivia about this release:

- The recording was a little bit complicated to mix, because the yodel and the alpine horn (in the opening theme) had to be recorded in Switzerland, and then, mixed at the same time and at the same time, with the Japanese themes.
But it was not simple: Nippon Columbia's accounting manager, who produced the theme songs, didn't want to pay a recording overseas for Hidetoshi Kimura, who was in charge of directing the music for the release at that time. Therefore, Kimura had to go by himself in Switzerland, with a mixing engineer on his own.
When the theme songs release became very popular (more than 1.2 million copies in Japan and over a million copies in Europe), the accounting manager and Kimura got closer and have a very good relationship since.

- The opening theme, "Oshiete", received a special prize at the second FNS Song Festival in 1974. The release won later Nippon Columbia's Golden Disc Record.

- Takeo Watanabe was more kind while recording the ending theme, "Mattete Goran", with Kumiko Osugi, than when he recorded with her the "Attack No.1" opening theme in 1969.
Starting with "Mattete Goran", Kumiko Osugi will sing various themes (opening, ending, insert, image) for the 4 next World Masterpiece Theater series (Dog of Flanders, From the Apennines to the Andes, Rascal the Raccoon and The Perrine Story), along with Watanabe's composition, Matsuyama's arrangement and Kishida's works.
