video interview with the series' Executive Producer Jameson Brewer
Battle of the Planets was a late-70s episodic cartoon series that was a re-branding of the early-70s Japanese anime Science Ninja Team Gatchaman, which is held as one of the landmark series of the industry.
Battle of the Planets was kiddie crack. There was nothing else like it on children's television
at the time. It had been edited to reduce the violence of the anime (i.e. people being shot,
beaten, caught in explosions, etc) but the starkness and violence of the images that weren't cut
was still intense, like skies consumed in World War II-esque firestorms. There was a LOT of fire
in this show.
What further distinguished Battle of the Planets from other hero shows of the time like Super Friends was the heroes frequently lost in battle, extensively damaging and sometimes destroying their ship. The failures weren't just seen but were felt by the characters. There was a lot of anger and darkness. Battle of the Planets looked and felt unique and we ate it up.
Battle of the Planets used both the original music in Gatchaman and new music composed by Hoyt Curtin. Curtin was asked to create "Space Rock" but was otherwise left alone to do his composing. Some of it is very, very disco-influenced 70s. Some of it not so much. I want to rave about it but I also don't want to put anyone to sleep. The show was broadcast in mono but the American recording sessions were two-track, allowing the soundtrack CDs to be mastered in stereo.
 I'm going to add a 1080p rip of the Gatchaman episode The Firebird Versus The Fire-Eating Dragon to the folder. It's the episode that the above 'Comparison of one music cue' video is from. It should be up in a few hours so check back.
[edit2] It's up! Two things to note:
1 - This is from the 2013 Sentai Works blu-ray release. They did a new English-language dub with a new voice cast.
2 - If you watched Battle of the Planets at all the first thing you will likely notice in Gatchaman is how quiet it is. Music is used sparingly whereas the American producers seemed to be terrified of not blanketing every second with score. There are moments when it plays better with the quiet hanging, and then there are moments like when the Godphoenix (that's what they called her in Gatchaman) first faces the Dragon that the energy and tension of Hoyt Curtin's score is sorely missed.
