Inspired by this recent article on Screenrant listing the top 10 rated episodes of the dub according to IMDB, I thought it would be interesting to compare the IMDB scores for each episode of the DiC dub (season one only) with its Japanese original counterpart. Obviously there's some margin of error here as doubtlessly there were people who rated one version mistaking it for the other, and not everyone who rated an episode rated both versions, but this should still provide us with a rough sense of what the general public thinks of each version of the series.

Higher scored episodes are in bold. Ties are italicized.
