Apparently there was also an animated series from the States although I have no recollection of it at all and I'm not sure it ever crossed the Atlantic. It only ran five episodes which sounds like it was a mini-series try-out which failed to muster the necessary enthusiasm amongst station managers to progress to a full series.
The comic (no US edition) ran for six fortnightly issues before being cancelled suddenly with all the story lines in mid-flow. A one-shot wrap-up, using the existing commissioned (and paid for!) inventory surfaced a few months later.
The cover below is by the ever-excellent Ian Kennedy.
