Unlike today when TV anime is made in seasons of 24 episodes, Urusei Yatsura was produced non-stop from beginning to end with no seasonal breaks, at the same time as producing 4 movies (No wonder the animators were always so exhausted). So it's hard to divide it up into seasons since as far as I can tell, there was no differentiation. Instead for the purpose of this page, I've divided up the episodes based on when the opening or ending theme song was changed. We'll call these "seasons" but really don't take it literally.

In the creation of these summaries, the entire 50 volume set of laserdiscs were viewed in their original Japanese. Since the writers of these summaries were not completely fluent at the time, there are more than a few mistakes within. But overall they present a good look at the entire television run.
