This article covers the original series featuring Oh Pi that was cancelled. The series was planned to be set on an alternate version of Earth in the modern day and would have featured Oh Pi and Nurth assisting a task force called the GKDF to defend Earth from kaiju.
On an alternate version of Earth in 2016, the world has united as one to defend their planet. Taking place in Ganithrum (the equivalent of London in this universe), this series followed the adventures of five agents in the GKDF named Frank Marsh, Barry Barrow, Susan Grant, Katherine Hill and David Daykin. Working together as a team, they would help defend Ganithrum from any giant threats. When joined by Oh Pi and Nurth, things begin to get a lot crazier and many strange things begin to happen. For them, it's just another normal day!

Differences between both series
The first series was planned to be 20 episodes long and would have been standalone stories that were all revealed to have been tied together during the final episode. Though the series was never cancelled, the first episode was mostly completed and has made available to view on this page. All of the stories planned for this series were later adapted for The New Adventures of Oh Pi, with the exception of a story featuring Oh Pi fighting Keemosaur in a dream world.
When adapted for The New Adventures of Oh Pi, the main setting was changed from the year 2016 to the year 3007, and then to the year 3008 in The Human Ohpinian. With this setting now changed, Insolitam was brought into the same universe, merging the two universes into one. Multiple episodes of The New Adventures of Oh Pi have referenced the other series, with Birth being the one integral character connecting the two together.
Initially, Frank Marsh was just another member of the team. When the series was adapted for The New Adventures of Oh Pi, his role was changed from the leader of their small group to the head of the Virtue Kaiju Unit (or the Ganithrum Kaiju Defense Force as it was originally named), leaving the other four to work together as an independent unit. Splicer was also not part of the main cast and was instead planned to only appear in his debut episode.
John Brierly, another character from the adapted series, didn't exist in the original plan either. He was only worked into the adapted series once the main overall plot began to be more developed. Digital Oh Pi, Oh Petta, Platypus and Authoris were also originally planned to be a part of the series, before being pushed back for the second season when the series was adapted.
