When aired on the Hub Network (now Discovery Family), the first three episodes are closed-captioned by VITAC in pop-on mode, while episodes 4, 5, 14, 18, 19, 20 and 24 are done in roll-up mode (like in the second half of Season 2 and in Season 3), and the rest are done by a Canadian closed captioning organization that resembles the National Captioning Institute, in which their closed captions for all 26 episodes (mostly in lowercase) can be seen on iTunes and other VOD streaming services.
