Episode runtime

As the archive acquires script scans, I have been keeping track of the approximate unedited runtime of the episodes based on page count.  Alongside this, I have timed out the broadcast episode' original story animation, meaning no intro, credits, bumpers or repeated footage.  Recaps are only included if they are accounted for in the scripting.

The majority of scripts are timed based on a standard of 30 second per page.  Some scripts from 1983 and up to the summer of 1984 worked to an older timing standard, of around 20 to 25 second per page.
