Weird merge problem with Strangers with Candy's unaired pilot

Someone listed the unaired pilot for Strangers with Candy as a separate TV short. I merged this in to the existing episode, "Strangers with Candy" (1999) {Retardation: A Celebration (#1.0)}. However, the merge caused a weird title problem I can't fix. As you can see, the episode now has two titles. The topline one is from when it was listed as a separate short. The original title is the only one that should exist.

Yeah this is a common problem with merges. Only staff is able to clear these AKAs after a merge. I had a similar problem recently.

It's interesting that this glitch is the only way a singular episode could have an alternate title on the database.

It's not the only way. A rare fluke happens when you try and rename an episode that also ends up with an alternate title.

Hi Adrian -

I have now manually removed the AKA title from the episode, I have also filed a ticket regarding the display glitch allowing previous AKA titles to remain listed.  As soon as I have an update on this fix I will post the status here.
