    Thoughts on the British dub?

    Why not. Just like the title suggests.
    Having grown up in the UK, I love the dub (well, at least S1/2), but obviously it's... erm... not for anyone.

    What are your thoughts??

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    I'd consider having the UK dub of CBTB on the Australian CD to be a blessing as opposed to a curse
    I do understand how it could be seen as rather... awful, for a lack of a better term, though. I suppose I'm biased because I grew up with it.

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    I find the british dub to be hilarious so I often find myself watching it just to get a good laugh.
    Especially Trixie's voice because she's still voiced by Sarah except now she goes all out with her accent.

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    It seemed like they got a bit sloppy in s3-4. Like in TWGR when they didn't even dub the chorus. And maybe in RFE, but I thought maybe they dubbed the UK voices over the US voices to make it sound better. Like in the chorus how Jodi is singing along with Stephanie. Or Stingy's part in the second chorus when there's a high key and low key at the same time. But in some cases the UK s3-4 dub, you can still hear US voices for some reason, which is really unnecessary because it is not hard to dub a simple little *haha* or something like that. I agree the s1-2 dub is good but the s3-4 dub is ok. Not terrible though.

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    I absolutely detest the UK dub to the point where I can't watch the Ziggy scenes of LazyTown Extra. All of the dubbed voices either sound annoying (like Ziggy) or stupid (like Pixel). Additionally, all of the accents sound totally fake and exaggerated.

    And the original actors didn't even have American accents strong enough that a UK dub would be required.

    Another terrible part of the UK dub is the singing, which seems to sacrifice pitch and tone for a fake British accent. Just look up "I am a Prince UK dub". They get rid of talented vocals from Jodi Eichelberger and (for seasons 1 and 2) Kobie Powell and replace them with depressingly bad singing.

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    Oh my... I can understand that though. I personally find it incredibly amusing (especially the singing). There are some songs that I really genuinely prefer the UK for, such as Wake Up.

    But Kobie Powell's so much better at singing. But yeah, Wake Up is one of the better UK dub songs.

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    Hate hate hate! I'm British myself and I hate that 'perfect' British accent they feel the need to go for. It's so grating and really distracts you from the episode.

    It's why I haven't bought any DVDs because I can only get the UK dub, unless I change the region on my DVD player or some such thing

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    The normal episode dubbing is good, but the songs are terrible just listen to this... eurgh :'( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KI4ZKyaGZeU the voices are unfitting with Stephanie's American accent, the sound mixing is done horribly, and the British pronunciation with the American pronunciation is different, so it creates like a shit-show of different accents... So in conclusion, the normal episode dubbing is good, but the songs are ew ( I do like season 3/4 tho =)

    Also hi Owlz! = ))))

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    While I do occasionally listen to the UK music videos for a laugh, I feel that making Julie Westwood the voice actor for Pixel was a bit unnecessary. Not only did she have to fake a stereotypical British accent, she also had to fake a MALE British accent. I have nothing against Julie as her voice acting for Bessie was great, but I feel they should have hired a different voice actor for the UK dub of Pixel.

    As for the rest of the characters, my opinions are mixed. As stated before they make me laugh more when I watch their episodes than the US ones do, but when they're all talking at once I sometimes find it hard to distinguish between the dubbed characters.

    Fun fact though, Julie Westwood didn't have to fake it - she is British! She even puppeteers Tula in The Hoobs.
    Though her Pixel voice is still atrocious. It's the worst voice in the British dub for sure - yet even then, it does seem to have some sort of odd charm to it.

    I do enjoy the British dub more over the American dub overall - Ziggy and Stingy's voices are personal preferences of mine. The songs are a bit poor though, I must admit.

    No, I'd prefer if Julie re-dubbed her Bessie lines in the same voice instead. Fuck British Pixel

    Oh, that's interesting! Guess I didn't do enough research then. I did know she voiced Tula in The Hoobs but didn't think too much of it when I wrote my post - silly me!

    That basically sums up the UK dub.

    I did a bit of searching and apparently a lot of US shows got UK dubs back in the day (probably even now, but I can't be bothered to search any more) because they didn't want British kids still learning how to speak to develop mixed accents or something.

    If you listen closely enough it sounds like Bessie's singing it... but I'm sure we all know why that is!
