    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    I think it was very unnecessary. Was there an actual reason for it being made??

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    I'm not sure if dubbing British accents over American ones was the right thing to do. Not sure if it was wrong either.
    Call me biased, but I grew up with this dub, and I prefer it. On first hearing American Ziggy, I felt he sounded weird. I've noticed that in Extra Ziggy has the catchphrase "Brilliant!"

    If you listen closely enough it sounds like Bessie's singing it... but I'm sure we all know why that is!
    Yes, they dubbed it so the children wouldn't develop any mixed accents. I mean, if an American said elevator, a British person would say lift.

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    The main problem with the so called "British " dub, is that all the voices are southern English, there are no Scottish, Welsh or Irish accents, new even any English regional accents.

    However if you want to hear some really strange British accents, look for some old episodes of "The Pot Men", on youtube.

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    The dub would certainly be better if the voices changed from the original didn't all have the same voice actor. The closest this wasn't the case was in LazyTown Extra, only Ziggy had a british voice and everyone else have their original actor's voice.

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    Apparently the original version did air on cbeebies over here in the UK but I wasn't fortunate enough to capture it. What i'd give to see recordings of the US version. I do have like 9 US episodes recorded from UK tv from s3/4 though.

    As far as I know cbeebies only broadcasted the UK dub and it was on Channel 5 (Milkshake TV) that aired S3 in the original US language.

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    The wizard of lazytown is the only episode that airs on UK TV with the original US voices now since milkshake have stopped airing lazytown all together. I'm guessing they never dubbed it or something. Also apparently according to people Cbeebies did accidentally air the US version at some point back in 2007. If only I had a time machine to find out myself. Also if anyone is interested in my recordings I could upload them on getlazymedia.

    Do you know what episode and when in 2007 this might've happened?

    You know, if I had borrowed Robbie's Time Machine, I would go buy MILLIONS of rare LazyTown Merchandise at my local Zellars store! xD (That's now a STUPID LOWES store...)

    Re: Thoughts on the British dub?

    What was the point of the british dub anyway? What is the point in ANY british dub of american shows? Just doesn't make sense and people may say it's because of the accent but kids are always watching tons of cartoons in the UK that retain their american voices. Thank god the internet exists now so i've been able to get my hands on those sweet sweet 1080p US downloads!
