    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.
