    I don't mean to sound like a troll, but Nelvana and Saban were MUCH worse than 4Kids, when you think about it.

    Saban - butchered Dragon Ball Z and Escaflowne, they're also the reason why we'll never see Slayers on American Television.

    Nelvana - did the Cardcaptors dub. they ruined it FAR worse than anything 4Kids ever did to Yu-Gi-Oh.

    At least the saban and nirvana dubs stayed true to japanese culture at some level. I mean 4kids has this whole "shadow realm" thing in Yugioh, come the freak on! And at least when they had chistmas specials, the christmas trees are still green not PURPLE! SHEESH!

    Uh, the DBZ dub had "TEH NEXT DIMENSION" which is just as bad as the Shadow Realm.

    and Cardcaptors COMPLETELY CHANGED HALF THE CHARACTERS!

    They changed the plot of the show so Lee/Syoran was just as big a character as Sakura, when he wasnt in the japanese version.

    and Madison/Tomoyo was a Lesbian in the original.

    and Sakura's brothers hung around alot because they were gay together. but did the English version make reference to ANY of this? nope.

    also, Saban's Escaflowne dub took out the whole Tarot card symbolism, when that was a HUGE part of the plot. they also stopped dubbing halfway when they realized they couldnt write their way around the Dilandau twist.

    at least with 4Kids, they kept the original plots intact, minus the death references, instead of Screwing around with the main plot like Saban and Nelvana.

    280. The dialogues aren't very good.
    281. The voice actors are anonymous and uncredited.
    282. They edited the entire anime episodes.
    283. The American animated shows stink like the new TMNT.

    No it doesn't unless your trying to bash the new seasons. Why are people acting like their childhoods got raped? No matter how good, Turtles, Transformers, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica are, people are going to bash their remakes for no good reason.

    This chat hasn't been here for 3 years. Well, we've been there.


    U should be proud that you've been saved by Nickelodeon for their new TMNT, which introduces 3D/CGI animation, which 4Kids never did. Nick is not racist. THANK GOD!!! 4Kids has been of bankrupt (good), and is now changed to 4Licensing Corporation, lost their website and their block changed from CW4Kids to Toonzai to Vortexx (owned by Saban). I'm British, but I know this. Nelvana, Saban, Funimation and other, are not that bad. They appreciate the stuff and they don't "Americanise" or "Canadianise" stuff. Pokemon Diamond and Pearl and Black & White are with Pokemon USA, and without 4Kids, it's better. 4KIDS UPDATION!!!


    Yu-Gi-Oh! - owned by Saban


    Pokemon - still owned by Pokemon USA


    Gogoriki - ended


    4Kids RACIST!! I'm black! U know u sucked so u lost everything!

    Not sure if I'm bumping this thread, but as far as I'm concerned this thread still applies.


    Anyone remember Legion of Superheroes? It was an animated rendition of the comics on Kids WB running from 2006-2008. It got two seasons, with the second much darker and edgier and it got a cliffhanger for season 3... which never came because 4Kids came along, gasped, and said, "Dark? Edgy? This was made in America, so we can't just dub over it and "lose" the dark episodes... KILL IT WITH FIRE!"


    4Kids. You suck. If Legion of Superheroes does not get a third season I will hate you forever.
