    What do you think will happen? This was based from a FMA thread that dealt with the same topic.

    First of all, it would lose most of the deeper meanings in the show. The show is all about a child transitioning from a young boy to a young man. As for the deeper meanings, the most obvious is Naota's fooly cooly horns. They are clearly symbolic for erections and boy's going through puberty and being confused. Things like this just can't be expressed to children in a watered down doses. The point is the show isn't intended for children, but for those of intellect who can decypher it for what it is....or those who like pretty colors

    or folks who are just fans of randomness, that's whut got me into the show.

    but, yeah, that would be terrible.

    furthermore, the entire idea of the adults who havn't really matured would be lost a well.

    I had a nightmare about that. Ahem, it would lose everything it stood for, and I bet that it would be destroyed. Just like the other victims: One Piece, Tokyo Mew Mew, Yu-Gi-Oh, that witch show (forgot it's name), and some others.

    I bet the show would be cut to 2-5 episodes, leaving out a lot of the excellent parts. The episode Bura Bure would be completely cut up, and the guns would be changed into Super Soakers.

    And the occult would become clowns taking over the world.

    "Coming up next the new half-hour movie called 'Fool of Cool'!"
    That's what I think will happen.

    Don't even joke about it!!!

    FLCL was possibly the best dub I've ever seen for an Anime show, and a simpling amazing experience. 4Kids would probably edit the show down to one episode.

    What a terrible thought...

    Don't even put such a thought in my head. 4Kids should not dub FLCL. In fact, no anime should be dubbed for kids. People look at it on the outside and think "This would make a great kids show," and then the outcome is horrible. That's what 4Kids did with Yu-Gi-Oh! and One Piece (although I don't watch it). They even ruined Pokémon, which is a kids show in Japan as well. Sailor Moon has got to be the worst dub I know of (thank you, DiC), and more recently, look at Naruto. Those are all good and popular shows, except that they're dubbed for kids. FLCL should only be dubbed the way it is. Does anyone which company dubbed FLCL for the U.S. in the first place? They did a great job, although I've never seen the original Japanese version.

    If FLCL would be dubbed by 4 kids it would turn into a gay show like one peice and shaman king and Yugioh which was already gay because honestly who wants to play a card game where the cost is your life. If someone would come to me with cards and say prepare to die because this duel is for your life! I would take a shovel hit his face in then take a gun and blow his brains out. THen i would say hahahah no its not! FLCL would turn into a Trinity Blood a gay show with no pliot whatsoever that never explains anything. Atomsk would be Purple with bunny stickers , Canti in battle mode would be pink. Naota would never come out of canti like poop. Haruko would never run over naota because it gives kids bad ideas. Junko would never say anything about puberty. Kamon would never be a perverted freak. Gaku and Masashi would never steal a car. Mamimi would have a sucker in her mouth and there would be nothing about sex in there or love. There would be no manga scenes. That leaves us with about a 6 minute short. That is right 1 episode 6 minutes long.
