Freeza Saga Son Gohan humming Makafushigi Adventure in French dub

Post by coola » Sat Mar 14, 2020 7:30 am

I remember there was interesting easter egg in French dub of Freeza Saga, sometimes during action scenes, Gohan hummed part of Makafushigi Adventure. It is pretty interesting, especially since French opening of Dragon Ball was completely different.

The French OPs were different, but the rest of the music was not. It wouldn't surprise me if the French actors had some level of familiarity with the Kikuchi score and its various motifs.

Wasn't there an episode of the Saban dub where Bulma sang a bit of the BLT DB theme to herself?

Yeah in one of the voyage to Namek episodes.

I came across a similar Easter egg in the original Ocean Z dub where Bulma, Gohan, and Kurilin are on fake Namek in the ice cave amd Bulma is humming the original Ocean BLT (?) Dragon Ball theme (this one: https://youtu.be/BqcdFywCRks )

There was also that one time in the Shadow Dragon arc where Goku can be heard humming the OG series theme in the Funi dub.
Now available on Twitter.

The Internet summed up in four words.
"This sucks. Make more."

Kid Goku does it too, on occasion. Definitely in GT, can't recall for OG Dragon Ball. It's a weird quirk Brigitte Lecordier brings to the two. A lot of ad-libbing going on in the original French dub so I imagine that has something to do with it.

Goku hums it in the Funimation dub of GT during one of the episodes with the six star dragon.

Edit: Wait, missed Valerius' post.
