Awkward Dub Moments

Post by John » Sun Apr 29, 2007 2:58 pm

This thread isn't so much a "list all the bad dub moments that have ever happened" thread. I was just wondering if there has ever been maybe a youtube video made that covered all the bad/awkward/silly moments in the dub.

If there isn't one, perhaps clips can be posted?

"That's right. Mondo cool..."

"Well, excuse me, Mr. Hot Pants."


Wouldn't have been a big deal had they not come from Vegeta.

Taken from the English dub
Bulma: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Gohan: An orthopedist
Funny thing is...that's not what Gohan said in the Cantonese dub which was pretty close to the original except for the obvious country-specific references. (For example, "yen" is used instead of beni's, zeni's or however their currency is called in the DBZ series.) I remember Gohan saying that he wanted to be a "文學家" (a writer, philosopher, something like that).
The world is your's.

Little Chi-Chi in filler flashback scene to little Goku: On a date, the boy tries to trick the girl into doing the most pleasurable thing.


Now, excuse me if my mind was in the gutter, but that sounded like she was coming on to him.

That was hilariously awkward. One of those "do you think they knew what they were doing when recording this?" moments.

Piccolo's "no boost" was great, though toliet guy was creepy. o__o


Also, where is this kamehameha dump flash video?
I'm curious. XD

When ever Funimation add dialogue, when there was that big stand off, it was dramatic and silent in the Japanese one, but they made Raditz more Cocky in the Funimation dub by adding lines for him!

The Balls are Inert.

And in the British movie Dub where Goku yells up in his He-man like voice "Magic Cloud!"

Ginyu calling Goku "Mr. Too busy to show off your pecs", I always thought was funny.

Sorry, you know you can't get past a thread like this without this line...

Freeza, when Ginyu brings him the seven Namek DragonBalls all together: "Having these balls makes me feel something which I think resembles joy... I want to caress them!"
BGM forever! If only more people paid attention to it... well, I intend to change that.

"Oh my Gosh!" and "DARN YOU!!!" sound so cheesy.

Are they fixing them for the boxsets?

That was so unexpected. I guess DBZ really isn't for kids...I'm kidding by the way.
