Too bad the Canadian dub is next to impossible to find, other than the cut, voice acting is pretty good, much better than the Wisconsin dub which sounds pretty flat

@HienFan Just listening to that voice clip of Astro from that dub makes me almost ashamed to live in the same state it was recorded.

@HienFan I looked up the first episode, and I retract what I just said. It's not great, but it's not that bad.

This is an extremely rare case of a show where I haven't heard of a single voice actor! XD Heck, I don't even know who dubbed this, or where it was dubbed...

Though I am familiar with most of the cast for the (rare, edited) Canadian dub.

@PurpleWarrior13 Bob Gonzalez mentioned this in an email to us just yesterday.

"Most of us were acting majors or graduate students. ... Nippon Television came to us. Why it came to the Unversity of Wisconsin-Madison, I'll never figure out, unless it was the relatively low flat fee we all happily accepted to do the job. I think there was kind of a pilot audition, because I remember we recorded for a couple weeks (?) in the early part of the summer and then finished the rest of the episodes in August 1982. So maybe they chose us after they heard our first work."

@Foxwolf Oh, so it was dubbed in Wisconsin? Interesting. They did a great job with the series, it's a shame none of them have really done much else voiceover-wise. It must've been really cool being a part of something as big as Astro Boy.
