I remember this airing when I was little, love the dub, one of the best of it's time

@HienFan It's pretty interesting that this dub is composed entirely of radio veterans. I mean, that really adds some sort of uniqueness to it.

Jack Grimes was the second voice of Jimmy Olsen in the 1940s radio show, and to hear his voice on a dub, was a really interesting change of pace for me. Same with Jack Curtis. That smooth baritone voice fits Pops perfectly. Corrine Orr, who was a member of the talented CBC radio cast (who did the 67 Spidey cartoon) before coming to America, was just fantastic. And Peter Fernandez, the guy was in almost 1000 radio shows, and to hear his voice in this show was a real treat.

This is a pretty good dub featuring some pretty talented radio veterans.

@HienFan Yeah, but one with a unique touch.

I mean, how many dubs feature radio veterans on them??? Almost none. Only this dub, along with the 60s Astroboy and Kimba are the only ones I've seen that feature radio performers.

@Starscreamsfan That's why those three are some of the best dubs I ever heard(and Courage the Cowardly dog has my favourite Cartoon Network voice work)

@Starscreamsfan And I just love Peter Fenandez as Speed, it just wasn't the same when Greg Abbey took over in the new show

@HienFan Yeah, Fernandez is really iconic in this role. Seeing him reprising the role in the Next Generation cartoon was a real treat, but I was bummed when I heard they replaced him (to which I said "that's impossible, FERNANDEZ IS IRREPLACEABLE!!!!".

And yeah, I mean it really was a real treat for an old time radio weirdo like me to see these guys on an anime dub (especially Jack Grimes and Jack Curtis).

A favorite TV Show

"Probably one of the coolest shows of it's time!"
