Peppa Pig (partially found American dub of British children's animated series; 2005)
Peppa Pig is one of the longest-running British animated preschool programs of all time, being shown in a whopping 180 territories in 40 languages, along with having over a billion dollars worth of merchandise sold all around the world. But prior to being rerun on Nick Jr. in the 2010s, Peppa Pig was first shown to the American audience in 2005 with an American dub, in the ill-fated Cartoon Network preschool block, Tickle-U.
As Tickle-U only lasted a year and a half, the American dub was lost along with the block. All post-2007 U.S. releases and airings of the show use the British dub, as the American dub received poor ratings.
Interesting to note is that, on several occasions, Tickle-U aired episodes with the original UK audio.
Voice Cast[edit | edit source]
Elaine Torres said that she voiced Suzy Sheep in the American broadcast. In addition, Chloe Dolandis has stated on her resume that she was the voice of Emily Elephant and Richard Rabbit, though it is unknown if episodes from the second season ever aired with that dub.
