History[edit | edit source]
On April 1st, 2018, a Lost Media Wiki user by the name of "dugongue" posted a thread regarding an official English dub for Motu Patlu. He only found an episode in English, which he archived. He also found on the Motu Patlu wikia page an text regarding the dub: "On Sep 31 2015 Kabillion premires Motu and Patlu With English voices replacing Hindi voices."
On IMDb, he discovered 6 episodes which all feature the English Motu/Patlu VAs. In addition, the writer of all 6 of those episodes has one more IMDb credit which may be one more English dubbed episode.
On March 16th, 2018, dugongue spoke to Motu's VA Ben Bledsoe asking about the lost dub. He was told that he remembered recording six or seven episodes, which matches up with IMDb, having contact in India with Tapan Choudhury at Braveheart Production. The used also tried to contact Mr. Choudhury on Linkedin and the recording company 44th Floor Productions through their email but he got no reply in both cases.
Also, on their Facebook page there is a post from February 5th, 2013 in which they are talking about working on the English dub.
On November 1st, 2018, dugongue found another episode on a mirror website and archived it.
In April 2019, Wow Kidz’s sister channels started posting episodes of Motu Patlu dubbed in English, this time being a new dub made by a different studio (unknown at this time). Unfortunately, they didnt upload the original dubbed episodes.
