A popular hobby on the internet seems to be dubbing old children’s shows. Dubbing consists of doing voice overs for the characters, which usually means we see Scooby Doo uttering an assortment of profanities. As juvenile as this might seem, the results are often hilarious. I could get into a lengthy explanation of how the juxtaposition of innocent characters and naughty language provides an entertaining amount of shock value, but I think I’ll let the results speak for themselves. Be warned, there are naughty words ahead!
I’m the Juggernaut, Bitch!
This dubbed episode of The X-Men is quite possibly the most famous dub ever done. This dub is so well known that when the Juggernaut was introduced in the X-Men movies, he actually uttered the famous line: “I’m the goddamn Juggernaut!” That is pretty much the highest peak of internet fame one can achieve. It is a long video but it keeps the laughs coming, and I could watch it many many times before it got old. It definitely makes me want to go outside and yell that I am the Juggernaut.
Aladdin in Compton
When it comes to dubs that are all about being vulgar, Aladdin from Compton reigns supreme. I warned you about that kind of language, don’t look so shocked. Alright, so I didn’t warn you about all the drug references, stop being such a sissy. If you didn’t laugh when the monkey started doing his little dance, you are dead inside. It might not be fair to dub a video with a dancing monkey, as that is already hilarious, but Aladdin from Compton is pretty entertaining all the way around.
G.I. Joe Teaches a Very Important Lesson
The old G.I. Joe cartoons are perhaps best known for the public service announcements at the end of each episode. Various Joes would warn children about the dangers of sticking their heads in microwaves or getting into the backs of windowless vans. The G.I. Joe PSA dubs are hilarious for the bad advice the Joes are giving children, and also threatening children. Apparently seeing giant muscled men threaten awkward little children is the height of hilarity.
Dirty Dirty Dinosaurs
Dinosaurs was kind of a dirty show on its own. There were plenty of adult oriented jokes that went over my little head when I used to watch it. This dub ran with the adult theme and took it to some pretty extreme levels. This Dinosaurs dub rivals the Aladdin from Compton dub in terms of pure vulgarity. Those of you who are as immature as I am will find this dub just as hilarious as the Aladdin one.
Skeletor’s Stinky Sh… Poop
Speaking of immature, this dub is about Skeletor’s nefarious plot to beat He-Man by pooping in a box. That is absolutely hilarious to me, and Skeletor’s insistence that this will work makes this one of the best dubs ever. The sad part is this isn’t that much more far fetched than most of Skeletor’s actual plots in the He-Man cartoon. When they get around to making a new live action He-Man movie, there will almost certainly be a reference to pooping in a box. I’d bet Orco’s life on it.
