** The Italian dub has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdvXJmlvbQM this theme song]], perfomed (unsurprisingly) by Cristina D'Avena.

* In Italy, pretty much ''every'' anime gets at least one if not more (especially the ones airing on any Mediaset channel) and they are usually very [[EarWorm catchy]]. In particular, Italian singer Cristina D'Avena is famous in Italy for performing alternative theme songs for ''hundreds'' of different animes in the 80s, 90s and early 2000s. Seriously, if you hear an italian opening from those years sung by a woman, it's most likely Cristina D'avena. Her "spear counterpart" was Giorgio Vanni (famous especially for the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' and ''Franchise/DragonBall'' theme songs).

While the lyrics of their openings are mostly Italian, you can expect a lot of random GratuitousEnglish everywhere.



** Tough in the most recent years, Italy started to avert it, and the opening, if dubbed, is a rough translation of the original, with way less good results.

* [[Anime/HeidiGirlOfTheAlps Heidi, Girl of the Alps]] has an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pu7MjOd0o0Y German theme song]] that's become a geniune hit in that country (#3!) and was even more popular [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RI3qPvtYnv0 in Italy]] (#4, helped by the moreso [[{{Woolseyism}} woolseyised]] lyrics) and also well-known in South Africa, despite [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNIAzG_n9L8 not actually being translated to Afrikaans]] (which the rest of the dub was in).

*** Their dub of the original ''Dragon Ball'' (also with Blue Water) got a rather childish [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Er1kOz5w9iE Canadian opening]] based on the French theme that the UK broadcaster found so embarrassing, they made their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqU0urk9Rwc own opening theme]].

* ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' in Italy has a single [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3qL_zxNAfg opening]] for all the series druing the '80s. The song is also a mystery because title, writer and singer are still unknown today. In the '99 was replaced by another song titled "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SW1fdas2e1c Mi hai rapito il cuore Lamù]].

* The 1979 ''Anime/{{Cyborg009}}'' anime got a Finnish dub in the 90's, which included [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ICStM27Ddw an entirely new opening]]. This is particularly interesting because Finnish dubbing companies usually never do that - in fact, at the time it was pretty common for dubbed anime to air with the original Japanese opening and ending themes.

* The American version of ''Anime/SonicX'' used "Gotta Go Fast" as opposed to "Sonic Drive".

The American version of ''Anime/SonicX'' used a theme boasting about Sonic that is completely different from the Japanese theme called "Gotta Go Fast" as opposed to "Sonic Drive".
** There is also an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=7yj7kO9Y1ms Italian opening]] and one for the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aexmqty2Y3E UK version]].version]] (this is, however, mostly an electronic-ish instrumental song that has a man and a woman singing "Sonic X!" repeatedly).
