**** The 1979 anime of ''Doraemon'' also had many attempts to air in the US, dubbed into English. The first attempt dub was from Turner Enterprises for it's airing on SuperStation WTBS, but this attempt failed and the anime never aired. The second attempt dub was from Phuuz Entertainment (now Unbound Creative Inc.), who actually made a pilot to send to many television channels in the USA. Unfortunately, nobody picked it up. Thus, this attempt failed too. Both the Turner and Phuuz dubs are hard to find.

* The 2002 anime ''Mirmo Zibang!'' has two English dubs. The first one was made by Viz Media and ShoPro. The second English dub was made in Singapore by Voiceovers Unlimited. Both the Viz/ShoPro dub and the Voiceovers Unlimited dub are pretty hard to find on the internet.

* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', yet again, in Hungarian. The original dub was created back when the show initially aired, and is considered to be by many to be a masterpiece (and for years it was thought to be lost). It was, in reality, an [[InconsistentDub inconsistent]] HongKongDub. The second, made years later for the DVD release, received numerous criticisms for its sub-par casting choices and lazy translation work, with only Alfred having his original voice. There even exists a third dub, created for just few later episodes for a TV broadcast, probably because they weren't available in either of the other dubs.

* In Russia, ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' had two translations. There was a dub that aired on TNT and Nickelodeon in the mid-late 2000's, and a more recent VoiceoverTranslation on Paramount Comedy (the Russian equivalent of Creator/ComedyCentral). The Russian channel 2x2 aired the ''Adult Party Cartoon'' version of Ren and Stimpy with a VoiceoverTranslation, including the banned episode "Man's Best Friend" and the unedited pilot "Big House Blues".

* The ''Manga/SailorMoon'' manga has two complete English translations. There's the original 1998 one from Creator/{{Tokyopop}} (then known as Mixx), which made use of Creator/DiC's localized character names (except Usagi, who was called "Bunny" instead of "Serena") and was a very liberal adaptation. When Kodansha USA rescued the series in 2011, their releases featured a new, far more literal translation using the original Japanese names/terms. They also translated ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'', which Tokyopop never touched.
