Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad is a 26-episode anime adaptation of the original manga by Harold Sakuishi, originally airing in Japan from 2004 to 2005.

The Canadian music-oriented television channel MuchMusic began airing the anime on March 9, 2007. This was before the series was released on DVD, and could be considered a "rough cut" of sorts of the dub that Funimation placed on the DVD. It is likely that a number of changes were made from the dub that aired on MuchMusic and the dub on the DVD based on viewer feedback.

One notable difference confirmed between the DVD and the MuchMusic dub is the level of profanity. While there is a substantial amount of strong language in the DVD version of the dub, the version that aired on MuchMusic contains only mild bad language.

This original dub was at one point available from MuchMusic's website for Canadian users, however was removed when they stopped airing the show. According to viewers of the online version, the music was shortened only in this version, and was left fully intact on television.

No footage of the dub has appeared online or on any DVD release of the series.

Calling it an alternate English dub is a bit much (pun not intended). It's ultimately the same VAs and production company, just a different take, for TV.

In the credits it actually says "English Re-versioned by FUNimation Productions" so yea, it's the same but just an "made to tv" version... a bit similar to DBzKai when it was airing in Nicktoons... only that this one was rated PG (similar to TV-14 in the US). If Turner (i.e Adult Swim) wanted the show back then it would had been this version.

Btw, all of the F-bombs are replaced if you're wondering (i.e "Who the hell are you?!" instead).

So from what I understand from the topic there are two versions? One the TV Version and another the WEBRip version (from MuchMusic site). I only have the TVRip version in which the songs are less cut (op left in its 1:30 normal).

Should this be changed as "Found" or "Found (TV Ver only)"?

@Obsessive Cat I think it was a mega torr3nt thing back when I was a little kid who used to use that. I re-uploaded them all on MEGA and shared them on a forum a while back.

I'd like to mention that I only have the TV Captures and NOT the so-called WEBRips from the MuchMusic site (since this article mentions the ones on their site being different).

I need to wonder if there's a version of the dub that doesn't completely change the cover of "I've Got a Feeling" to a totally new song.
