Omer et le Fils de l'Étoile (Omer and The Starchild) was a French animated sci-fi series that made its debut on Canal+ in France in 1992, and went into syndication on TF1 the next year. It was also broadcast in Poland, Russia, the Netherlands and Iceland. It starred Omer, a sentient earthworm who lived on Earth under the rule of tyrannical monsters, hoping that the prophecy of a saviour arriving from beyond the stars will come true.
An English dub was produced at some point and shown in the early morning hours on Cartoon Network UK around 1997-1998, and likely aired on other channels as well. However the dub not resurfaced since it's initial airing.
In 2013 a fragment from the English dubbed intro had surfaced on to Youtube and later in 2014 the full version of the intro was found.
A lot of dubs to many cartoons are done by quieting down the original audio then dubbing over that so often times the original audio can be heard underneath. Thus It is theorized that the Russian dub (or other dubs) may have some of the English audio underneath but the videos that are currently online (aside from the theme song) are dubbed in a foreign language and don't have any trace of English audio. Though every single episode that is currently online, (Surprisingly even the original French ones.) have English titles and credits.
