Magical DoReMi, also known as Ojamajo Doremi, is a magical-girl anime series by Toei Animation that ran for 51 episodes on TV Asahi in Japan between February 1999 to January 2000. The show later inspired three followup seasons, two theatrical films, a direct-to-video series, as well as manga and light novels. In 2003, the New York-based 4Kids Entertainment licensed the first entry.[1] The company produced an English dub that had a shortlived run on their 4KidsTV FOX Saturday morning block between 2005 and 2006 before being ultimately finished as a web-exclusive.[2][3]

An earlier English dub was produced for the Asian market. It debuted in June 2004, on Channel i in Singapore.[4][5] The dub was recorded locally at Voiceovers Unlimited and starred Denise Tan.[6][7] It's not known if the company produced a dub for just the original series or the entire franchise.

No home video releases are known to exist, though given the time frame a VCD release in South East Asia is possible. No footage from this dub has surfaced online.
