Peppa Pig (partially found American dub of British children's animated series; 2005)
Peppa Pig is one of the longest-running British animated preschool programs of all time, being shown in a whopping 180 territories in 40 languages, along with having over a billion dollars worth of merchandise sold all around the world. But prior to being rerun on Nick Jr. in the 2010s, Peppa Pig was first shown to the American audience in 2005 with an American dub, in the ill-fated Cartoon Network preschool block, Tickle-U.
As Tickle-U only lasted a year and a half, the U.S. dub was lost along with the block. The only footage of the dub that has been found is a 30-second promo video from Tickle-U. All post-2007 U.S. releases and airings of the show use the U.K. dub, as the American dub received poor ratings.
Elaine Torres said that she voiced Suzy Sheep in the American broadcast. In addition, Chloe Dolandis has stated on her resume that she was the voice of Emily Elephant and Richard Rabbit. Rob Rackstraw was the voice of Daddy Pig. And Michael Brandon was the narrator and the voice of Grampy Rabbit. According to Dolandis' resume, the recording studio was Chrom Studios. Chrom Studios is a dubbing studio based in Miami, Florida.
Audio clips of Peppa, George, Mommy Pig, and Daddy Pig's American laughter can be heard in the game Swirlygig.
Elaine Torres' Voices.com profile includes a short clip of Suzy Sheep talking to Daddy Pig, as part of her animation/commercial reel.
In addition, a Tickle U promo for Peppa Pig using the American dub has been found.
