Pretty Cure, also referred to as Futari wa Pretty Cure, is a Japanese anime series created by Toei Animation and Bandai that aired for 49 episodes between February 2004 and January 2005 on TV Asahi. The series was followed up by a 47 episode sequel that ran from January 2005 through February 2006 called Pretty Cure: Max Heart.

Pretty Cure debuted in the English speaking western world in 2009 with an English dub commissioned by Toei Animation and produced by Ocean Productions, but an entirely separate English dub of the first two series were created for the Singaporean market years earlier. It debuted in the country on MediaCorp Central's Kids Central programming block on April 1, 2006.[1] Pretty Cure: Max Heart followed on July 21, 2007.[2][Notes 1] The dubs were produced on behalf of Odex at Voiceovers Unlimited and had a voice cast featuring Chio Su Ping, Meriem Bekka, Chelsea Curto, Edward Choy Keng Choong, Hillary Blazer-Doyle, Sean McCabe, and Denise Tan.[3][4][5][6]

No clips of this dub have surfaced online and it's not known if it was ever released on home video. Odex produced anime DVDs and VCDs for the Singaporean market during the time frame, but no releases for the series are listed on archived versions of their website, nor have any retailers indicated they once carried such a product.

A number of episode titles specific to this dub have been recovered:
