Dingo Pictures (partially lost animated films from German animation studio and English dubs; 1992-2005)
Dingo Pictures is an animation company from Germany that produced traditionally-animated cartoons based on fairy tales and concepts plagiarizing the works of Disney, Pixar and DreamWorks.
These cartoons are highly regarded as some of the worst animated films ever, with extremely low-budget animation (done with Amiga Deluxe Paint), repetitive dialogue, lack of dub actors (only two people voice all the characters, in some cartoons only one), and shoddy character designs.
In spite of this, they acquired a certain level of ironic fan following.
With the exceptions of Griechische Sagen: Perseus and their picture stories, all of the original German dubs have been released on DVD. Some can be easily found online, while others are quite rare, with Im Tal der Osterhasen and Die Kleine Hexe Arischa being the rarest.
With the exception of Peter Vs. the Wolf, The Lion King of the Jungle and Hercules, all the English dubs listed below have been released on DVD by Fun Kids in France and East-West Entertainment (with the exception of The Bremen Town-Musicians) in the United States. Seventeen of the movies' English dubs have also been released on various game consoles such as the PlayStation and PlayStation 2 by Midas Interactive and Phoenix Games, accompanied with simple mini-games such as slide puzzles. The three other movies have been given English dubs by another company, though the existence of those dubs have been debated by some.
A popular comedic online reviewer, Phelous (Phelan Porteous), has made video reviews of many of those Dingo Pictures films. He notably makes efforts to get the official English-language release DVD to use as footage in his videos. While he has managed to get his hands on a couple of rare ones, he had yet to make the full English dub of these public, though other users did much later.
