Oh wait, they do that with Anime.
AND THATS WHY DUBBING SUX RITE!?!
Well, it wasn't unheard of. From the beginning of media entertainment to the '90s, things were changed for Europe a lot. For example, I'm pretty sure G.I. Joe had an entirely different name (Action Force?), and the enemy was "Red Force" and not Cobra, I believe. I somehow have doubts that Captain America was left as is, and they removed the "Sonic Says" segments of AoStH, which usually consisted of American things (e.g. Call 911). And let's not forget Contra/Probotector... well, that was Japanese, but still.
