The New Adventures of Kimba The White Lion (ジャングル大帝 Janguru/Jungle-Taitei?) is an anime television series produced by Tezuka Productions that first ran from October 12, 1989, to October 11, 1990, on TV Tokyo. It is a remake of Osamu Tezuka's 1960s anime series Kimba the White Lion.[1]

Original Japanese cast[edit]

English dub cast[edit]

In 1998 which was nearly a decade after the original Japanese release, The Ocean Group had gotten the rights to produce an English dub of the series and used an all-star Canadian voice cast, with the English dubbed episodes released on VHS tapes that were distributed by Pioneer Family Entertainment (which then became Geneon Universal which is now known as NBCUniversal Entertainment Japan as of today) in North America. However, the episodes were heavily edited during the production of the dub.

Unfortunately, Only 13 episodes were dubbed in English and was left on a cliffhanger, due to the poor quality of the dubbing. Episodes 2 and 3 have not been dubbed for the English-speaking market, thus having Episode 1 and 4 through 15 dubbed.
