A mediocre dubbing company known for making a mess of otherwise good anime shows (ex.; One-Piece,Tokyo Mew-Mew).And did a rather awful rendition of the "Star-Spangled Banner"(thank the gods they didn't do O Canada).And,Most recently,Turning the FOX network's Saturday mornings into an infomercial-wasteland.Do not be surprised if,come September,the same thing happens to the CW(formerly WB & UPN) network's Saturday mornings!

A US company that makes anime shows more kid-friendly. They ruined anime by changing the soundtracks, giving the characters silly voices (some are good though), and adding puns.

Shows like Sonic X, Yugioh, One Piece and Pokemon are some examples.

The company deserves to be buried deep under the earth.
Person A: Hi B. Whatcha doing?

*Dances*

Person A: I better split! This is getting scary!

A fucked up dubbing company bent on ridding the world of:
sanity
logic
sex
death
cigarettes
good voice acting
guns
Japanese text
English text
Japanese culture
English culture
answers
original music
originality
hatred
violence
original names
original Anime titles
rice balls
mini skirts
blood
uncut DVDs
plots
good dialog
and everything but fingers, water guns, lollipops, censorship, and eternal hellfire.

The COMPLETE OPPOSITE of a GOOD dubbing company such as FUNimation.

Also, see evil tyrannical company
Me: 4Kids is evil and stupid at the same time.

Comparison of 4Kids to FUNimation:
4Kids < FUNimation
1 < infinity

A shitty-ass company who bastardizes good anime.They have bastardized my favorite manga, Shaman King, and changed every single name to names that you would call your pet(take mortimer for instance)!And I have recently found out that they are about to bastardize yet ANOTHER one of my favorite mangas, Naruto. Thank god they havent gotten to Bleach or Hunter X Hunter yet(my other 2 fav mangas)! Seriously, who's with me to start an angry mob!!!

Also see: The Four Horsemen
Mortimer:Hey, Yoh, Have you seen 'lenny'?

Yoh:No, I think he died.

4Kids executives:No!!!! say something else!!!!

Yoh:He went on vacation 0_o

Company responsible for butchering the anime Shaman King. I picked up the manga and thought it was awesome but then watched the show in horror. Manta's name is now Mortimer (what did he do to deserve that name?) and Ren's name is replaced with Lenny. The horror! Ren sounds like a british priss now even though he's Chinese. Then 4kids thought, "Let's put a spanish accent on a Japanese guys! The fans should be really pissed now!"

Oh, and they just liscenced Naruto. What is this world coming to????
"Wow, look at the mob of horoxren fangirls storming 4kids HQ with hatchets and machine guns"

Although I myself do not enjoy the YU GI OH anime and/or manga, I sympathize with fans in saying "WHAT THE HELL DID YUGIOH DO TO DESERVE THIS?!"
Also, Shaman King fans, including myself, turn red in the face when they think of the butchered anime. Ren=Lenny. Manta=mortimer. Ryu=Rio. Anna sounds like a valley girl. She sounds like she will say "LYKE OMG A PRADA BAG" at any second. Manta sounds like a ... well ... gnome ... ? And Ryu ... *shudders* What is that? A french or Spanish accent? I sure as hell can't tell! Ren sounds like he's going off to tea and crumpets with the queen at any second instead of fighting.
I've seen the voice cast for Naruto and lemme tell ya ... praise insert divine being of worship here that the bastards at 4kids are finally getting the message to STOP KILLING ANIME!
"I've got an idea guys ... let's find anybody who speaks English as a first, second, or THIRD language, put them in a studio for anime ... purposely mismatch the mouthflaps!"
"OOOH OOOOOH!! I've got one, too! Let's change the names to the corniest ones we can think of!"
"YAY! And then we can call our company ..."
"4KIDS! CAUSE IT'S FOR KIDS! EVEN THOUGH IN JAPAN IT'S FOR TEENS! And kids these days think it's cool to substitute a '4' for the word 'for'"
"Yeah, guys, we're so cool"
