A stupid Anime-dubbing that uses Babelfish for translation. Hires shitty voice actors that sound like crap.
4Kids couldn't translate Japanese if their lives depended on it

Known fully as "4KIDS Entertainment", it is rumored that 4KIDS is made up of former Rankin-Bass employees (known for classics like the claymation Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer). Once they broke off of Rankin-Bass, they became an anime dubbing company. Their first property was Nintendo's Pokemon, which quickly gained the company massive amounts of fame, and, of course, money. They soon went on to get Cubix, Yu-Gi-Oh, and, eventually, they bought out Saban's FoxKids Saturday Morning Block and transformed it into their own FoxBox (now known as "4KIDS.tv").

They are a company to the core, and as such, care about one thing alone: the bottom line. The Bottom Line for 4KIDS is profit. They will seek maximum profit in any way whatsoever. Usually, this involves drastically altering the anime license they have - re-writing all the dialogue, re-composing all the music, and generally editing the content so heavily it's difficult to comprehend what the show was originally like.
One of the worst cases of this is One Piece; a show featuring lots of graphic violence, centered around Luffy - a boy who battles his way to become the King of the Pirates. 4KIDS has turned this show into an embarassment, all for the Bottom Line.

The butcher of animeThe make the show more American friendly so they are
offended when the see some thing on the tv program that
they find upsetting I live in America and I getting a little sick
of all the changes in anime that 4Kids makes when they
get it licensed over here. I hae got all my comp isp address block
try to fix Wikipedia’s definition for them but had it changed back to what
it said originally. If you are a major hater of this company then you know
what I am talking about when I say 4kids must crash and burn to the ground
and have to major fine for ruining great anime when they tried to make them more
American friendly. If this is America where we have freedom of speech and so on
What is wrong with a little upsetting tv. If you do not like whats on just change the
Channel.
4Kids have decently ruined Ojamajo Doremi by calling it Magical DoReMi and absolutely butchered it with the dubing and translations.

A shitty dubbing company that enjoys turning good anime into piles of crap. The people at 4kids don't care about the fans of the anime that they are dubbing and only care about making more money for themselves. They take anime that has mature content and turn it into a kiddie show. Because of 4kids, the anime One Piece is the most looked downed anime in America. They replaced One Piece's good humor with unfunny and childish puns, removed all blood and death, changed some of the characters' names, changed guns to super soakers, replaced the awesome background music with music that will make you want to puke, replaced the opening with idiotic rap, and took out a bunch of arcs that will later become important to the story.

4kids also ruined Tokyo Mew Mew. They changed the name to Mew Mew Power because, according to 4kids, Japan doesn't exist. All of the characters' names are changed and some scenes are removed. Tokyo Mew Mew is about protecting the environment and love, but 4kids removed the whole "protecting the environment" part and made Mew Mew Power be about an annoying love sick girl.

In every anime that 4kids has touched, they removed all Japanese writing and food and made the setting not in Japan, but in America. According to 4kids, little children will be traumatized for life if they as so much as take one look at Japanese culture. In conclusion, 4kids needs to burn in Hell and let better companies dub anime the right way.
4kids leader: Oh, look! There's a very popular anime in Japan called "One Piece!" Let's get the rights to dub it!

4kids worker: But sir! This anime has blood, violence, a good plot, and Japanese stuff in it! We can't show this to our audience!

4kids leader: Don't worry! We'll just butcher it by removing everything Japanese, giving the characters really bad voice actors, and removing all blood! The kids will never notice the difference! We'll make lots of money because we are greedy bastards!

A retarded voice casting and dubbing studio, hell bent on ahnialating all trace of seriousness in any anime they touch, adding stupid dialogue, changing characters and story, censoring things for no reason(or not very good reasons) and editing things gratuitously, also believing women are not meant ot have breasts.

Also do not pay attention, and make many blunders.
