Release

Main article: Slump Box
The original 1980s series ("Dr. Slump Arale-chan") will be released on Region 2 DVD in Japan in two parts. The "N'cha collection" was released in March 2007.[1] The "Hoyoyo Collection" was released in September 2007. The Series is available on Amazon Prime and Japanese Hulu.

English Distribution

It is unknown if the anime will be dubbed in the English language, even though it was licensed by Harmony Gold, but only had a segment of a single episode dubbed before the company lost the rights shortly after. A Discotek Dub seems possible at the moment since members that work at Discotek expressed interest in dubbing the series but nothing is confirmed as of 2018. A fandub was supposed to be made by KingMation Productions but canceled due to it being lost. The trailer is next to the link for the Harmony Gold dub. After fans did some research, we now know there was an English Dub of both series made by Animax for Cartoon Network Asia with Michael C. Pizzuto voicing Dr. Senbei Norimaki. Pizzuto confirmed that they made at least a little more than 23 episodes of each series. None of the movies were dubbed and the dub was released back in 2005 but had a broadcast again back in 2016 with the premiere of the dub for the 1997 series.
