"Dr. Slump" title card

The Long Forgotten English Dub was a dub by Harmony Gold USA that attempted to bring Dr. Slump & Arale-Chan to English speaking countries in 1984. They changed the title to Dr. Slump Show, edited scenes, and renamed every character except Arale. They showed a trailer of the dub, but it was never picked up. Harmony Gold also dubbed the first five episodes of Dragon Ball, along with the 1st and 3rd film, the latter of which, Mystical Adventure, incorporated material from Dr. Slump in its story. Arale was voiced by Cheryl Chase in this dub.
