For us American fans, the 4Kids dub was our first Winx Club experience. We woke up around 7:30 a.m. to catch new episodes — or reruns, lots of reruns — every Saturday morning.
4KidsTV aired Winx from 2004 to 2008, then brought it back briefly a few years ago for the “finale.” That’s about half of the series’ ten years on TV.
But now that Nick owns the rights, the 4Kids dub is barely mentioned anymore. Quotes pop up now and then in games and on toy packaging, but that’s about it. It’s even hard to find the toys now. There were even DVDs still planned to be released. Not anymore.
What about the RAI English dub? Rainbow still uploads clips and episodes from it on their YouTube channel and on WinxClub.com. It’s also streamed on Netflix. And remember the season one boxset coming out in March? According to reports on Michael’s Winx Club, that will be the RAI English dub, too.
YOUR SAY: Is the 4Kids dub still an important part of Winx Club‘s history?
