マンフィーのふしぎなぼうけん: The Japanese version of Magic Adventures of Mumfie
mimitchi33
I was browsing NicoNico Douga yesterdy looking for Pretty Cure Max Heart commercials and wondered "Hey, Percyfan94 on deviantART said he recalled seeing a Japanese Mumfie clip a while ago-maybe it's still on Nico, but not on YouTube?", so I typed "マンフィーのふしぎなぼうけん" into the searchbar and saw that there was a video of the first episode on there. I was excited, and thus, I watched it. Even though I was getting the Japanese VHS of the series, I was worried that I would be disappointed with this dub like I was with the Japanese versions of Teddy Ruxpin (as one YouTuber put it, Grubby sounds like a dying cow, plus Teddy couldn't hit high notes) and Garfield and Friends (not only for messing up the order of the quickies, but for cutting out U.S. Acres for no reason-it's not like it's Malaysia where pigs are seen as evil). The dub also has a few familiar voice actors- Kei Tomiyama (the original Japanese voice of Bugs Bunny) plays Scarecrow, Sakura Tange (Sakura Kinomoto from Cardcaptor Sakura) plays Pinkey and Michie Tomizawa (Rei Hino/Sailor Mars from Sailor Moon) played the Electric Eel. The mother of voice actress Megumi Han (Hime Shirayuki/Cure Princess from HappinessCharge Pretty Cure), Keiko Han, narrates the series. The video I found has been uploaded to YouTube. I plan on buying the other VHS tapes of Mumfie in Japanese due to this. This will be updated with each VHS tape I get from this series, or if more of these show up on NicoNico Douga.

How To Spot Fake Disney's Frozen Merchandise

NOTE: This article was written for desperate parents and collectors who want the merchandise, as well as for groups like Unfrozen Trading Friends. I do not own any of the merchandise, I am using pictures of it for reference to help readers get an idea of bootleg merchandise.
Remember the Cabbage Patch Kids craze of 1983, the Tickle Me Elmo craze of 1996 or the Zhu Zhu Pets craze of 2009? That's what's going on with the merchandise of Disney's Frozen. And as with any popular item, there are bound to be bootlegs. Unfortunately, not only are these items unofficial, but they might have horrible chemicals in them, have lead paint painted onto them, or if it's a plush toy, may be stuffed with dangerous materials. This guide will show you some examples of bootlegs of merchandise from this movie, and will give you tips on how to avoid bootlegs.
