Logo when dubbing the anime

5 years after the company ceased dubbing the Pokémon anime, 4Kids Entertainment has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. 4Kids controlled the English dub of the Pokémon anime from the first episode (1998) through the eighth season (2005).

Fans' views on 4Kids's dubbing of the anime are varied - some prefer the 4Kids dub, some wish it had never happened. No matter which side, the transition was hard for most fans, as nearly all voice actors were changed (some recently have made a return, a few reprising previous roles).
