Bob the Builder Scandal!

As part of our Sunday Family day with the children we are watching Bob the Builder - Celebrate with Bob. The children remember watching some of this back home and it was Clare's turn to pick a movie.

Shock! Horror! The local version is dubbed with American voices. No longer do Bob, Wendy and all the gang have fine English accents. They are pronouncing their "R"s like every good American!

Not only the voices are changed, but also some of the words to reflect the local names for things. Also, some of the equipment has changed sex to female or children's voices rather than adult males. All very odd to our ears expecting what we remember.
