Apparently, it's a cartoon from 2006 that aired in some parts of the country, but I don't know if it aired in the US. Wikipedia lists it with one voice cast (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Eyes!) but IMDb lists it with another cast (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1046494/). I can't find any clips of it to confirm. I wanted to add it to Voicechasers, but I didn't know which was correct. Was the series recorded twice in English?

Wikipedia mentions it's currently airing on Nicktoons... I just did a search for the title on my DVR, but couldn't find it.

Is this it? http://www.animationmagazine.net/article/8224#

Looks like Candi Milo is the lead.

And, interesting... Porchlight's official site has different cast information. Maybe that's the UK cast?

Looking up Jules de Jongh, it mentions she now resides in the UK. Regine Candler seems to do a lot of UK audiobook recordings, and Tom Clarke Hill's official site has a London address.

Yeah, assuming the Wikipedia info is correct (and that's often not a safe assumption), this looks like a localized dub. That may seem odd but it's become a trend (see the replacement of US celebrity stuntcasting for cameos/bits in Shrek 2," "Robots," and "Cars" with UK stuntcasting for cameos/bits).

Or for that matter and on the other side of the coin, the American-sounding "Bob the Builder" (though until recently and Greg Proops taking over the lead, the recording was done in London using Americans and Canadians to replace the overtly British accents). "Doogal" is another example (first done in French, I think, or as a co-production, with British celebs, but almost all were replaced for the US version save Ian McKellen.)
