That wasn't originally supposed to look like Gamera was the one yelling, but the comic ABSOLUTELY funnier that way.

Okay, this'll require a little explanation. When ADV released an english dub of Gamera 2: Attack of Legion, they got it into their heads to also do a joke dub where nearly all the characters are dumb, crude rednecks. Like, if What's Up Tigerlily? had been done by Jeff Foxworthy. It's crass and stupid and drags out a lot of jokes waaaay too long... but it's still a marvel to behold. It appeared as a bonus feature of the ADV DVDs but has been out of print ever since. I must stress, since it's very hard for me to wrap my head around this, that this is NOT a fan dub by a bunch of Team Four Star wannabes. This was an officially produced dub, by professional voice actors, working with the official blessing of Daiei Films, that was released on real official DVDs.

...and yeah, I wasn't wearing my Dr. Forrester costume that night. To the "let's all watch a Gamera movie and make jokes" panel. I was doing EVERYTHING wrong at this con.

This reminds me of Ghost Stories. It was an anime that didn't do well in Japan for various reasons, so they basically gave the dub team free reign to make up whatever they wanted with only a few requirements. The results are wonderful!

Yeah, this happens more often than a lot of people think (did somebody mention Samurai Pizza Cats?)
