    Man, he did a good job voicing Rad, even though that character sucked.

    TIL there's a Canadian dub of Dragonball Z. Different voice actors. Scott Mcneil as Piccolo and Buu.
    RIP Kirby, you were the Raddest Hot Shot in the galaxy. 47 is way too young to go.

    Yep. That's the version I first saw as a kid. I got into Dragon Ball probably by the second rerun of Z on Toonami. Back when Moltar hosted it. It was about a year of reruns until the in-house FUNimation cast took over, but as a kid, it felt like years!

    That voice cast continued around the time Trunks showed up in Canada and the UK under the company called Westwood Media. Kirby Morrow took over the role sometime in the Cell arc there.

    I didn't grow up with the latter, living in the United States, but it's something that I've always had lots of interest in, because when I was young I always wondered what the in-house cast episodes would be like if they were handled the same as the Ocean cast episodes I saw first, so when I saw a random clip on some fansite back in 2001 with the Canadian cast, I was very confused and intrigued at the same time.

    Oh yeah, the Ocean/Pioneer dub. That was the first dub to hit the states before Funimation took over. The voice of Cheetor (forgot his name) initially voiced Goku. I didn't know the Ocean cast continued for the Canadian release. Interesting how all of that works.

    The Canadian dub is where the "Over 9000!!!" meme originated, with Brian Drummond's Vegeta.

    We have recently died a famous actor and record holder fit roles and voice actor Armen Dzhigarkhanyan (1935 - 2020). But not because of the coronavirus.

    His famous voice acting as a wolf from the cartoon "Zhil byl pos" (Once upon a time there was a dog).

    Page in my autograph book (vol. 2) and a photo of Hot Shot (though it depicted the Armada look--ah, well...)

    RIP to a talent that voiced so many characters. He had a great distinct voice and was great as Rad, Hot Shot, Cyclops, and more. As someone who grew up in the 2000s his voice was a part of my childhood.
