Digimon Adventure (known as Digimon: Digital Monsters (Season 1) in the English dub) is the first anime TV series of the Digimon franchise, which tells the story of eight children from Japan who are transported to the Digiworld to save it with their partner Digimon. It was produced by Toei Animation and originally aired in Japan from March 7, 1999 to March 26, 2000 on Fuji TV.

Dubbing History

The English dub was licensed by Saban Entertainment and originally aired in the U.S. from August 1999 to June 2000 on the FOX network's FOX Kids block (the home of Saban's various Power Rangers series). The English dub was to compete with the Pokémon episodes dubbed by 4Kids Entertainment. The English version featured an original soundtrack from Saban's in-house musicians (as with Power Rangers and the initial Ocean dub of Dragon Ball Z) and made changes to character names, as well as edits pertaining to certain aspects such as violence to make the series more suitable for younger audiences.

More than 15 years later, many of the English dub's voice cast for the main characters (both human and Digimon) would reprise their roles for the anime film series Digimon Adventure tri., which was licensed by Eleven Arts instead of Saban and featured the Japanese soundtrack (with the exception of the opening theme), including the original evolution sequence insert song, "Brave Heart", from the Japanese version of the TV series. Most of the same dub cast also returned for the 2020 anime movie Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna.

A little-known alternate dub was produced in the Philippines for airing in Southeast Asia.
