Synopsis

Ten years after the events of the original series, Dogtanian is now married to Juliette with two children. The Muskehounds are suddenly reunited when the Queen calls upon them when her husband, King Louis XIII, starts acting strangely. From there, the Muskehounds soon unravel a devious plot to dethrone the King.


Dubbing History

The Return of Dogtanian was dubbed in 1990 by Intersound, which had previously dubbed the original series. The dub was directed by Dave Mallow and Doug Stone, who also co-adapted the original scripts to English, as well as took over as the voices of Dogtanian, and Porthos, respectively.

Despite being dubbed by the same company, the majority of the English voice cast was replaced, even though voice actors from the original series are still present voicing other characters (namely Daniel Woren, who voiced Rochefort in the original series, now voicing Cardinal Richelieu). The few voice actors retained include Rebecca Forstadt as Juliette, Steve Kramer as Pip, and Mike Reynolds as Widimer.
