"Congratulations!" across 24 foreign dubs

I made a video showcasing the "Congratulations" scene across 24 different foreign dubs:

I put a lot of time into compiling and editing this and I hope you enjoy! Foreign dubs aren't something a lot of people put stock into but I think it can be really interesting hearing all the different interpretations of a scene. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to compile every dub here, but I added in every dub I could find. (If you know where to find a dub I'm missing, let me know!)

Edit:
Here's the scene in Cantonese:

There are two Cantonese dubs; I don't know which one this is.

Good work!
I wonder why half of the dubs localized Pen-Pen.

A friend mentioned to me that it might've been because Pen-Pen's voice was on the dialogue track and not the SFX track, making it time-consuming and expensive to edit his Japanese voice back in in the age of analogue recording. It was probably just simpler to redub him.
That's just a theory, though, and I'll admit I don't know much about that facet of things. I will say, for whatever it's worth, that something similar happened with King, Nadia's pet lion in Nadia: the Secret of Blue Water, where he got redubbed in quite a few dubs.

This scene is just so wholesome and heart warming :heart: It's great to watch it to such so long extend!

Spike spencer and Casey Mongillo kinda have the same Shinji voice, don't they? I did'nt notice the difference until the name "Casey" showed up in the comment in another video :redface:

Aaaah, Donald Reignoux (French voice actor pretty known in France for a lot of his voices actings on cartoons and animes and stuff) was such a good Shinji :crush: It did fit Shinji sooo well! It would have been Shinji voice if he was French :D

Slightly off topic, but not worth a whole new thread (I've done a quick scan, but haven't found anyone posting this yet) --
