Speed Dubbing

Sci-Fi Japan has got a great interview with anime legend Peter Fernandez, who is of course well known for his writing, directing, and dubbing work on the English version of Speed Racer. Before Speed Racer came alog, Peter wrote English scripts for the 1960's version of Astro Boy, and as he explains in this interview, was paid only $100 an episode for the work!

It's a fantastic interview that provides a great look at those early days of dubbing some cool classic shows. Check it out right here!

And while you're at it, take a look at Peter's MySpace page too!
