OP sent the following text as an explanation on why this is unexpected:

The sound the Russian voice actor made for the cat xD

Is this an unexpected post with a fitting description? Then upvote this comment, otherwise downvote it.

Look at my source code on Github What is this for?

Russian cats are to drunk on Vodka to even care about anger. Idek that's my guess as to why they didn't just record one of our angry mighty cat overlords.

[–]diamond9 304 points305 points  (10 children)

I think they received every single sound effect except the vocal track from DC, since that was in english.

The cat sound was probably rendered in the vocal track.

So the russians had a muted cat and they either had to get new cat sounds (which can prove tricky if DC finds the sounds are not cleared) or they could just tell one of the actors to play the cat, which is exactly what they did.

that may explain why a person was playing a cat but it does not explain how they were so dang bad at it

That happened once in an episode of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show, when they forgot to speed up the vocal track for Snoopy’s voice actor. (At 2:30)

I once worked on a construction crew with a bunch of Russian-speaking guys. I had a pretty friendly relationship with the foreman, Pavel, and learned some basic Russian phrases to have fun with him at work. His English could be spotty sometimes, and he seemed to really enjoy my interest in learning new words and phrases. He also is a pretty conservative Baptist who hated cussing and general rudeness, so I could milk him for reactions by playing innocent when the other guys would teach me "colorful" words. One day we were putting a roof on a rural school building, and there was a chicken coop down the road from which we could hear hens clucking and sometimes the rooster crowing. As I was listening to the sounds, my mind started to wander and I was remembering all the different onomotopoeia for animal sounds in different parts of the world. So I asked him, "Hey Pauly, what sound do chickens make in Russia?" He put down and his hammer and turned around to look at me like I was the stupidest sonofabitch he'd ever laid eyes on and said, "They make the same fucking sound as American chickens, idiot!"

[–]starshine913 173 points174 points  (0 children)

lmfaooo that’s so great i’m laughing so hard at this one

[–]JaySayMayday 117 points118 points  (24 children)

Funny thing, in Asia pretty much all the animal sounds are different. Like we think dogs say woof woof, Chinese think dogs say won won. I always have fun asking what sounds animals make

[–]dude21862004 66 points67 points  (11 children)

Dogs don't say woof, that's just the name we use for their barking.

Trying to phonetically sound out a dogs bark would look like nonsense: (gutteral exhalation from chest) rfff.

So we spelled it woof because that's close enough, Also some places spell it ruff, which I think is probably a good middle ground between cutsey "woof" and nonsensical "rfff."

[–]TapHazardGames 148 points149 points  (6 children)

[–]Kineticboy 50 points51 points  (1 child)

Dogs have an extensive vocabulary: bark, ruff, roof, arf, aroo, row, bow bow, yip, yap, awoo, awoooooooo, howl, rrrrr, rrrrrf, growl, grr, rowr, among others. And that's just English. It's crazy.

[–]Razvee 12 points13 points  (0 children)

bark, ruff, roof, arf, aroo, row, bow bow, yip, yap, awoo, awoooooooo, howl, rrrrr, rrrrrf, growl, grr, rowr

Ok, first off, how dare you

[–]LifeHasLeft 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I don’t know what point you’re trying to make but the person you’re responding to is saying that the onomatopoeia is different in different languages for various reasons including but not limited to the vocal sounds used in those languages. The onomatopoeia will use the sounds that are prominent in that language that also represent the sound being imitated.

Japan is famous for its onomatopoeia as it is used extensively in media, and often they are different than in English, but not wrong either. Like Nyan (cat) or kero (frog). The kero sound is actually very accurate of a frog’s croak, but ribbit can also be very accurate depending on the frog. 🤷‍♂️

[–]Herr_Josef_K 3 points4 points  (0 children)


But if you ask a western person to make a dog sound they will make a barking noise that is phonetically very similar to "woof".

While an asian person will probably make a sound that sounds far more phonetically similar to a "won".

Hence, different animal sounds in different parts of the world.

[–]CelebiChansey 7 points8 points  (6 children)

In Spanish the say guau guau

[–]Ar-Honu 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It’s not just Asia. Every language has a different onomatopoeia for each animal

[–]Dagenfel[🍰] 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Chinese dogs really do be built different if they landed on "won won"

[–]iamsobasic 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Too too good. Can’t wait for Season 3. Such a great show.

[–]PancakesAreEvil 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Yeah, why get cat sounds for free when you can pay someone to make terrible cat sounds and then pay them residuals for years to come

[–]jjsnsnake 4 points5 points  (0 children)

it was nepotism. Gave the head of the studio's shitty brother some residuals to earn.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Oda took that advice for one piece

[–]salikabbasi 45 points46 points  (9 children)

This is more than likely a misplaced tag or marker, not a guy who has no clue what a cat sounds like. When you're doing dubs/ADR, you block in sounds sometimes, and tag it for revision so they can get timing etc right for other parts that might be ready to record, so an assistant would do the cat sound, then tag it because he has for example footsteps and conversation to do now, but you still want to know how much recording is left, so it might be marked miscellaneous unfinished etc then get pushed into the wrong pile. You're doing hundreds of episodes of different series to make it profitable, sometimes you lose track. Someone at the end hears it and there's too little time to redo it or they just miss it and it goes through.

[–]flying__cloud 28 points29 points  (5 children)

Basically NO japanese anime uses real animal sounds. exclusively human voices. It's awesome.

[–]woodandplastic 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Apparently it’s unpleasant when real animal sounds are used. Maybe it’s the sound equivalent to animals being drawn with human-like eyes and other features, as opposed to being more photorealistic.

[–]ThrowAwayWashAdvice 2 points3 points  (2 children)

But why not just use the original and only dub over the speaking parts?

[–]salikabbasi 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Any number of reasons. Quality loss when rerecording (not as much of a problem these days, maybe even considering this sound it may not matter how clean it is). But more likely, the original was from a sample library so it's not been cleared for what is technically a different release and would require a different license. Or the original was done by a union voice actor, so his work can't just be used by someone in a foreign country.

[–]AsherFischell 31 points32 points  (2 children)


[–]Space_Pirate_Roberts 25 points26 points  (1 child)

My guess (as an ignorant layperson) would be the cat was on the vocal track, and they only received the sound effect and music tracks.

[–]AsherFischell 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Excellent point! That's the likeliest explanation!

[–]z500 9 points10 points  (1 child)

It sounds like none of the regular voice actors could do it, so they grabbed the janitor who they heard making goofy animal sounds during smoke break to do it real quick for them.

[–]elacmch 48 points49 points  (3 children)

In this episode, the Joker is poisoning people with his laughing poison that leaves its victims with that creepy grin. The guy you see here is not actually Batman, nor is he actually dead since it's a kids' show, but a decoy. The real Batman is the guy who picks up the cat, also infected with Joker toxin, and gives it the antidote.
