I could think of some shows that do great jobs with dubbing.

Cowboy Bebop
Trigun
FMA
Ghost in the Shell
Gankutsuou
Gunslinger Girl
Gun X Sword
Spice and Wolf
Darker than Black
Lucky Star
Azumanga Daioh
Samurai 7
Noir
Outlaw Star
Ergo Proxy
Le Chevalier D'eon

Probably missing a few.

And I have an anime which I prefer the opening song in English to the Japanese.
Key the Metal Idol.

Ghost in the Shell, Hellsing Ultimate, Gurren Lagann, Eureka Seven are the ones I can think of. Maybe Blood+ but I haven't heard the Japanese VA for it.

Many people disagree with this but I think the Naruto English voice actors are quite good. Its probably because I started with it on Toonami and when I try and watched subbed it is just not the same.

I haven't watched a dub since Death Note, but I much rather subs, so I guess that's why. Can't think of one I'd rather dubbed because subs are always better in my opinion.

The only anime that I think had a good/closely related dub was Gundam Seed. The voices flowed well with the characters. Not had any luck since then trying to find a good "dub" so I refuse to watch any now.

Plus I think it's better to watch it Subbed. To me, I believe the voices in japanese were how the director wanted the characters to sound. Then when the anime is dubbed into English, it's like they hire any John Doe for $5 to speak into a mic, usually ruining the experience for me.

Only took 6 posts to get this response. lol.

I will never say that a sub or dub is better until I've watched the show in each and judged them objectively on a show by show basis.

That being said I'm with the TC on this, I've watched so much that I couldn't come up with all the names right now. But I've got to say that Spice & Wolf and Heroic Age were the two that got me to realize just how far dubs have come since the early 90's. As well as being 2 titles that I find the dub to be better than the sub.

Beck, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Noir, Baccano!, Hellsing/Hellsing Ultimate, Death Note, Black Lagoon, Pokemon, Wolf's Rain, Sgt Frog, Princess Mononoke.
Also, special mention to FLCL, which I enjoyed the dub of that quite a lot but wouldn't say I prefer it. Overall, I love dubs, though. I just don't really look at them as "better" than originals, more like equals/alternatives.

From what I've seen I'd say Baccano and Hellsing Ultimate. I don't have a problem with dubs as long as they're done well and I haven't seen one that I thought was bad. The only time was when I was searching for Hunter X Hunter videos on youtube and I saw the dub of the older show, that was horrible.

I normally prefer subs, but I'll second Cowboy Bebop and Baccano!

I couldn't say whether I prefer Black Lagoon dubbed, when I had my Funimation Elite subscription, I watched marathoned the subbed episodes on my Roku without even checking the dubs. But I very much liked the voice actress who played Revy Two Hand in the Japanese original.

Inuyasha. Rin is a LOT more adorable in the dubs because of one line:
"You should practice and learn to turn each one of your sighs into pretty little flowers. Because then there will be flowers EVERYWHERE!!!"
