Solar Adventure or Roboteuwang Sseonsyakeu also the Digimon finish dub by that one company. Also some series that were dubbed early when anime was still new to America had horrible echo noises and terrible voice acting to top it off.

I don't know, you could have Sugita do every single voice in that one and it would still manage to suck ass (though it would at least sound interesting). But I blame the suckage mostly on Obari and his inability to draw anything that isn't a giant robot.

I wouldn't say the whole thing was bad, but there were parts and characters in Needless that were pretty terrible sounding - Aruka Schild and Solva for some specific examples

The worst dub I've seen is Dark Cat. Really, the voice acting in the English dub of that OVA ranges from "meh" to "horrendous" (with one voice in particular being especially infamous).

The Descendants of Darkness dub was also pretty bad (though maybe not quite as bad as Dark Cat's dub). When the best voice actor you have is Dan Green of all people, you know that your dub is in trouble. To be fair, Dan Green does do a decent job, but most of the other voice actors either do a mediocre/terrible job or they simply don't fit their characters.

An honorable mention to Naruto, that voice made the show unwatchable. And i'm glad some one else said Descendants Of Darkness

My votes are for Ninja Scroll, Bastard! & Samurai Deeper Kyo.

I honestly found the Gintama Benizakura arc retelling movie dub to be cringeworthy. Poor Shinpachi's voice

Eureka Seven. The va for the main character was like nails on a chalk board. I would have lost it if he had exclaimed "golly gee!" because that was some leave it to beaver style acting.

My choice would be a toss up between the original Speed Racer/Mach GoGoGo and Ghost Stories.

In defense of the latter, though, the show was crap to begin with and the dub makes it hilarious at times, but the ad lib jokes are sometimes so cheesy you can't help but facepalm.

I actually like the dub of Ninja Scroll. Jubei's voice I think fits him very well, and he doesn't sound like some 18-year old pretty boy, but rather like an older badass who's seen some shit. Plus, this might well be the greatest pre-kill one-liner ever:

I agree that his voice was pretty bad, especially for the black ranger. But I can't help but admire him for exploring his vocal potential and choosing a voice that's so alien in comparison to his normal VAing in other media.

despite the fact that Funamation has increased the quality of dubs overall some of their's are pretty god awful, though I'd have to either go with Garzey's Wing ("my sword is unbelievably dull!") or that weird Ero movie about the crusades (can't for the life of me remember the name). Than there are of course all of the 4Kids dubs were they not only changed lines but entire scenes and used some of the worst voice actors in the business.

As for Ghost stories, that show had a bad dub but it was so bad it was good.
