Cast / Crew

On this page, you'll find the names of the actors who provided the English voices for the main characters, and the crew, for the original 1970s dubbing, as well as for the 2004 dubbing. Needless to say, the voices for all the other characters, demons etc. were great too - but I can't list them all! Have you ever noticed the extremely high-pitched English dubbed voices of all the children in Monkey? (obviously some grown-ups trying to speak as cheesily and high as possible). Anyway, all this goes to give Monkey its lasting appeal, and I'm sure the dubbing cast had a great time dubbing Monkey.

If you know (or have any ideas) about who did the English dubbing for any of the other characters in Monkey, let me know using the Monkey Feedback page, and I'll put the information here.

To see the full onscreen credits for all 13 unseen Monkey episodes, please see the Monkey Dubbing - Unseen Episodes Dubbing in 2004 - Full Cast List page.

The table below shows all the cast for the original 1970s dubbing, as well as the cast for the 2004 dubbing. Click on each of the names for biographical information.
