HISTORY

There are two Italian dubs of the Little Lulu anime, with the first being released in 1981 and the second being released in 1995.

In 1980, Italy was sold on ZIV International’s catalog of titles by Agrama Film Enterprises, founded by Frank Agrama, who would later open up Harmony Gold in 1983. Little Lulu was included in the bundle. The show was bought by VID (Video International Distributors).

The 1981 Italian dub is currently lost media. A very low quality rip of the opening was uploaded by Dailymotion user ‘maruse'.

In 1981, Heritage Cinematografica produced a movie for Italian cinemas that uiltizied several episodes of the Little Lulu anime. The movie was titled, “Le incredibili avventure della Piccola Lulú” (The Incredible Adventures of Little Lulu). New music was used in replacement of Mark Mercury's soundtrack. An entirely new theme created by Cesare Regazzoni and Massimo Chiodi was used in the opening and closing.

EMI Film released the movie on DVD in 2010. One of the origional posters was used for the cover. The DVD can still be bought on Amazon and other sites.

On June 20, 2019, Youtube channel ‘FilmIsNow Drive-In’ began to release short clips from the movie. In early 2020 however, the channel unlisted most of the clips that they originally uploaded. Fortunately on May 15, 2020, ‘FilmIsNow Drive-In’ brought the entire movie up on YouTube for free.

The second dub was done in 1995 by SD Cinematografica. An Italian cover of the English theme song was produced, with the company deciding to use Mark Mercury's soundtrack. The video quality is in 480p resolution with mono sound. This dub can be viewed on our YouTube channel and on the Internet Archive.
