Censorship[edit | edit source]
In Brazil, the film had two dubs, the first is thought of as a plot for adults. The second dubbing was done when the cartoon based on the movie was made. The voice actors hired to do the Brazilian dubbing made a new version of the dubbing of the film, many adult things from the dialogue were removed.
