the step of Fernando Tejero for ‘El hormiguero’ has made Espinof remember when the actor dubbed the main character of ‘El espantatiburones’. A painful example that in our country there are times when there is no hesitation in sacrificing professionalism for the sake of popularity. Below we offer you several more cases that should never have happened. And beware, not all are in animated productions.

An incredibly popular duo, the only explanation for their hiring given the catastrophic result.
Andrés Iniesta in ‘Pirates!’ (‘The Pirates! Band of Misfits’)
A classic of intrusiveness: The dubbing of Andrés Iniesta in ̶A̶m̶i̶g̶o̶s̶ ̶d̶e̶l̶ ̶c̶o̶m̶e̶r̶c̶i̶o̶ “Pirates!” (2012) pic.twitter.com/jXxKf32d2q

His goal gave us a World Cup, but that does not mean that it was very painful to see how he dubbed a secondary character in this nice movie from Aardman. Especially painful that this led to the sneaking of a “Long live Fuentealbilla!“In the Spanish version…

David Broncano in ‘Who is killing the puppets?’ (‘The Happytime Murders’)
Let’s not forget that the full promo for ‘Who’s Killing the Puppets?’ It was based on Broncano doubling three sentences. pic.twitter.com/V57LRX9uXs

It was still a mere commercial strategy to take his fans to the movies, but the presenter of ‘The Resistance’ made it clear here that he was much funnier when he went his way than as a dubbing actor.

Fernando Tejero in ‘The shark scarecrow’ (‘Shark Tale’)
The actor was at the peak of his stardom thanks to ‘No one lives here’, something that was wanted to be exploited here to the point of putting his ‘a little please‘, something that, obviously, Will Smith does not say in the original version.
Itzan Escamilla and Sergio Mur in ‘Memories of Idhún’
Netflix chose Elite actors for the dubbing of Memorias de Idhún, and it did not even have the approval of the author of the saga, who wanted professionals. In the cast, the only professional was Michelle Jenner, and the result was this… pic.twitter.com/Jgun4ui1ab

Even the author of the work herself showed her anger with the Spanish dubbing finally chosen by Netflix. There are more who do a questionable job, but Escamilla and, above all, Mur take the cake.

Lola Indigo in ‘Space Jam: New Legends’ (‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’)
Here is the comparison of the before and after of Lola Bunny in Spanish with the trailers that have been published, what do you think? pic.twitter.com/n1KFZhD2BR

The famous singer was in charge of lending voice to Lola Bunny, thus assuming the same role as Zendaya in the original version. The result shows that dubbing is not his thing, especially if we also have the example of how it would have been with a professional to make comparisons.

Melendi in ‘How to train your dragon 3’ (‘How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World’)

The singer premiered here as a dubbing actor with frankly improvable results, to the point that he himself expressed his doubts about the final result during the same promotional campaign. In the original version of him, his voice belonged to F. Murray Abraham.
