The original English voice for Vegeta returns in Dragon Ball Super cameo


When Dragon Ball Super returns with new episodes on Toonami next weekend, an old voice will return with it. Guest starring as Cloned Vegeta; Brian Drummond, the original English language voice actor for Vegeta (the one behind the meme), will now get to face off against Goku and friends in this story line that takes place between episodes 44-46.

Here’s a sneak peek:

Dragon Ball Super airs every Saturday night at 10:30PM as part of Adult Swim’s Toonami block.

For those unaware, Brian Drummond played Vegeta in the original 1996-1998 Dragon Ball Z dub that for 53 episodes. At the time, the English dub was a joint production between Funimation Productions, Saban Entertainment and The Ocean Group. The latter handled all voice recordings at their Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada offices. Starting with the show’s third season in 1999, created for the original Toonami block, Funimation moved production to their own facilities in Texas as a cost cutting measure. That meant replacing the entire voice cast with a crew that were initially told to mimic the original Canadian actors, but have since grown into their own.

Drummond later reprised the role for an alternate continuation of that original dub produced for the Canadian and European television markets between 2000 and 2002. Earlier this decade, he once again lent his voice to the prince of all Saiyans in a yet to be released dub of Dragon Ball Z Kai.

Are you excited to hear Drummond unleash his inner Vegeta once again? Which one cast do you prefer, the original Canadian crew or the American replacements? What are your thoughts on the original voice of Vegeta facing off against his “copy” as a Vegeta clone? Leave a comment down below!
