    Tamers wouldnt even get dubbed by 4kids because its Tamers and 4Kids cant comprehend the idea that a kids show could be dark. Also Terriermon's entire line and Beelzemon would trigger 4kids to no end.

    Jeri's mom wouldn't be dead. Rather, she's moved away from home.

    Tai wouldn't be Keith, he'd just be Tye.

    I think it would be heavily censored, probably worse than it was when it aired on Fox and when Saban dubbed it. I think they would’ve skipped entire episodes or even story arcs, and if they left the real world arcs in tact, all references to Japan would be gone. Even though Saban made a lot of changes to the series, it was one of the only anime at the time to shorten the Japanese names rather than just 100% Americanize them. It was also one of the only anime I remember at the time that actually acknowledged that it took place in Japan. If 4Kids had dubbed the series, Digimon would probably take place in New York or just some random made up city that looks like Tokyo.

    Not sure about the voices, I think Saban had a much more diverse cast than 4Kids at the time. I agree with the post that said 4Kids wouldn’t even touch Tamers, they’d blow right past it. Maybe the only series I can see them doing properly might be Frontier.

    Let's not forget the music that they would compose for the series.

    I honestly don't think anything 4Kids might do would be worst than the Arabic dub which not only renamed character at random but made it out as if the Mons were "calling out to their older siblings" rather than Digivolving and tried to take out the fact that the Digimon were monsters.

    As much as people rag of 4Kids for their questionable dubbing decisions, and I won't deny that there is plenty to rag on, at the very least they understand what the series they dubbed were about and kept that intact:

    • One Piece was still a series about pirates going on an adventure
    • Shaman King was still about shaman in a tournament with their ghost partners
    • Magical Doremi was still about apprentice witches
    • Mew Mew Power was still about girls infused with animal DNA fighting aliens
    • Yu-Gi-Oh was still about trading cards becoming a professional sport

    Mind you they probably didn't have the option to not keep the core concept of Pokemon, F-Zero or Kirby because Nintendo would likely drop the hammer on them but the fact that I just named some of the worst offenders when it comes to 4Kids' shenanigans and the core concepts of each shows just how much actually carried over into the 4Kids dubs.
    I'll work to see that justice will be fully served, meow~!

    I remember the Arabic dub. Someone here was from there. They told us all about it.
    But people hate 4Kids for many reasons. And they still suck but they're just the suckiest sucks who sucked in North America. Other countries can be worse.

    For voice actors, I can see Jason Griffith as Tai.

    It could either be surprisingly good or painfully bad.

    I can imagine the edits they'd do to Angewoman, Lady Devimon, Rosemon, etc. Color in all the skin on the suits. Erase the boob lines, maybe edit a little to the design so it doesn't look like a bodysuit.

    At least it wouldn't all be bad.

    Also names ideas:

    Taichi-> Chris, David, something common and you could see a sporty kid being named.
    Sora-> Something girly, but can be turned around to sound boyish. Cassandra/Cassy to Cas, Alexandra to Alex, Rebecca to Beck.
    Izzy/Koushiro-> Something you'd see a kid with huge glasses being bullied in elementary school being called. Ezekiel, Dexter, Sheldon.
    Mimi-> If they didn't think Mimi was girly enough, they'd probably use Stacy, Veronica, or some other girl names that make you think of a valley girl, or a spoiled kid.
    Jou-> I can totally see them calling him just Joe. Though I suppose they might also try to slap a nerd name onto him like Izzy. Maybe Seymour? xD
    Yamato-> Something 'cool'. Dirk, Seth, Jason. Because he's the cool guy who's always against the awesome hero leader.
    Takeru-> Got a be a cute name. Billy, Robbie, Richie. Diminutive forms of other names for sure.
    Hikari-> Cuter girly names. Chelsey, Kaylie, Brianna. Or something you could make a baby-talk shortening of. BriBri. Kaykay. Sissy.

    You forgot the mention that the music would be loud, obnoxious, and playing non-stop.
