Because my daughter likes the show, our family has gotten into Winx Club
. Basically, out local Nickelodeon affiliate was only showing season 4 episodes repeatedly, so I sought out further sources on the internet, through Shareaza and Bittorrent. In my subsequent research, I discovered that the show originates from Italy and is thus natively in Italian. The first 3 seasons were dubbed into English by a company called 4Kids, but the third season also saw Nickelodeon buy up the North American distribution rights, so they dubbed their own version with their own voices from that point on. 4Kids also dubbed their own version of season 4, which had different voices again, (from both Nick and 3Kids' own seasons 1 through 3). Season 5 is exclusively Nick as far as English language distribution rights are concerned, and there are 2 CGI movies, though the 2nd hasn't been released by Nick yet, and is slated to come out in April. Fortunately, there exists an English dub from the Italian DVD/BR release, which I downloaded. Season 5 is currently on its mid-season hiatus but is expected to resume this month... no specifics yet though.
