Changes from the Manga

Dub Changes

  • The French dub renamed the episode "Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son." This is a reference to the song of the same name that was sung by France Gall for the 1965 Eurovision Song Contest. The song won the contest and it is still very popular in France.
  • The English dub heavily edited the battle between Sailor Moon and Jumeau in an attempt to remove all scenes involving the Youma strangling Sailor Moon.

First Appearances



  • -This is Mika's first appearance in the old English dub, as the episode in which she first appeared was cut from the original dub.
