Beni Arashiro's take on the Kim Possible theme song. Pretty good music video, actually.

The Disney Studio animated series may not be 'all over the world,' but I also found another music video - with less-than-ideal picture quality - in Chinese:

"中文主題曲" ("Chinese Theme")

I suppose I could write something about the dangers of globalization or something like that - but I'm not upset about "Godzilla" and Japanese cars, and enjoy some of the English-dubbed Japanese animation. Particularly now that someone's got the idea that someone who understood both languages should do the translating.

Chinese animation? I haven't seen that - but I figure it's just a matter of time before someone in that country realizes that there's a hot market elsewhere.

Meanwhile: Enjoy the music.

Interestingly, the example by Beni Arashiro is in English.

And it sounds pretty cool in Chinese.

Brigid,

Yeah: I looked for a Japanese-language equivalent, but came up empty.
