Brave Soldiers is an English version of the infamous North Korean children's' cartoon Squirrel and Hedgehog, which is notorious for on-screen killing of characters and propaganda. The show has since gained two fanbases - an ironic one, and a non-ironic one which likes the character designs and the visual style.
Italian company Mondo TV S.P.A. wanted to license the show and release it in Europe, with an English dub. A post featuring the official description was available on the Tumblr made for fans of Squirrel and Hedgehog. It got, however, deleted along with the whole blog. The European version tried to remove the propaganda elements, replacing it with a generic "good army vs bad army" cliche, but it kept the onscreen deaths and violence. Only one image of this version exists, with a prototype European logo. The first 26 episodes were dubbed into English in 2008.
