Oswald Intro (British)

The intro from the UK dub

Oswald is an American children's show made by HiT Entertainment and Nick Jr. The show aired from 2001 to 2003 in the U.S. It also had a British Dub just like Little Einsteins, Blue's Clues, Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!, ToddWorld, LazyTown and Yo Gabba Gabba! It is known to have Richard Pierce as the titular character, Moir Leslie as the voice of Daisy, and David Holt as the voice of Henry.

The British dub aired on Five's Milkshake block in the early and mid 2000's. A few Oswald DVD's have been released in the UK, such as Hats off to Oswald, and as said by Gilby1385, they have the British voices. 13 episodes were uploaded on the Internet as of 2016.

Findings

Recently, Gilby1385 said she had copies of the British Oswald episodes on some HiT Entertainment compilation DVDs as well as a Sunday Mirror-exclusive DVD containing two episodes. On her YouTube channel, she said the DVDs she had were titled Christmas Children's FavouritesSuperstar Children's Favourites and Funshine Children's Favourites. The Oswald episodes featured on the compilation DVDs were titled "The Snow Festival", "I Guess You Never Know" and "A Day at the Beach", respectively, and the Sunday Mirror DVD had the episodes "Perfect Match" and "Pet Show". All five were uploaded to YouTube.
