I still remember watching this in the computer,searching on youtube if there is more episodes of kirby right back at ya! Good times hahahaha.

Yes I did watch the dubbed version of this but I was still kid back then and I get annoyed at subtitles lol.Thinking way back I enjoyed all of the episodes of this show. The funniest is dubbed king dedede,I mean his voice,his accent,It's just perfect hahahahaha.
