I'm watching it right now! Kirby's so cute I wished I had a pet Kirby!
Anyway, this is where you guys discuss about Hoshi No Kaabii (Kirby: Right Back At Ya! in English...).
Note: We discuss about the Japanese Dub, not the English one. This is after all, a Japanese Entertainment Forum...

I only ever watched the English version, but it was an awesome show for sure. I should go watch it again. lol

I remember this anime. I use to watch it about a year ago, but stopped watching it all of a sudden and I only watched it in English.

I was an awesome show. There used to be Hoshi No Kaabii Curry on sale at Japanese supermarkets along with Hoshi no Kaabi Furikake with free stickers. I used the stickers to decorate my Gameboy.

Well actually a rough translation of Hoshi no Kaabi is more like Kirby of the Stars, but it was called Right Back at Ya! in the dub. :) Also your "rule" about talking about the japanese version is weird. Japanese Entertainment means anything which originates from Japan is okay, english dub or not.
Anyway, I did watch this in the japanese a while ago because I had heard of it and I thought it was pretty good. It's got some nice characters in it, although I have no idea where Tiff and Tuff originate from. I'm assuming either from those weird mushroom things or a descendant of Kabu. :/ I really do like the fluency of characters in the show, using all the same which appeared in the games. I never understood King Dedede's and Escargoon's CGI animation though. Seemed a little out of place if you ask me.
I kinda stopped watching as soon as I saw Knuckle Joe in it. :P

You should watch the Jap version instead. It's way better. 4Kids cut off a lot of parts, including the epic ones (they think they're too violent).
And you should also watch the episode with the dog... (Birth! Kirby's brother!) It made me cry a bucketload...

I've seen some episodes of the Japanese version, as well as the English version. I liked both. Though, I admit, some of the voices in the English version did get on my nerves. A good kids' anime, nonetheless.
