    I’m wondering what the Sam Hill is Telemundo doing to these animated films by butchering the daylights out of them to add more worthless commercials?! Case in point a few weeks ago they broadcasted The Lorax on their network, roughly about nearly 30 minutes of the film was butchered including the Trafella Valley Serenade sequence, the Audrey’s Birthday Party scene and the scene where one of the fishes ate a firefly and spooked the daylights out of his comrades. Today they’re broadcasting for the first time the LATAM Spanish language version of Mr Peabody and Sherman and they butchered that as well in the scene that both Mr Peabody & Sherman were escaping a collapsing Egyptian tomb then suddenly cut away showing both Mr Peabody and Sherman with different outfits! This senseless butchering of these animated features needs to stop! If Telemundo doesn’t show these animated features in its entirety then they should of never show then at all!

    Actually the Disney/Pixar films that are translated in LATAM Spanish that are mention here were already broadcasted in the United States on The Disney Channel,Disney Junior, Disney XD,Starz and FreeForm (formally ABC Family) using the SAP mode on the television sets where viewers can switch the audio from English to Spanish and there a little banner in front of the screen that announces that the following program is transmitted in Spanish and can be heard on SAP mode
