The stars of 4Kids sing the National Anthem

The 4Kids National Anthem was meant to celebrate the Fourth of July. It features characters from shows that aired on 4Kids.

Why It Sucks

  1. The voice actors who sing the song range from tolerable (Knuckles being the most tolerable) to downright terrible (Luffy being the worst one).
  2. Anime characters singing the American national anthem do not fit with their personas at all, considering "Anime" means "Japanese cartoon".
  3. It's a massive insult to the Star Spangled Banner (the American national anthem), anime/cartoon characters, and the United States of America all together.
  4. Splinter sounds like an opera singer.
  5. Terrible editing.
  6. Lazy transitions.


It was widely panned by the majority of TV audiences. The video on YouTube has also received a ton of dislikes.
