What is up with this "Prince Mackaroo" crap anyways? The show has never been released in English anywhere (AFAIK), under that title or any other. It's should called Ojarumaru.

Enoki Films USA: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enoki_Films

Wikipedia says:

Quote:
In the United States, Enoki Films has the master license for the series under the title Prince Mackaroo.[6] Enoki Films has also licensed all the TV specials.[7] Suggested name changes have been given to most of the characters, such as Ojarumaru becoming "Prince Mackaroo" and Denbo becoming "Cyber-Fly". However, no English version has been released.

In the Philippines, it is dubbed in Tagalog by Telesuccess Productions, Inc. and was aired on QTV Channel 11 and TV5 under the title Prince Mackaroo.

In Spain, it is dubbed in Spanish by Arait Multimedia and was aired on Telecinco under the title El príncipe Mackaroo (Mackaroo the Prince).


Enoki Films is a Japan-based producer. The "Mackaroo" part, which is used in multiple languages, is likely their choice.
