Phillip Misenti started this petition to Original creators Tatsunoko Production and

In 1992, Saban Brands, LLC created an English dub of Tatsunoko Production's The Genie Family.  The dub was coined the name of "Bob In A Bottle" and it aired throughout the 1990s in many English-speaking countries.  Unfortunately, the United States was not one of those countries, and only a few episodes were recorded on tape by viewers, which makes this dub very hard to find.  Saban's rights to the anime expired on December 18, 2000. 

However, in April 2020, a YouTube user by the name of Yui-Senpai TV discovered that all episodes of the dub have been preserved on videocassette copies in the Library of Congress.  These tapes have been presumably locked away for decades, hopefully preserving their quality.  Before time potentially erases this dub forever, let's work together to get Bob In A Bottle on digital copies such as Blu-Rays, DVDs and streaming services!

On October 2020, Viz Media picked up the rights to the show's most recent spinoff, The Genie Family 2020, which is now streaming subtitled on Crunchyroll and VRV.  It is very possible that they could also stream Bob In A Bottle, along with its Akubi-centered spinoffs, Yobadete! Tobadete! Akubi-Chan and Akubi Girl.

Also, Discotek Media and RetroCrush have been working together to revive classic anime titles by rescuing their licenses and restoring their content to the highest quality possible.  This is exactly the kind of treatment that Bob In A Bottle needs!

So sign now, spread the word, and reach out to these companies.  Please let them know that this long-lost English dub is waiting to be seen by a new generation of kids and anime fans alike!  And the next time you sneeze, think of Bob... please.
