Digimon Adventure is a Japanese anime that was produced by Toei Animation. It was broadcast from March 7, 1999 to March 26, 2000. Due to Saban wanting to make the show more family friendly, some scenes were censored for the English dub which premiered on Fox Kids. Hulu uses the censored English dub.
