  • The Song Remains the Same - In dubs of All New! The Sweet Treets that use the 2002 US localisation (with the theme song changed to "Sweet Treet" by XMUSIC), the theme song was left in English or French. The Sallyish dub did dub it, using Voiceover Translation.

    • Also used in the Russian dubs of the first three series. On the DVD releases, they've been fully dubbed, which sounds weird to people who've grown up with the voiceover.
    • Any dubs that dubbed "Sweet Treet" by XMUSIC, excluding the French dub, used this method.
