Ah, the horror. XD I'm also REALLY glad 4-kids never came to dub FMA.
Oh, I think they'd most likely change al the food they eat into hamburgers. You know, they did that with Pokémon. Rice cakes were called as jelly doughnuts.. (there's a youtube clip about that somewhere >.> ) and in one of the newer episodes, they changed other japanese foods into western ones with a lousy Photoshop editing (which was so DANG easy to notice )
So.. yeah. Remember when Ed ate that.. japanese food on a train in the first FMA? (I can't remember the name of that food, please forgive me. >_< Anyways, the one with balls on a stick.) It would most likely be a hamburger on 4-kids version. Heck, maybe in one of the childhood memories Trisha would be peeling a hamburger instead of an apple. XD
( by the way, personally I think 4kids ruined Pokémon as well. It's not as kiddy as 4kids makes it to be. Even the first movie had so much deeprer psychological stuff in it, but 4kids went and cut off a major part of the beginning about Mewtwo's birth, and made him "I'm the strongest, fear me UGGGHH" kind of guy. D:< Grah. In the original, he was just wondering about his existence.)

lolololol I thank the anime gods that 4Kidz never got their filthy claws on fma XD lulz at all the blood censoring XD ed and al's mother probably wouldnt have even died, with their anti-death theme, they'd probably change the story so sloth was really trisha and they all lived happily ever after lolololol funnies aside there are too many themes in fma that i doubt would be understood by children, such as civil war, retribution and revenge, self sacrifice and love, reilgion vs science, the whole principle of alchemy and other themes such as kaballah, that runs through the series (particually the manga anyway) fma touches many issues that imo need a 13+ brain to properly understand, i certainly wouldnt have been able to aprreciate its complexity at a young age, and every time i re-read it I allways see something new, so er yeh thank god 4kidz didnt get it XD I have absoloutly no idea why they bothered to do one piece when its so obvious from the ridculous amount of editing how unsuitble it was.

If 4kids got FMA?
- Trisha didn't die. She was kidnapped by Father and Ed and Al are questing to rescue her. - Truth didn't take Al's body; it merely transported him to another dimension. - Automail aren't prosthesis; they're simply powered exoskeleton armor. - Armor Al is a robot. He has no blood seal, but rather a computer chip that allows the real Al to communicate with the real world via remote control from the universe he's stuck in. - The homunculi are androids. - Father plans to send the souls of Amestris to the dimension where Al is, not sacrifice them for a stone. - References to religion and historical alchemy are purged. Alchemy is instead referred to simply as magic. Transmutation circles are changed so that they contain no religious runes.

I love this thread. I know I already posted somewhere about how I think 4Kidz would ruin FMA, but I thought of more.
There is obviously no wars or violent conflicts. So there is no military that people hate. But there is the Romantic Dynamic Duo that protect the innocent people of the streets with their flashlight and slingshot. Whether people want to be saved or not. Anyone want to take a guess to who I am talking about?

oh crap, thats SCARY! if they did FMA they probably would end up propping out all the blood and edit the beer into orange juice. and then they'd say "meanie" for "bastard" and they'd have someone like Naruto's voice actor do ed. I-I-I j-j-just, REALLY don't wanna think about it, the theme song you posted gives me nightmares! >.<
FMA If you have attempted alchemy by clapping your hands, snapping, or drawing an array, copy and paste this into your signature

Every time I see this thread, I can't help but shudder, but it's too amusing not to look at every once and a while.
FMAobsessed--I know! I know! Izumi and Sig! Am I right? Am I? HUH?
Hyperthia--Oh good lord... *shudders*
Den's probably the only character who wouldn't go through any changes. Hayate biting Gluttony? That's definitely a no-no!
Garfiel would probably just be removed, unless they called him Gabriela and made him a lady who can't figure out for the life of her where her eyebrows are, so she pencils them in wrong every time. Heck, all the names would probably be changed. Who names their kid "Ed", anyway? The naming sensibilities of this show are just wrong. [/sarcasm]
Instead of being defeated, the homunculi would change to the seven heavenly virtues, to show kids that you really can beat people into shape. Envy would indeed be a talking, walking, magical palm tree that later becomes Ed's best friend and trusted mentor, and Lust would be wearing one of those puffy coats all the time.
And Al would just be walking around in that suit of armor. (The Devil's Nest would have to be cut out, though--Martel jumping into that armor with a young boy actually in there? Probably not the best example for kids to have...)
