Oh man isnt this just a can of worms to be released. :p

Anyway my brief answer to this is that it depends on the series. Anime like Cowboy Bebop, Comic Party, FMA, pokemon, Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt can be viewed as anime that succeeded as good dubs in my opinion. As for there are others that had the subs done a lot better. Dont think I can be more specific than this.

Subs: Kuroshitsuji, Soul Eater, Kore wa Zombie desu ka, etc

Dubs: School Rumble, Lucky Star, Soul Eater, etc

onething i didnt like is how they changed a bit of parco Fulgoire in Zatch Bell! they changed the song from being about boobs, to dancing all day.

Subs are generally better, but some dubs are great:
FMA Brotherhood
Dragonball series
Studio Ghibli films
Yu Yu Hakusho

Some Dubs are funny/ ridiculously lousy:
Ghost Stories
Speed Racer Original (Ultrafast talking anyone?)

I like dubs cuz it annoying to have to read the subs and I like English voices better it's funnier. Though on some occasions I guess subs are better but I like dub
