It's something they also did with "The Persuaders!", "Die Zwei" in German, which was supposedly somewhat less amusing in its original version than the rather "relaxed" translation.
I once read an interview with someone who'd handled the translation and from what he said Tony Curtis, who spoke German, loved it.
The first Bud Spencer & Terence Hill Italo Westerns were pretty brutal. The dubbing made them funny. And probably better for it.
