Anime Description: Shin-chan

Every once in awhile, an anime show comes along that's so strange that it defies explanation. This is one of them. Crayon Shin-chan is a popular long-running comedic series in Japan and focuses on the (mostly perverted) misadventures of a kid named Shinnosuke Nohara. However, much to the annoyance (and sometimes horror) of his parents, "Shin-chan" exhibits some of the most bizarrely perverted, rude and madcap behavior, always leaving disaster in his wake.

Much like animated comedies like South Park or Home Movies, part of the shows charm comes from it's simplistic art style. (Especially with its deceptively child-like appearance, much like South Park.) There is also no real storyline, most of Crayon Shin-chan is episodic. However, this series went on to being one of the biggest comedy hits in Japan and other countries as well. Watch out, because when Shin-chan is opens his mouth, all hell will break loose!

Anime Description: Shin-chan

Shin Chan is a Japanese manga and anime created and drawn by Yoshito Usui. It's about five-year-old kindergarten student Shinnosuke Nohara, or "Shin", and his insane behavior that often drives his parents and teacher up the wall. It takes place in the Kasukabe, Saitama Prefecture of Japan. The show in Japan is called "Crayon Shin-chan" because of the crayon look the characters are drawn in.

The show has gone through three dubbings, the latest being from FUNimation. The latest dub it very adult, including Shin-chan's near constant talk about pooping out his latest meal, and with random curses thrown in.

Some of Shin's favorite things to talk about is his mothers small bust, older women, showing his butt at any time available, and doing the elephant dance where he paints a picture of an elephant on his crotch and then wags his penis around to simulate an elephants trunk.

A running gag in the Japanese version is how Shin always says the wrong phrase relating to things. Many of these jokes were unable to be translated to English.
