Crayon Shin-chan Wiki

Crayon Shin-chan in Germany is an article explaining the release of the Crayon Shin-chan franchise in Germany.


Egmont Manga & Anime published the manga. It was cancelled after eight volumes due to low sales.


Interopa Film produced a German dub from the Vitello and Phuuz dubs which premiered on 5 April 2002 on RTL II. Reruns were aired by Fox Kids and Jetix after which the dub was aired again on Animax. 130 episodes (almost 400 segments) aired in German. Autumn of 2003 saw 15 episodes released on three volumes on both DVD and VHS.

The first 52 episodes were later re-dubbed. Between 5 April 2002 and 24 June 2002 the first version aired, which was also very appealing to the older audience. After complaints from a small group of activists the series was suspended for a month while it received a new dub. Only the second dub aired on RTL 2 and Jetix after the suspension. Episodes 53–130 were only dubbed to appeal a younger audience. These episodes were more true to the original Japanese version than the original German dub of the first 52 episodes. For the German version the original English theme song was remixed and performed by the band Bro’Sis; arranged by Stefan Breuer, Dirk Gottschalk and Michael Grimm; sung by Ross Antony, Hila Bronstein, Shaham Joyce, Faiz Mangat, Indira Weis and Giovanni Zarrella.

In 2019 a new batch of episodes was released on DVD by distributor Polyband based on the Spanish dub. The Japanese names were used instead of the Vitello names. The dubbing is produced by DMT – Digital Media Technologie GmbH in Hamburg and the dubbing director is Martin May. Unfortunatly, for the dub of this 2017 season German actors were replaced.

On 17 June 2021 the 28th movie was released in Germany on DVD and BluRay, the same cast as in the 2017 season is heard.
