Crayon Shin-chan Wiki

Portugal is a country in South Europe with around 10 million inhabitants. Along with Spain, it's one of the countries where Crayon Shin-chan has experienced the biggest success, with a great quantity of episodes being translated, and with the series growing in the memories of various people groups across the nation.


Despite the popularity of the anime, the manga was never released, probably due to the lack of demand for the manga from the public.


The series first aired on SIC in 2003 with a Portuguese dub by Nacional Filmes based on the Vitello and Phuuz dubs. In the theme song the lead singer is Rui de Sá.

The uncensored LUK Internacional version started airing in Portugal on Animax in October 2009 with a different Portuguese dub by dubbing studio Santa Claus, and continued airing on the channel until its closure in May 2011. The Animax dub resumed broadcasting on Biggs in June 2013 in blocks of 26 episodes and then in blocks of 52. As of 16 December, 2016, the series is no longer airing on Biggs due to a controversy brought on by a scene in the show that parents and educators perceived as problematic which caused the show to be moved to a late-night slot before being taken off the air again in that date.

Since January of the same year, LUK Internacional has been continuously releasing episodes of their dub on the YouTube channel "Shin-chan em Português". The channel is managed by LUK Internacional themselves. The content seems to be reruns of what has already been released on TV, with little to no new exclusive content.

On 28 June 2021, the series returned on Fox Comedy with a dubbed version (Santa Claus dub) in the mornings and the Japanese version with European Portuguese subtitles in the afternoons. On 9 August 2021, it began to air only in dubbed version each morning and each afternoon and the subtitled version is no longer aired on this channel.
