Crayon Shin Chan was a Japanese anime, it came out in April 6, 2003. When the anime was brought over to the USA Vitello Productions censored the anime in order to make it more family friendly. Vitello Productions made the anime more family friendly and removed any Japanese text in order to make it more acceptable for western audiences. The Vitello dub only aired in Europe, Australia and parts of South America.
