Crayon Shin-chan is a popular contemporary cartoon series in Indonesia.  It is originally a Japanese manga and anime series written by Yoshito Usui.  The stories center around the adventures (or misadventures!) of a five-year-old little boy along with his family members, neighborhood community, school, and friends.  Certain viewers find the program controversial because of Crayon Shin-chan’s antics.

Although the series ended in 2010 due to the passing of Usui (1958 – 2009), it is still broadcasted around the world in different languages.  More information can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crayon_Shin-chan .
