Crayon Shin-chan (or more simply known as Shin-chan) is a manga series written and drawn by Yoshito Usui, which originally ran from August 1990 to February 2010 until a new series titled New Crayon Shin-chan began in August 2010.

The series primarily focuses on the crude, comedic, and raunchy situations of a 5-year-old boy named Shinnosuke Nohara (who often goes by "Shin") alongside his parents, baby sister, dog, and friends from school.

An anime series based on the manga was produced by Shin-Ei Animation in April 1992 and is still currently airing with over 900 episodes. Several animated films based off the anime were also produced and have been released annually since July 1993.
