Many American TV shows are shown via satellite in Saudi Arabia, and lots of the shows have Arabic sub-titles. Here you can see Bart Simpson with the Arabic sub-titles. Also, many American or British commericials are dubbed over with Arabic speaking voices.

    El Shamshoons?? That’s funny. Glad they didn’t dub it.

    Sorry – tame as in they chose episodes that didn’t have anything too controversial in them…

    Yay! We were so excited when they dubbed the Simpsons (El Shamshoons) 2-3 (?) years ago!! But, it was all the very old episodes which just aren’t quite so funny as some now 🙂 But, yes, they were more ‘tame’!

    It’s hard to imagine SA would allow Simpsons into homes. The subtitles must be highly censored or totally rewritten. So much contradiction.

      this isnt on saudi tv its just watched in saudi over satalite, its some other channel probaby MBC or something else that saudi has no control over. So i doubt that its censored. The government doesnt censor what people watch what so ever you can buy a satalite thats aimed at europeon channels do a quick scan and find 100 porno channels without even trying.

  6. I wonder how Bart Simpson likes Saudi Arabia?!
