The Plot of the Show
Many of the jokes in the series originate from Shin-chan’s occasionally weird, unnatural and inappropriate use of language, as well as from his mischievous behaviour. In scolding Shin-chan, there is an attempt to educate him in proper behaviour, that his parent or tutor may use to indicate the correct action.
