Spacetoon, 20 Successful Years of Edutainment

ST 20 Anniversary - General
Not Just a TV Channel, Spacetoon, a Way Bigger Presence
Spacetoon, the first Arab TV channel, has recently celebrated 20 years of establishment. It has gained a remarkable experience full of broadcasted anime and cartoons with meaningful content, and it was exclusively suitable for youth in the Arab world. It has also created an image always alive in the memories of a whole generation which is a true embodiment of its slogan “Future Generation Channel”.
This is especially true for the 90s generation, who grew up with Spacetoon and witnessed its progress since 2000. They awaited the first broadcast intro in the early morning to catch up their favorite shows. These include Hunter x Hunter, Detective Conan, Romeo’s Blue Skies, Digimon, Scooby-Doo, The Flintstones, The Mask, Anastasia, Information Hub and Domtom Salemeen. They followed up until the last outro excited for another day that carries new amusing episodes.
Nevertheless, it continued as such for only two years. The great success of Spacetoon in attracting many fans has contributed to the expansion of the broadcast period to non-stop 24 hours a day. This guaranteed airing edutainment content and vastly spreading to exceed any expectations, making Spacetoon at the hearts and minds of millions around MENA.
10 Colorful Planets Filled with Inspiring Stories
For some people, the reason behind Spacetoon’s success is its unique 10-planet identity, which ignites imagination and satisfies various interests and tastes. Others consider that the influential works with unforgettable stories are the backbone of Spacetoon’s spread, such as Romeo’s Blue Skies, Virtua Fighter, Sangokushi, besides other series that foster determination such as Slam Dunk, Honō no Tōkyūji: Dodge Danpei and Bakusō Kyōdai Let’s & Go!!
The Arab TV channel has managed to preserve this special identity with continuous upgrades accompanied by new successful works, like Inazuma Eleven, Beybattle Burst, Ricky Zoom, Super Wings and lately Dragon Ball Super.
Spacetoon Identity, Keeping up with Modern Technologies
“We grow as you do” is the beginning line of one of the most famous Spacetoon songs that celebrated its 18th anniversary. The song has closely reflected the strong attachment between Spacetoon and its fans.
Back in 2000, the channel’s unique logo was marked with a big yellow “S” and colored letters underneath, which went together with a wide orbit around representing space.
Spacetoon identity has gone through multiple improvements in coloring and animation, making it better time after time. The design and shape of the planets have also developed, shifting toward high resolutions and the use of latest 3D technologies to give it a brightly vivid look.
Big Library of Movies and Series in Arabic
It is difficult to guess the complete number of broadcasted anime and cartoon series since 2000, but Spacetoon stated that today there are more than 15000 dubbed episodes and still counting.
Not only that, all works are perfectly localized to fit the Arab culture, without changing the content and course of events. As such, Spacetoon keeps presenting different cultures from around the world with a high-quality Arabic dubbing in a very simple way, following the approach of the Arab League.
Spacetoon, High Selection Standards
Spacetoon is selective in looking for and localizing globally successful works in terms of the story and content. The team then attempts to figure out how it suits its audience and comes up with the final step of dramatic and technical treatment, including the creation of original intros in Arabic.
All these efforts and unique style of work have granted Spacetoon a global stand out attracting the biggest international brands to broadcast its works on the first kids TV channel.
Off to the Big Screen… A New Experience for the Audience
After a strong presence on TV, with uncountable successful cartoons, Spacetoon has started its first cinematic efforts by launching Spacetoon Pictures. The new company handled the distribution of Japanese anime movies to theatres in MENA since 2017.
Among the movies were Yo-kai Watch, Masha and the Bear, Mazinger Z and Detective Conan. The company has also revealed that it will release more Arabic dubbed movies soon.
Towards the Digital World
Spacetoon has always kept pace with the newest social media platforms, and gained so many followers on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube with more than 3 million subscribers and 1B views. By this, it exceeds any other cartoon and anime channel that targets the Arab audience.
Another big step in the digital world came during summer 2019 when Spacetoon launched its first VOD streaming platform under the name “Spacetoon go”. it became the first Arab TV channel to give its audience a great opportunity to watch their favorite works anytime, anywhere.
Spacetoon go offers fascinating features such as parental control in addition to continuous updates and exclusive works to please a wide range of its users. Within a short period, the platform reached more than three million downloads from Google Play and App Store.
Spacetoon, Closer to its Audience
The launch of Spacetoon Event has taken it to the next level from the digital world to on-ground activities. the company is specialized in arranging and organizing entertaining activities that target children and teenagers across GCC.
Inspired by Spacetoon’s most famous characters, the events range between live shows workshops and activity corners from international brands such as Barbie, Transformers, My Little Pony, Scrabble and many more.
Until today, Spacetoon Event has launched about 88 events in the region including Baby Shark Live Musical in UAE and KSA, and Riyadh Toy Festival during Riyadh Season in KSA, which is considered the biggest in terms of activity corners reaching 45, in addition to its notable participation in Dubai Summer Surprises.
Now Spacetoon Event is keen on providing edutainment activities to its audience by managing family entertainment centers.
Spacetoon, What’s Next?
Just like the beginning, Spacetoon keeps promoting good manners and providing original Arabic content which is crystal clear in all broadcasted works.

We positively have faith in their abilities to leave a memorable print in the scene of visual entertainment directed to kids in the world, and we are keen on investing in new generations’ potentials and it’s indeed a successful investment for us.”
Sherif Hasan, the CEO of Dumiah studio, has stated:” We highly appreciate Spacetoon’s trust in Egyptian talents and the great support it provides which helps in accelerating the process of improving and developing the animation and cartoon industry in the Arab region. And by looking at the recourses needed to create an original production, this type of partnership resembles a great chance for local studios to bring their ideas to life and to form a bridge between them and the targeted audience.”
The Egyptian market is crowded with special talents and is full of great achievements that have affected the art industry map in the entire Arab world and have left remarkable traces in art’s history in general that have had an impact on producing a new promising generation of creators.”
Spacetoon also aspires that this partnership would reinforce animation and cartoon production in Egypt and in the Arab world and that it would be the starting point of many other partnerships of this kind in the region.
The Arab company enjoys a vast strategic network of relations with a group of international companies. Since it was founded back in 2000, it has successfully earned the trust of local and international producers alike which turned it into an attracting point for global entertainment companies further enforcing its pioneering position in the Arab world and increasing its experience in kids’ and family entertainment content.
Apart from that, Spacetoon has introduced through the past years a group of cartoon and animation shows that were received with unparalleled success amongst the Arab audience all around the world. It has left a milestone in the memories of an entire generation of the Arab youth as it has played a great role in bringing them up on the right values by presenting an entertaining and educational content.
The upcoming moths are expected to witness revealing more about the titles of the productions that are planned to be released by Spacetoon and Dumiah. It all comes as a part of both parties hard work to create an entertaining visual content and reach a broad base of audience from all over the world.
Previously this year, Spacetooon won the Digital Studio Middle East prize for the best visual effects “Best Special Effects/CGI” for the animation “ZAFARI” which is considered to be the earliest production of its collaboration with the international company “Inkgroup”.
