A Hilarious Emirati Cartoon- Shabiat Al Cartoon: شعبية الكرتون

Khaleejia said: "Shabiat Al Cartoon" is a very funny low budget cartoon made by Emirati youth.
This cartoon tells about life of the modern UAE nationals in an honest and funny way. It's in Arabic, but those who lived in the UAE or know Arabic culture will be able to understand a lot even if they dont know the language. At the same time some parts of the cartoon refer to very specific aspects of locals' life which is hard to understand for people outside Emirati society.

This cartoon is showed on TV during Ramadan. Last year this cartoon was more successful (i.e. was loved by locals) than the famous "Freej" cartoon which was rather boring. Hence "Freej" was stopped but Shabiat al Cartoon will be shown on TV again this Ramadan (of course all new parts :)

You can watch some parts of this cartoon on YouTube
