The show is also very popular in the Netherlands. Since it's start in 2003 on the local Fox Kids / Jetix channel, it was - at first - mostly popular among kids aged 6-12, but not much later also got started a huge following among teens and even young adults. Due to the many sexual jokes and naked buttocks (even though in an edited and sometimes even censored form), and Fox Kids / Jetix being mainly a kids channel, the broadcaster started getting complaints from parents. Putting the facts together that the show appealed to an almost completely different target group, and the many complaints from parents, the channel reduced the amount of airing slots to once or twice a week. Than soon after to one episode short (ten minutes) a week, before being completely fased out. Shins popularity remains, but adult and teen oriented channels remain hesitant of airing the series, due to cartoons having a reputation in the Dutch culture as being 'just for kids', no matter if there's sexual content or not.
