    Shin-Chan is FUNimation's version of the popular yet controversial Japanese anime series. Shin is a 5-year-old boy who is constantly doing and saying inappropriate things, with hilarious results, much to the dismay and annoyance of those around him. Shin, along with his family, his friends from kindergarten, and some annoying neighbors, ends up turning every day situations into funny adventures.

    Unsure how the show would be initially received, it debuted in late August 2006 on Adult Swim as a test run of six episodes composed of vignettes that were mixed and matched spanning the show's 14 year history. The test run proved to be a success and a complete first season was ordered. FUNimation has made the episodes more mature in content as well as more current with numerous pop culture references.moreless

    Intelligent and outspoken, the in-your-face 17-year-old Breanna Barnes (Kyla Pratt)(The Proud Family, Love & Basketball) loves attention. Anywhere there's a crowd, you can bet she's at the center of the action. Breanna's sportscaster dad, Flex (Flex Alexander)Gas, Where I Live)(, is a fun-loving ladies' man who not only wants to be a responsible parent, but also wants to be his daughter's best friend. Flex is happy giving Breanna the freedom to make her own choices, but only if she is willing to accept the consequences.

    Flex's best friend and Breanna's godfather, Duane (Kelly Perine), is a constant presence in their lives for better and sometimes worse. A used-car salesman who lives next door, Duane has a way of repelling women the way Flex has attracting them. Keeping Breanna busy is her best friend, Spirit (Sicily), with whom she creates a lot of mischief, while her best guy-friend, Arnaz (Robert Ri'chard), is the object of her on-again off-again affection.

    In 2004, the series received two NAACP Image Award nominations: Flex Alexander earned a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and Kyla Pratt earned a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

    In 2005, UPN launched a One On One spinoff titled, Cuts. It stars R&B singer/TV actor Marques Houston as Kevin Barnes and actress Shannon Elizabeth as Tiffany.
