Hamtaro is a Japanese anime that was produced by Shogakukan Music & Digital Entertainment, and was released from 7 July 2000 to 31 March 2006. When Spacetoon bought the rights to air the anime in Saudi Arabia, some scenes were censored due to local customs and wanting to make it more family friendly.
