In addition to being dubbed in Arabic with subtitles provided for shots including written English, such as the chalkboardsreferences to alcohol, pork, and numerous other themes have been deleted or significantly modified.
For instance, Homer drinks soda-pop instead of beer, eats beef sausages and hot dogs as opposed to pork, while shots of him eating bacon and pork rinds were removed entirely, eats ka'ak instead of donutsand all references to Moe's Tavern were cut. We toned [down] the language — we Arabized it in the cultural sense.
Amr Hosnya scriptwriter who frequently adapts works for the Arab world, served as the writer. The creative personalities behind Al-Shamshoun were Egyptian. The producers decided to adapt the "classic" episodes, beginning with Season 4rather than starting with the original episodes.
The characters were also given typical Arabic names such as Omar, Mona, Beesa and Badr for Homer, Marge, Lisa and Bart, respectively, as part of the retooling, while voices were provided by leading actors including Egyptian film star Mohamed Henedi as "Omar".
