How 10 Famous Cartoons Are Adapted for Different Countries

Every year we see new cartoons that capture the attention of both enthusiastic children and adults throughout the world. It’s interesting that these TV stories can look different in many countries. We found cartoons from different parts of the globe in which characters and plots repeat or resemble each other in many ways. We invite you to compare their similarities.

7. Scooby-Doo / Goober and the Ghost Chasers


It’s easy to find the echoes of the good old story about the joyful dog in the Australian animated TV series. Goober, whose color, however, is slightly different from Scooby-Doo, constantly becomes involved in various adventures and unravels mystical secrets with his friends.

8. The Jungle Book / Mowgli


American audiences are used to the story of Mowgli as told by the Walt Disney Company, but few know the Soviet adaptation of Kipling’s work, created in 5 parts at almost the same time as The Jungle Book. Both cartoons turned out to be extremely popular and have high ratings on the world’s top lists.
