A large number of the jokes in the arrangement originate from Shin-chan's every so often bizarre, unnatural and unseemly utilization of dialect, and from his insidious conduct. Thus, non-Japanese perusers and watchers may think that its hard to comprehend his jokes. Truth be told, some of them can't be converted into different dialects. In Japanese, certain set expressions quite often go with specific activities; a large number of these expressions have standard reactions. A run of the mill choke includes Shin-chan bewildering his folks by utilizing the wrong expression for the event; for example, saying "Welcome back" ("おかえりなさい" "okaeri nasai") rather than an utilizing a more reasonable wording, for example, "I am home" ("ただいま" "Tadaima") when he gets back home. Another trouble in deciphering emerges from the utilization of onomatopoeic Japanese words. In reproving Shin-chan and endeavoring to teach him in appropriate conduct his parent or mentor may utilize such an expression to demonstrate the right activity. Frequently through misjudging such an expression as an alternate, however comparable sounding expression, or through deciphering it in one sense when another is planned, Shin-chan will set out on a game-plan which, while it might be what he supposes is being asked for of him, prompts odd acts which serve just to pester his folks or coaches much more. This isn't confined to onomatopoeic words, since any word can turn into a wellspring of perplexity for Shin-chan, including English loanwords, for example, mixing up "cool" for "pool" ("That is pool!" or "Pu-ru da zo!" ("プールだぞ！") for "That is cool!").
Some different clever topics which are rehashed in the arrangement are of a more widespread nature, for example, chokes in light of physical drama, (for example, eating snow with chopsticks) or, as a kid, surprisingly utilizing grown-up discourse examples or idiosyncrasies. In any case, even there, a large number of the stiflers may require a comprehension of Japanese culture as well as dialect to be completely valued; for instance, his "Mr. Elephant" impression, while being straightforwardly clear as a physical muffle, likewise has a more profound reverberation with contemporary Japanese culture since it alludes to the mainstream Japanese youngsters' tune "Zou-san" (ぞうさん). Shin-chan consistently winds up besotted with really female characters who are significantly more seasoned than him, and an extra wellspring of amusingness is gotten from his virtuous endeavors at charming these characters, for example, by asking them (improperly, on a few levels) "Do you like green peppers?" (ピーマン好き?). He ceaselessly shows an absence of class when conversing with grown-ups, making inquiries, for example, "How frequently did you go to the police?" to intense looking men or "How old are you?" to elderly individuals.
The arrangement works under a sliding timescale where the characters have kept up their ages over the span of the arrangement. In spite of the fact that time has gone to take into consideration the ascent and fall of a few popular culture symbols, relational unions, pregnancies, and births of different characters, every one of the characters still keep up their age at the season of their presentation. For instance, if the two noteworthy births in the arrangement are considered (Shinnosuke's sister, Himawari, and his kindergarten educator's youngster), Shinnosuke would be seven years of age and in second grade, however he isn't.
