Zig and Sharko Poster.jpg

Zig and Sharko is a French animated show created by Oliver Jean-Marie. When it was brought to the UK and other countries, the said series was censored. Zig and Sharko was released on December 21, 2010 and its still ongoing, but its currently on a hiatus.

The series had some additional censorship when ViacomCBS bought the rights to release the show on Paramount+, and they use the international censored versions due to their family friendly policies for cartoons, and a big strict rule for violence and alcohol. Some episodes have been banned due to alcohol, extreme violence, booty sex scenes and sexuality.
