God I can't believe they tried to bring over a dubbed version over. Seriously Crayon Shin-chan is the epitome of Japan's crooked sense of humor and it just cannot be translated over.
I'm sure it's funny in English, but I'm sure it isn't Shin-chan.
I haven't seen the original, but I will say the english dub has had it's moments from the few times I watched it. Not sure if it was direct translation or a localized joke, but they've had some funny ones about nazis that I was suprised to hear from TV.
I find gundam 00 pretty addictive, but don't know if others will. I was just waiting for code geass r2 to end (series seemed so dumb to me), and was pretty happy when it did so that season 2 of 00 would start. Not watching anything else, but would consider continuing zetsubo sensei from where I left off when I was still in school, something just very enjoyable about that one to me.
