The animation channel “Spacetoon” is shutting down.
Social media users across the MENA region have shared an image, which allegedly purports that the animation channel “Spacetoon” will shut down. Many internet users expressed their sadness to see the channel closing.
Misbar investigated the circulating claim and found it to be misleading. The channel did not announce that it will shut down.
The channel did not announce the news via its official website or any of its social media accounts. Moreover, the shows are aired on the channel as usual, and the TV guides are being regularly published via their social media accounts.
The same rumor has been widely shared online in the past.
The pan-Arab animation channel “Spacetoon TV” began broadcasting in March 2000 and has a large fan base. The channel targets children from 4 years of age and up and has been famous for its translated animation songs.
