Trivia

  • This dub has been produced by Super M Productions, a Lebanese dubbing company formerly under the name of KM Productions. In 2005, KM Productions signed a deal with Nelvana to produce the first 20 episodes of The Backyardigans for the Middle Eastern audience; however, this is the only Arabic version to date.
  • Catch that Train! was never broadcasted during the series' run on Jeem TV.
  • Broadcasts on Majid feature an alternate title card than that of Baraem and Jeem TV's.
  • The master edit for the Majid-broadcasted episodes feature title cards that are slightly different than that of the ones broadcasted on Baraem/Jeem:
    • Majid's footage features the open-iris title card with the episode's title at the bottom, in the similar manner of a subtitle.
    • The original footage broadcasted on Baraem/Jeem TV, like a regular title card would, feature a colored, styled text for the episode's title appearing at the center of the screen.
    • The Robot Rampage parts are the only episodes to have the master footage's title card broadcasted on both channels.
