The Detective Conan anime was first dubbed in the Arab World in 1998 and was aired on Qatar TV, and on March 31st 2000, the first episode was broadcast on Spacetoon. Currently the latest season shows first only on SpaceToon or its sister channel SpacePower. The series is dubbed by the most famous anime dubbing centre in the region, Venus Centre (مركز الزهرة Markaz Az-Zuhra).
Detective Conan in Arabic is called المحقق كونان Al-Muhaqiq Konan, which literally means Detective Conan.
The Detective Conan series has became very popular in the Arab world and is one of the best ranked animes of all time. Venus Centre continues dubbing Detective Conan. As of May 2013, up to 350+ episodes are dubbed.
Most of the characters kept their main names, but names with four syllables are often reduced to two syllables (i.e. Mitsuhiko is called ميتسو Mitso). Most of characters only have a given name and not a family name or vice versa. Most of the cases characters kept their original Japanese names as well, but some are changed because they sound similar to another character (e.g Yuuko from Episode 3 was renamed شوكو Shuko because it sounded similar to Yoko Okino's name. All of the TV specials are always divided into two or four seasons and only the first four films have been dubbed so far.

 Theme song
The opening and ending song from season 1 to season 4 were different from the original Japanese intro. In season 5 to the season 8, a remix of the previous tune with the same lyrics was used. Both the endings were simply the tune instrumental. The first four seasons used a logo which is simply the Detective Conan in Arabic in red on a cross-hair. The current logo (used from season 5 onwards) is very similar, but the cross-hair is different.
- Detective Conan is the longest dubbed TV show in the Arab World.
- Officially, Detective Conan is divided into seasons, although (جزء) is literally translated to part.
