Bu Qutada and Bu Nabil is a 3D Cartoon TV series based on a daily comic strip that is published in Al Watan Newspaper , the TV series was aired for the third year in role in Kuwait on Al Watan TV that owned by the newspaper.
The Strip or the TV series is about three different Kuwaiti families representing the different views and classes in the Kuwaiti society from the secular liberal family to the religious conservative family to the traditional Bedouin family.
The TV series gained infamous regional fame when it portrayed negatively Morocco in three episodes , there was a huge anger in Morocco creating a real diplomatic crisis forcing Al Watan newspaper to issue an official apology.
Then we found out that in episode no.14 “Dumpy Nabila” it portrayed Egypt and Egyptians negatively and disgustingly. You can see the episode below.
the Ugly Egyptian theory.
Some will argue that we make fun from the people in Gulf in our films and some will say that you should watch the Simpsons to know how mockery based on perceptions reaches to but anyone who loves Egypt from his heart will be offended , we are not that poor and the fact that some Gulf men exploited the poverty of poor girls in poor classes is something we are sick from more than they do.
The Egyptian Kuwaiti relations go beyond president Nasser to the days of late King Farouk when there was no oil and Egypt was still regarded the big sister and offered help for no return , it is sad that such stupid work damage these relations so easily by creating inside hatred and anger. If many Kuwaitis believe that Egyptians are poor bastards who exploited them for their money then they must know many Egyptians regard them as arrogant bastards whom are happy with their money and disrespect other ; unfortunately such series enforces these perceptions.
Of course this episode did not catch our attention in Ramadan except when it was published in Youm 7 and I am sure it was published after some Egyptians in Kuwait saw it.
