One of Ramadan's memorable characters is Fatouta created and performed by the late comedian star Samir Ghanem.

Fatouta series has been airing for more than two decades on Arab TV stations with new riddles every Ramadan, in which a little curious man in a green suit and very big, oversized shoes, taking the young audience around the word or making them laugh with a funny song or dance through his shows.

Bakar

Established in 1997, Bakkar's show that can be traced back to the nostalgic moments revolves around a number of charming adventures of a Nubian Egyptian kid named Bakar, accompanied by his pet goat Rashida, and his friends.

The entertainment show episodes shed light on the sense of belonging to the country and nationalist themes.

Nimnim 

Among them was 'Alam Semsem' (Semsem’s World), in 1997. This puppet show attracted many younger generations and engaged them in solving the mysteries encountered by the characters.

It featured a large green puppet who wears a cap from upper Egypt and a patterned vest (Nimnim) and his friend (Filfil ), who often gets carried away with himself, as well as other characters like (KhoKha), a furry pinkish orange-colored puppet with long black hair, and Uncle Hussain, with their songs, dances, and conversations.

The series also managed to maintain its position every Ramadan season by keeping young audiences tuned into the green puppet and his friend's daily-life stories.
