Kid’s shows are supposed to be the source of innocence, creativity, and an overall positive influence on the young mind’s that are watching them. But sometimes, writers can go a little too far and an artistic or creative decision may be the tipping point whether the censors will allow the episode to air. Or, sometimes these episodes will bypass the FCC, only to be ill-received by kids and parents, causing the episode to be pulled after exposure. It seems that society’s most important rule is to first and foremost protect the children and avoid any sort of content that may shatter their innocence. These days, parents rely on the television too much to do their job for them and get upset when their child sees something that they weren’t ready for.
This video will be discussion the banned episodes of various children’s series. What is interesting is the fact that people will have differing opinions on what should be banned and what should have remained on the air. Some networks eventually changed their mind and allowed the shows to go on the air after some time had passed and the controversy was over. You’ll be surprised on what qualified an episode to get banned. In an age where Disney can sneak in images of naked women, the reasons some of these shows were banned seem extraordinarily trivial. From worrying about offending certain cultures to having too many flashing lights, the criteria for banishment is pretty small and can be interpreted for nearly every episode. It’s a wonder that children even have stuff to watch anymore that has any quality.
Parents seems to not give their kids enough credit in their ability to handle certain topics shown on television. Like in Australia a few years ago when the county’s public broadcasting network banned an episode of Peppa Pig, whose main characters befriended a spider. Because Australia seemed to think their children were completely stupid, and the country housed some of the most venomous spiders in the world, the broadcasting company thought it best to yank the episode.
Bugs Bunny has had his share of controversy, which led to three episodes being banned for being offensive. Two episodes had Japanese and German caricatures that were deemed too offensive to be seen called, “Bugs Bunny Nips the Nips” and “Herr Meets Hare.” There is even one episode where the Bunny puts on blackface and joins a minstrel show, which really pushes the envelope of the time.
Sometimes episodes were banned if they originally featured a celebrity who was now put on the shame list. In the show, “Arthur”, which aired on public broadcasting networks, there was an episode called, “Room to Ride” that featured former Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong. However, after the athlete admitted to using steroids to get his wins, the episode was pulled and banned. There are no signs of the episode returning anytime soon.
