82

for kids are supposed to be entertaining for kids, we can’t argue with that but also they usually are supposed to teach our children how to be kind and nice and all the good things, right? Yes, but sometimes people who create these shows forget about it.

Nexter.org prepared you a bunch of episodes that got canceled and the real reasons why.

Steven Universe – ‘We Need to Talk’

The United Kingdom wasn’t the biggest fan of this episode because at one point the character named Pearl shares a very close but sweet dance with Steven’s mother, Rose so they pulled the episode, cropping about three seconds of the footage before broadcast. The fans though were not happy about it and the network claimed their “slightly edited version is more comfortable for local kids.”

 

Beavis and Butthead – ‘Comedians’

In this episode, Beavis and Butthead want to become stand-up comedians. At some point we see Beavis juggling flaming newspapers on stage which ended up with him accidentally burning the comedy club to the ground.

About a month later, a five-year-old boy supposedly watched this episode and decided to play with a lighter in his bed, burned his family’s trailer to the ground and killed his two-year-old sister.

After that, mother of this boy blamed the cartoon, the network pulled the episode, moved the show to a ten o’clock timeslot, added a disclaimer, and cut out all fire-related moments.

 

Tiny Toons – ‘Elephant Issues’

“One Beer” episode was supposed to be like an anti-drinking morality play where Buster, Plucky, and Hampton J. Pig drink some beer and make a series of bad desitions like stealing a police cruiser, trying to talk to ladies and eventually driving off a cliff. Obviously, the public hated it and the company had to take it down.

 

Powerpuff Girls – ‘See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey’

“See Me, Feel Me, Gnomey” was a rock opera where the girls were fighting against a villain named Gnome. They lost the fight and Gnome promised them peace only if they give up their powers. Although, his vision for peace is more like a totalitarian state, where all citizens of Townsville became a Gnome-worshiping cult.

The episode was never released in the US (although it aired in other countries) because of a couple of reasons. Some say it is because of a pro-Communism ideology, while others think it is because the episode had the strobe effects causing epileptic seizures.

McCracken, though, claimed that the real reason is: “The metal beams in the destroyed buildings looked too much like crosses, and one of the hippies looked like Jesus.”

 

Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures – ‘The Littlest Tramp’

“The Littlest Tramp” episode includes a small scene where the titular hero takes a good long sniff of a fragrant flower. And according to Allen Wildmon of the American Family Association, a Kentucky family became too concerned that it looked a little too similar to “a powdery white substance.” So they had to re-edit the episode to remove this controversial moment.

 

Futurama – ‘A Tale of Two Santas’

“A Tale of Two Santas” brought back everyone’s favorite murderous Kris Kringle, Robot Santa Claus, and his collection of weaponry. Although, Fox decided the episode was “inappropriate” for its original 7 pm timeslot in 2000 and the episode bumped to December 23rd of the following year at aired at their new timeslot at 9 pm.

 

Shake It Up – ‘Party It Up’

Shake It Up! was a Disney TV show about two girls seeking fame as professional dancers. In the “Party It Up” episode one of the shallow model-type girls says at the duo: “I could just eat you guys up. You know, if I ate.” Because eating disorders are just so funny, huh? After the show aired, Demi Lovato wrote on her Twitter: “I find it really funny how a company can lose one of their [actresses] from the pressures of an EATING DISORDER and yet still make [a] joke about that very disease. #nice”

Disney Channel PR’s Twitter outlet responded, saying “it’s NEVER our intention to make light of eating disorders!” And then pulled the episode, cut out these insensitive scenes and returned to circulation.

 

You Can’t Do That on Television – ‘Adoption’

As you can guess the episode called “Adoption” touches upon the topic of adoption in several skits. One of them is about a father who is trying to return his adopted child to an agency. The response of the public was pretty hostile so the took had to take the episode down.

Did you know about any of these before?
