Jiminy Cricket! What Did They Do To That Song?

The music publishing house Bourne Co. has sued 20th Century Fox, Fox Broadcasting, the Cartoon Network and others over a parody of "When You Wish Upon a Star" from Disney's Pinocchio, which won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 1940. Bourne claims that the parody, sung for a 2000 episode of Fox's The Family Guy, included anti-Semitic phrases that led to the episode's being yanked from the air. However, according to the lawsuit, more than 1 million copies of the show have been sold in various formats.
