The Simpsons Banned In Venezuela
THE SIMPSONS has been banned in Venezuela by President HUGO CHAVEZ, because the animated TV show is "unsuitable for children".
The long-running cartoon has been replaced after Chavez deemed it contained "messages that go against the whole education of boys, girls and adolescents".
Elba Guillen, a spokesperson for Televen TV, the Venezuelan network that airs The Simpsons, says, "It had to be taken off. The government considers it to be a series that isn't appropriate for that time because it isn't appropriate for children."
