I was in a shop once and 'Never Be Lonely' by The Feeling was playing and 'bloody' was censored in that .
Off topic, but I can beat that!

I was in a shop and the line 'All the best women are married, all the handsome men are gay' was cut out of Robbie Williams 'Love Supreme'.

Offensive to spinsters?
Offensive to straight men?
I still haven't worked it out.

That's one of the few songs I like of his. I think the only other ones I like are No Regrets and Tripping. I can't stand Millennium and I *hate* Angels with a passion.

Anyway, as a straight man I am not offended by the above line. However, if he added the line, "DVDfever is a complete..." and added a swear word then I might be inclined to step in

On the episode "Monty Can't Buy Me Love" when Monty Burns is on the radio show, he is asked on how many weiners he has had. When Monty gives his answer, Jerry Rude (the DJ) says **cough**queer**cough**. Channel 4 have edited the queer bit out so that he just coughs, which makes no sense.

Also in the episode, D'oh-in in the Wind, several lines are cut out when Chief Wiggum finds out that Lou has drunk the spiked juice, he takes it, dabs his finger in and gives a lick and exclaims "My God" when it should be like this:-

Wiggum: I ... see.
[Chief Wiggum takes the bottle from Lou's hand and dabs his finger with it, giving it a taste]
Wiggum: My God, it's nothing but carrots and peyote.
Eddie: Damn longhairs never learn, Chief.
Wiggum: Eh, it's time for an old-fashioned hippie ass-whomping!

In the episode Bart The Murderer, who/what exactly is Bart referring to when he says "He sure is, Patrone" during the scene where Fat Tony offers to sort out Skinner?

I assumed it was Italian for Patron (Owner/Boss).

In the episode "Kidney Trouble", the family go to a Wild West themed town.
C4 cut out everything about the town being founded by prostitutes, with brothels every other building.
The town guide saying that it was the kind of town where a cowboy could spend a months wages in three minutes makes no sense if you haven't seen the uncut vesion.

I saw another episode in a 6pm slot the other day - Marge Simpson in: Screaming Yellow Honkers, I think - but given all the nanny-state censorship I was surprised they left in a bit with Moe saying something to her like, "Don't you fancy me? Not even sexually?" and pestering her for a while. It was the episode with the Canyonero.

I heard a version of the Panic at the Disco song, 'I write sins, not tragedies' where the line "I chimed in with a haven't you people ever heard of closing the god damn door" had the word god censored but not the word damn. Also had the line "the poor groomsbride was a whore" uncensored before it as well.

It was mental really.

Just watched my recording of the Cartridge Family, thinking things might be a bit different at 7pm... No. It still made it look like Marge threw the gun away in the bin, by cutting out the bit where she twirls it, grins because she has the gun and puts it away in her handbag.

Anyone else notice they censored the scene in the Nessy episode where the radio DJ calls Mr Burns a queer? I'll bet it wouldn't even stick in my mind if they didn't mess around and remove it

Has anyone noticed the crude audio edit made on the DVD version of Marge in Chains? During the part where the 2 Japanese workers are packing boxes and laughing about having the flu, their laughing is suddenly muted for a few seconds, before one of them coughs audibly again. On my BBC2 tape of this episode, the laugh in its entirety was present, but on the DVD it's not.

Was there ever a reason for this?

It was exactly the same on the Crime & Punishment VHS release, I agree it seems odd, but there must be a reason for it.

Reminds me of when they changed the subtitles to the episode where Homer moans about paying the 'bear tax'.

"We're here, we're queer, we don't want any more bears!" had the 'queer' changed to a repeat of 'here', so it made no sense when he said he heard the chant at the Moustache Parade.

I thought the creators did that in a way? Or FOX. From the American airings of the show I've seen, it's also beeped there. But I've seen extra scenes in some of our airings too, which apparently are the versions shown on [adult swim] in America.
Often the creators bleep it for the comedy effect.

A classic example is the slow, drawn-out "FUUUUUUCK YOU" from the Grinds My Gears episode of family guy, where they took special care in the animation to make sure you could read his lips during the bleep.

That's why Ramsay's shows are bleeped in the US but unbleeped over here
Hahah, my wife watches Hell's Kitchen, and when I'm in the other room all the dialog is muffled, but the bleeping carries very well. It sounds like someone at Fox is trying to communicate with me via morse code.

I always thought it was due to Japanese show dubbing always being bad and obvious, hence the Japanese workers' mouths and voices do not match.

Has anyone noticed when Apu marries Manjula Homer tries to stop it by donning an elephant head and pretening to tbe a god...the bit where he first tries to stop the wedding is cut out but later they show him up a tree with an elephant head being poked. It's so stupid. Oh and when Homer and Marge try and rekindle the romance by going away and he's talking to lenny an Carl they make naughty comments, then when Marge drives up and they're polite, they've cut out the "perverts" out of her response.

C4 haven't screened season 16 yet, I hope this means it'll be shown soon.

No doubt it'll be tucked away on Sunday afternoons when no-one watches, which is where new eps seem to go, since they get no ratings.
