Episode of Aussie children's show Bluey got 'banned' in the US because a character farted

Episode of Aussie children's show Bluey got 'banned' in the US because a character farted

It was ruled to be inappropriate for young viewers to see that type of content.

An episode of beloved Australian children's TV show Bluey has been cancelled in the US over something every single one of us has done before.

Disney has confirmed the episode, which is titled 'Family Meeting' has been banned from the season three lineup because one of the characters farts in a scene.

Yes, welcome to 2022 where farting is enough to get you censored.

According to the Daily Mail, Bluey's dad Bandit gets accused of letting off a bit of wind in front of his eldest daughter.

It's a scene that has probably played out in every single Aussie family living room since time immemorial.

When the series was acquired by Disney Junior, the corporation combed through each episode to see if it was up to their standards.

Apparently, 'Family Meeting' didn't pass the test and it was banned.

However, it seems like Disney has had a change of heart and will be reinstating the controversial episode.

A spokesperson for Disney Branded Television has told Pirates and Princesses that it will soon be available for streaming.

"'Family Meeting' will roll out on U.S. platforms soon," the employee stated.

"Some of the Bluey content did not meet Disney Junior broadcast S&P in place at the time the series was acquired.

"Now that it is rolling out on other platforms, it is a great opportunity to reevaluate which is what we plan to do."

It's isn't the time an episode of Bluey has been pulled and thrown on the cutting room floor.

Australia's national broadcaster confirmed in 2020 that 'Teasing' and 'Flat Pack' were removed because of the use of 'ooga booga'.

The term was introduced as a nickname given to Bandit by Bluey and Bingo, however there are worries that it could offend Aboriginal people.

The ABC said the term has 'racial connotations and a problematic history for Indigenous Australians' and the broadcaster decided to temporarily dump the two episodes.

A statement from the broadcaster said: "The ABC sincerely apologised to the complainant for any distress caused by the term used in the episode titled 'Teasing'.

"The ABC has a strong record for giving voice to Indigenous Australians and an ongoing commitment to helping reduce discrimination and prejudice and in this case, the language used was inadvertent.

"The complainant was advised that neither the ABC nor the external producers were aware of the potentially derogatory meaning of the term, which was intended only as irreverent rhyming slang often made up by children.

"The episode was removed from iview as soon as ABC KIDS became aware of the complaint and the ABC undertook to change the dialogue prior to future broadcast or publication."

Producers reworded the script so that it became unproblematic and could be reuploaded for streaming.
