Anti-Cartoon Censorship Stamp by Sycotei-B Anti-Cartoon Censorship Stamp by Sycotei-B
I made this as an expression of opinion. I think there is too much censorship on cartoons these days. I miss the old cartoons I used to watch when I was a kid, Loony Tunes, Rocko's Modern Life, Ren & Stimpy, ect. ect. Back then, there were explosives and violence, not like today were kids are exposed to nothing but low-brow entertanment, with the main characters being hyperactive retards with side-kicks that are exactly the same. Not only that, but they censor a lot of the original anime so it's more suitable for kids, which is retarded. Kids shouldn't even be allowed to watch anime if it has that stuff in it in the first place. As for the old cartoons I watched, they need to bring that stuff back because today's cartoons suck. It's not like those old cartoons are encouraging kids to blow up their house or hit each other with a hammer. Besides, kids don't go bad just from watching t.v., there are plenty of other things that can make them worse. If the parents don't like what their kids watch, they can just turn it off and prevent them from watching it. I grew up watching the violence, explosives and the other stuff that used to be in cartoons and my life turned out just fine.

And that's one reason why Dragon Ball Z Kai was not well received in America

I hate how parents get their underwear in a wad and go fuss to the companies about something 'offensive' in a cartoon... 

Like that thing about Derpy Hooves being offensive... :iconwthplz:

Tell me about it! Parents should never fear their their kids will be bored out of their minds with hearing nothing but, "BLAH-BLAH-BLAH" coming out of the parents' mouths, and this is coming from someone who was regretfully bored shitless whenever she got pulled aside for parental lectures and was urged to sit still throughout them, regardless of how "free" she wanted to be!

Censorship just shows the laziness of parents.  Here's what's wrong with censorship:

Swearing = What's the big deal?  You're probably gonna hear swearing in public some time.

Violence = Well, if your kid becomes violent, it's your fault for not teaching them about it.

Nudity = You see your own genitals when you're taking a shower of bath!

Smoking = Is it really worse to see smoking on TV than get secondhand smoke in real life?  If your kid starts smoking, you failed to teach him/her about it.

Homosexuality = Being gay is not bad!  Why can't people get that?!  -.-  Your kid watches TV and turns gay (being gay might be genetic though.)  So what if that happens?  Live and let live!

That SpongeBob episode is very inappropriate, since suicide is a serious issue.  It's a kid's show, so the creators should have at least made it more humorous without Mr. Krabs driving Plankton to suicide.  And the way they handled it was inappropriate, too.  But censorship is still wrong, so parents should at least watch a show first and decide whether the kid should watch it or not.

in my opinion censorship  can be applied only if the episode is offensive for the public, like make fun of suicide or teaching you that you must stay in a abusive relationship, the reason why is because some people actually find the episode One Coarse Meal offensive because it reminds them of when they were suicidal, but other like Regular Show don't reserve to be censored because it ruins the humor.
BTW, the writer of SpongeBob, especially Zeus Cervas and Casey Alexander, do not care what they do, and believe me that a lot of fans are angry that Casey Alexander no regrets episode like A pal for Gary and One coarse meal because he thinks that dark humor is funny. I not saying that censorship is good but there always a limit, I do not mind if they put swearing, violence, nudity, smoking or homosexuality in cartoons but if they cross the line to the point that offends the viewers it reserve to be banned, for example, in that review he make the difference between do something with respect or make episode like One coarse meal and Seahorse Seashell Party.
