7 Cartoons Have Tragically Been Banned From Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon And Disney XD Africa Due To Homosexual (Or Gay) Behaviour (And Violent Language)

The outrages reasons are now surfacing as to why Ezekiel Mutua, the censorship tsar of Kenya's censorship board, last week abruptly banned 7 cartoons on Nickelodeon (DStv 305), Disney XD (DStv 304) and Cartoon Network (DStv 301) for being homosexual (gay).

The bizarre reasons provided by Kenya's Film Classification Board (KFCB) it seemingly took straight from the internet without having actually watched and screened the various kids cartoons, are mind-bogglingly insane and shockingly unbelievable.

Ezekiel Mutua, KFCB CEO, told MultiChoice the 7 cartoons must be off the air on the DStv and GOtv satellite pay-TV platforms over seemingly foolish reasons, ranging from one character "who has a dick for a head", to two characters who go on an (unseen) "implied romantic vacation".

While on a superficial level Kenya's censorship and banning of kids cartoons might seem silly, it has systemic and operational real-world consequences for South African and African TV viewers far beyond the borders of the East African country.

Since channel distributors often only has one TV channel broadcast feed for Africa, a ban of content on a channel in one country, like Kenya or Nigeria - that a channel distributor then must agree to - means one of two things.

Either the whole channel must be completely blocked and be made unavailable in the affected country, or the content deemed offensive on the TV channel must be removed from the linear broadcast schedule.

Since we share one similar channel feed for more than one country, this means that the content is taken away not just from viewers in the country affected, but from millions of DStv subscribers right across several African countries, including South Africa.

The 7 cartoons are now abruptly banned, with the KFCB's shocking censorship that is creating problems for not just MultiChoice and DStv, but also the channel and content providers Walt Disney Africa, Viacom International Media Networks Africa (VIMN Africa) and Turner Broadcasting EMEA that respectively run and programme the Disney XD, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network channels.

Some of the cartoons are not even airing anymore and ended years ago - for instance the now-banned The Legend of Korra that finished its run in 2014 (it would have aired on NickToons by now).

After responding to a media enquiry, the KFCB says the 7 cartoons - Loud House, The Legend of Korra, Hey Arnold, Clarence, Steven Universe, Adventure Time and Star vs the Forces of Evil are TV children programmes "with homosexual themes".

The KFCB says it doesn't matter that the shows don't include or show any overt on-screen "gayness".

If a show's creator said a character is gay - in the way that JR Rowling after the conclusion of the Harry Potter series said that Prof Dumbledore is gay - that is enough for Kenya's censors to order a ban on a kids cartoon on MultiChoice's DStv platform.

The KFCB says its "investigations focused on both current and previous programmes that are not suitable for children.

The KFCB - that said it banned the cartoons because it believes that the Nickelodeon, Disney XD and Cartoon Network shows "are intended to introduce children to deviant behaviour".

The KFCB says Kenya's constitution "only recognizes marriage between people of the opposite sex. From these references to the Kenya Constitution 2010, it is clear that homosexuality is not part of the culture, national values and the concept of a family."

"Further, it is important to note that South Africa is the only African country that recognizes same sex marriages. The Kenyan government has a responsibility to protect children against harmful exposure to negative media content and this is what the KFCB is doing as part of its mandate."

The KFCB provided the following reasons for why it banned each of the 7 cartoons on Nickelodeon, Disney XD and Cartoon Network:

The Loud House
The KFCB is so uninformed that it missed the announcement of self-censorship by VIMN Africa in mid-2016 when Viacom International "assured" DStv subscribers that it won't be broadcasting on television anywhere in Africa the "Overnight Success" episode on the Nickelodeon channel featuring the flash-appearance of two gay dads.

The KFCB has now banned the Loud House series over an episode that was never even broadcast in Kenya in the first place.

Star vs the Forces of Evil
KFCB would ban a cartoon that couldn't possibly have seen yet. Disney XD just started showing the second season of the show on the channel across Africa and is now at episode 8. It will be quite a while before episode 20, "Just Friends", makes it to actual TV screens that does contain a fleeting kiss - if you know where to pause and look closely in the background.

Legend of Korra
The KFCB decided to ban The Legend of Korra since the creator, after the conclusion of the show in 2014, said that two characters are lesbian. Yet nothing romantic during the duration of the show was ever shown on-screen.

Legend of Korra is banned although it isn't even showing on Nickelodeon currently.

Adventure Time
The KFCB decided to ban Adventure Time on fake reasons and alleges that "the creator said the two main characters are in a gay relationship".
Not only are Princess Bubblegum and Marceline not the main characters as the KFCB alleges, but the creator, Pendleton Ward, has never said anything to that effect ever.

The closest is actress Olivia Olsen voicing the character of Marceline, at a book signing, who said that in her personal opinion Marceline is likely lesbian but that the show will never venture into that territory since "in some countries where the show airs, it's sort of illegal".

Steven Universe
The KFCB found a correct quote from an interview with the website Movie Pilot with the show's creator. Ruby and Sapphire are indeed lesbians, according to the show's creator, but viewers will have to watch the show with that specific subtext to see that.

The KFCB however seems to read a lot of fanfiction. Is Pearl and Rose gay? The creator hasn't confirmed or mentioned anything.

Gravity Falls
Explaining why it banned this cartoon, the KFCB again lies and says a character calls someone "bitch". Nobody says this to another character and the word is never spoken.
What happens is that a character called Grunkle Stan once says "son of a ..." before the scene cuts away.

The KFCB lies when it says the characters watch porn. It's never happened. The show also finished in 2016 already. Like The Legend of Korra, the show's creator, after the conclusion of the series, said Sheriff Blubs and Deputy Durand are gay, although its never ever mentioned or explored in the show.

Hey Arnold
The KFCB says "Arnold is taught the wonders of sexual stamina and given stories about sex". Nowhere in the series does that ever happening.
As proof of these and other simply not there things, the KFCB seems to have found a website that tries to find so-called "dirty jokes" in the cartoon.

The KFCB says Arnold's grandpa "had a dick for a head – head is in the shape of a penis and somewhere in the scene there is a poster written 'try my sausage".

It's real, definitive proof according to the KFCB that Hey Arnold isn't meant for children.
Luckily Hey Arnold isn't even on Nickelodeon currently but was on NickToons until this whole thing happened, so the KFCB didn't have to bother.

What Should Be Done With Disney Channels?

Disney Channel was the number one destination for kids 24/7. The home of Mickey Mouse, even its logo then and now have Mickey Mouse but Disney Junior bares a resemblance to the character and that only leaves Disney XD without a Mickey Mouse based logo. Offers the best and memorable movies of a lifetime such as The Lion King, Cinderella, Camp Rock, High School Musical and much more.

Disney Channel before was home to the best shows. For girls there was popular live-action series Hannah Montana, That's So Raven and Kim Possible and the boys there was American Dragon, Kid Vz Kat and the ever popular Phineas and Ferb. Years later it got revamped into an all girls channel offering new and old series from the archives such as Liv and Maddie, Jessie, Shake It Up and Lolirock and still airs classics such as Hannah Montana and That's So Raven. Sometime in 2014 got a new look and welcomed even more old programming but this time for boys such as Gravity Falls, Zack and Cody, The Suite Life, preschool programming such as Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Handy Manny. In 2015 began the ending and cancellation of series such as Gravity Falls (cancelled), Jessie (ended), Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (Specials), Phineas and Ferb (Special: Last Day Of Summer) and Austin and Ally (ended). They still air on Disney Channel and on other channels such as Disney XD and Disney Junior. Current series are Hank Zipzer, Bunk'd, K.C. Undercover (varies), Star vz. the forces of evil (varies) and many more

Disney XD broadcasts 18 hours a day seven days a week (18/7) before known as Jetix, FOX Kids and later Toon Disney. Jetix and FOX Kids aired programs such as Sonic the Hedgehog, The Simpsons, Dennis the Menace, Heatcliff, Garfield along with Mona the Vampire while Toon Disney home for the best in great cartoons 24/7 such as Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Kim Possible, Phineas and Ferb, American Dragon, Handy Manny, Tarzan and 101 Dalmatians till they got discontinued. Disney XD, boy focused channel home to some of the programs from the Disney archives such as Phineas and Ferb, Aaron Stone and Kid Vz Kat along with originals such as Rated A For Awesome, Pair of Kings, Kick Buttowski, Lab Rats, Kickin It and Gamers Guide To Pretty Much Everything. Disney fans still discuss on the hope of reviving Toon Disney.

Disney Junior (before Playhouse Disney) home for preschool programming 24/7 such as Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Sofia the First while offering Disney's classics Tarzan, Timon and Pumbaa, Aladdin and Emperors New School. Latest series to the line-up is The Lion Guard, P.J Masks, Miles from Tomorrow and Sheriff Callie's Wild West.

Since when viewers entertainment offering began evolving in countries. Channel operators began trying to improve the growth within countries like dumping one channel for another but with more enhanced programming e.g Discovery World to Discovery Family, FOX Crime to FOX Life and Trace Sports Starts to Trace Africa/Trace Mziki. Even the revamping of some channel operators such as BBC Knowledge to BBC Earth, ID Discovery to ID Xtra and Style Network to Esquire Network.

So heres my opinion on how the channels should be ranged:

Disney Channel becomes a family kids channel for boys and girls and offers another kids channel which will sit alongside Disney XD and Disney Junior but this time its an current version of Disney Channel an all girls channel.

Disney XD could probably get a new look, new name but still target the same audience (boys) but this time 24 hours a day. Make it more of a toon channel (Nicktoons - repeats and originals) with little live-action programs along the side (still for boys) with an age gap of 4-9 or 6-12.

Disney Junior - no change it all except program arrangement and focus on bringing back the movie slot.

The other kids channel which they should consider launching for girls should have that teen focus (TeenNick - repeats and originals) with more live-action and a bit of animated like Disney Channel.

These are my opinions not facts, feel free to comment on this article.
