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.

Nickelodeon Announces New & Returning Shows, Specials And Events, Plus Slate Of Series Putting Real Kids On TV For 2017+Round Up News (For Africa)

Following its best Q1 performance in
the kids six to 11 demo in five years, Nickelodeon swung into New York for its 2017/18 upfront presentation riding a wave of momentum and touting a content pipeline stacked with nearly 700 episodes of new and returning series.

It is the first of a four-film Nick/Paramount theatrical slate and will be directed by Dylan Brown for a July 2018 premiere. A Nick TV series adaptation will follow in 2019.

Sheer Genius! Kids From Grey Primary School & DF Malhherbe High School Make It Through Nickelodeon's Genius Quiz Challenge Show, Eastern Cape's Finalists Announced

Eastern Cape’s smartest kids went head-to-head in the regional heats of Nickelodeon’s Genius brought to you by ABSA.  After a gruelling two days of maths quizzes, science experiments and problem-solving tasks, teams from Grey High School and DF Malherbe in Port Elizabeth made it through to the next leg of the TV quiz show.  

Heading onto the next phase of Nickelodeon’s Genius are Ethan John, James Smith, Christian Davidson from Grey Primary School and Brad Spies, Gareth Pienaar and Daniella Recchia from DF Malherbe High School.

The two qualifying teams from EC will next appear in the Nickelodeon Genius TV game show, where they will square up against teams from all over South Africa.

A total of 36 kids aged 11-16 from schools throughout the region gathered at the Nelson Mandela Science Centre in Uitenhage (27-28 October) to take part in the Genius workshop and quiz knockout, designed to test their maths and science know-how to the limit as part of the joint initiative between Nickelodeon and ABSA.

“All the kids in EC showed resilience and spirit. The competition was very tight but our two finalists really knew their stuff, and 100% deserved to get through. Although only two teams could be selected, every child who took part should be extremely proud of themselves.  We are super-stoked for the winning teams and cannot wait to see them take part in the finals,” said Tasania Parsadh, Channel Director, Nickelodeon, Africa,”

Nickelodeon’s Genius is powered by ABSA MegaU, and supported by the  Department of Basic Education (DBE) and the Department of Science and Technology (DST).  The winners will receive an amazing prize: a ZAR 100,000 ABSA MegaU account for each member of the winning team and an unforgettable visit to NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, USA - where the winners will eat lunch with an astronaut – and a trip to Universal Studios.

After a once-in-a-lifetime trip to New York, USA, Ayush Ramchurran, winner of Nickelodeon’s Ultimate Toy Run with Toys R Us, has returned home to South African triumphant after winning the ultimate prize in the international leg of the thrilling competition.
Ayush, 11, and his family travelled abroad for the first time ever when they jetted out of  South Africa to take part in the grand finale in New Jersey.
Racing against the clock, Ayush managed to grab a giant heap of toys and gadgets - mostly electronic devices not currently available in SA stores. His new toy collection consists of: drones with cameras, exclusive Fast and Furious model cars, virtual reality headsets, limited edition XBox and PS4 consoles, and accessories to go with them, and Nerf Guns - to mention but a few.
“The Toys R Us store was MASSIVE with a wider variety of toys than I had ever dreamed of! I think I took enough toys to last me my entire childhood. It was epic as I would never have dreamt of getting such awesome toys,” says an excited Ayush
The highlight of Ayush’s trip was a visit to the Top of the Rock (the viewing platform at the top of the Rockerfeller Center), where he was mesmerised by breathtaking views of New York. He also loved travelling on the famed New York subway, taking a ferry trip across the Hudson River to the Statue of Liberty, and sightseeing on the hop-on, hop-off bus.
“I would have to say that every day was a totally extraordinary day in New York as there were so many amazing sites….it was just like the movies, so picturesque!!!”
The trip included many firsts for the intrepid young explorer as he tried hot dogs and Bagel’s Monster Pretzels, which he reports were all yummy!  His advice to any kid who might win a prize like this? “Enjoy every moment and make memories forever…and have fun, fun, fun!”
Ayush’s once in a lifetime Toy Run debuts on NickToons on Friday 18 November @ 14:45 CAT and repeats on Saturday 19 November @11:50 CAT and Sunday 20 November @16:00 CAT.
