Venezuela bans 'The Simpsons' as bad for kids

The long-running cartoon has been replaced after Chavez deemed it contained messages that go against the whole education of boys, girls and adolescents.

Elba Guillen, a spokesperson for Televen TV, the Venezuelan network that airs The Simpsons, says, "It had to be taken off. The government considers it to be a series that isn't appropriate for that time because it isn't appropriate for children."
