The Simp­sons

There’ll be no nuclear dis­as­ters in Spring­field, at least not on Ger­man television.

Pro7, the chan­nel which broad­casts The Simp­sons in Ger­many, will remove or replace any cur­rent or future episodes of the car­toon sit­com that fea­ture a dis­as­ter at Mont­gomery Burns’ nuclear power plant.

Report­edly, net­works in Aus­tria and Switzer­land have done like­wise because, as we all know, car­toons are real, and if we air it on a car­toon in our coun­try, it will hap­pen to us.

It’s a reac­tion to the actual nuclear dis­as­ter tak­ing place in Japan’s Sendai pre­fec­ture fol­low­ing the earth­quake and tsunami.
