Episodes of the Simpsons cartoon banned in several countries

Several episodes of The Simpsons are being pulled from various countries because of the Japan crisis.

The world's most famous cartoon isn't being punished because of unacceptable language but because several episodes mock the possibility of a Nuclear Meltdown.

Homer, who works at the nuclear power plan has a very lackluster approach to his job, violating most safety standards, sleeping on the job, and unable to take any decisions in times of a crisis.

The satire has long be applauded, but the sensitive nature of Japan's ongoing nuclear meltdown may prove too much for viewers in Europe and Japan. Broadcasters in Germany, Switzerland and Australia, have so far pulled episodes, and others may follow.

Will The Simpons have to tone down their future episodes regarding the infamous Springfield Power Plant run by the notoriously self centered Mr Burns?
