The German television station Pro7,
the channel that airs The Simpsons in Germany, will be screening current and future episodes of the show and remove or replace any that feature a disaster at Mr. Burns’ nuclear power plant.
Austria has followed suit: Calling them “unsuitable”, the Austrian public television company ORF has pulled two Simpsons’ episodes which were set to air in the near future, because the episodes included the topic of nuclear disaster. Wow. This seems a bit harsh, doesn’t it? The topic of nuclear mishap is a running gag through the entire series.
