Kenya’s government has banned six animated shows airing on Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network to battle what it described as attempts to “glorify homosexual behavior” and “impair” the moral judgment of children.  Channel 24 reported on Monday that The Kenya Film Classification Board has singled out Nickelodeon’s shows “The Loud House,” “The Legend of Korra” and “Hey Arnold,” along with the Cartoon Network shows “Steven Universe,” “Adventure Time,” and “Clarence,” accusing them of “damaging” the family. According to the KFCB complaint, the shows in question have

been trying to “normalize, glamorize, and even glorify homosexual behavior.” The Kenyan censors have said that the six cartoons “are intended to introduce children to deviant behavior,” calling such efforts “obnoxious and inappropriate.” KFCB further added that such material “targets children and seeks to impair their moral judgment on the institution of family,” and has written to MultiChoice, the owners of DStv, where the shows are aired, to inform them about the ban.
