    angry Why did 4kids have to go and ruin pokemon?

    I think 4kids ruined the old pokemon TV show, they banned 5 episodes for COMPLETELY STUPID REASONS
    And then one time Ash said: Hey! and then about 4 seconds later he said: A Pidgeot!
    I think they completely ruined pokemon anime, thank god they don't run pokemon D&P...
    Honestly, who throws cheese?

    They banned that one episode with tentacruel because they thought people might think it was related to 9/11 or something. But you can find on dvd or vhs, I have it already.

    I knew about pokemon through watching the chinese version, I'm actually more used to calling Misty and Brock xiao xia and xiao gang respectively. I was around five when I watched them, and the chinese version had all the unedited versions inside besides the infamous Porygon one. I remember I was wondering why James had boobs at the time...

    Seizures, boobs on guys, guns, recent earthquakes are stupid reasons to cancel episodes?

    Also, what do you mean 4kids? Cartoon Network and WB have had the rights to Pokemon, not 4kids.

    The banned episodes of pokemon weren't what ruined pokemon, it was the voice acting, characters, and plot.

    4Kids can't take all the blame either. Pokemon USA asked them to americanize the first movie, who says that they didn't ask 4Kids to do the same for episodes as well?

    It's just now Al Kahn believes that American kids are doing nothing but playing video games, watching TV and going on the Internet. "The kids these days don't read." lolz (Apparently the Internet must've learned how to bypass all the text other people have to deal with so the kids don't have to read it. )
    And he's proud that he can edit a show so much that kids don't know it's from Japan. What an idiot. "Manga is not going to be big here. Kids have never read before; they never will. They spend too much time on the Internet. We stream our videos and make sure the kids watch the show enough to want to by the merchadise. The content is free; the merchandise is not."

    They pick the easier-to-censor shows. If they picked any show we'd have 1 minute episodes of Elven Lied.

    They just so paranoid about censorship to the point where they don't care about the quality of the show

    The main point is America = censorship>quality.

    That's why.
