Venezuela to Simpsons: Get Out, Gringos!

4/8/2008 5:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Simpsons out, Baywatch inChavez Venezuela has yanked "The Simpsons" off the air, claiming it may be inappropriate for children. Aye carumba!

Replacing the Simpson family - "Baywatch Hawaii" - a wholesome show where half naked bodyguards strut their enhanced ta-tas on the beach.

The decision was made to get rid of "The Simpsons" after several viewers complained to Venezuela's National Telecommunications Commission. Elba Guillen, a spokeswoman for Televen TV in Caracas, said showing the animated cartoon series at 11 a.m. could violate national
regulations prohibiting "messages that go against the whole education of boys, girls and adolescents." We're guessing Venezuela doesn't get irony.

Insert comical name here    

Those darn Simpson kids, thinking on their own and all and ignoring the evil dictators wants. Jiggly boobies are so much more wholesome, if the masses are busy doing the hand jive in front to ftheir tvs maybe they won't notice they are being opressed.

#3 are you ignorant? The simpsons are the number 1 viewed tv show in that time slot in Venezuela. Its Chavez who pulled the plug on them, without anyone elses consent. Thats what communist is, its led by one person and one persons opinion rules all. So do me a favor, go move to a communist country and make that statement about their government like the one u just made about ours, and see how long before you disappear.

Angry Democrat 'Sky Blu' from LMFAO attack GOP Romney on Purpose .    

The simpsons ? It a shame that hugo chavez ,a dictator who is vehemently anti-catholic & anti semitic, has taken over that country. Venezuela was a great place to visit.

Yeah……

The series is how old & someone in the country just watched an episode?

Idiots!!

Get with the times.

I have been taping the show since the December 1989 premiere (never watched it on Tracey’s show)

The show is NOT up to it’s old quality.

The Simpsons is a series that is now well past its sell by date. It stopped being funny years ago and someone should have the good sense to pull it off the air here as well. Meh....
