NBC Uses a Vega-matic Approach
So I guess it is okay to use every form of profanity ( or pretty close to it) on NBC, but heaven forbid you should want to say something like "Remember kids, God made you special and he loves you very much.", because that tag line by Bob The Tomato was edited out of every Veggie Tales show that is being broadcast by the peacock network. Read the Story Here.
How sad, especially for Phil Vischer, the creator of Veggie Tales. He came up with an amazingly creative and fun way for kids to learn about God's love, and in his naivety negotiated with NBC to show them on Saturday Morning kids viewing time. Little did he realize that they would edit out any "non historical" reference to God.
How totally out of touch can a network be? I ask you?
