You Can't Do That On Television, Bitches

Has it really come to this?

"Suspected gang members opened fire on a Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards after-party early Sunday, wounding three and scattering 200 mostly teenage attendees, police said."

Wow. This reminds me of some of the other, lesser-known kids shows scandals of the past:

  • Sesame Street's Luis and Cypress Hill's B-Real conducting a drive-by on the Teletubbies while yelling, "Today's show is brought to you by the numbers 1-8-7, putos!"
  • Mr. Rogers busting into the Children's Televison Network Christmas party and exclaiming, "Say hello to my little neighbor", who happened to be a midget with a knife
  • Captain Kangaroo accused of offering to "swab the poopdeck" of several female naval officers during the 1991 Tailhook scandal in Las Vegas
  • H.R. Pufnstuf caught trying to use Freddie the Flute as a makeshift crack pipe
  • Mr. McFeely attempting to flee from Chris Hanson and the Dateline NBC "Predators" team
