Thousands of Christian parents all of the country were so encouraged when they heard about “Curse-Free TV”. The premise is simple: The system listens and looks for any type of profanity, and replaces it with a similar, less offensive word that is OK to be heard in your perfect Christian home.
If only the English language were so simple. Sometimes, we use words that in some contexts may be acceptable, but in another, it’s offensive. Thankfully, this caused a lot of entertainment, and even taught some kids some new bad words.
When watching Father of the Bride, he sings “What’s New Pussycat”. It censored it to “What’s New Wimp Cat”
CFTV would bleep out “jugs” on Survivor. Everybody scrambling to get their water***** was pretty funny
Sex=hugs. ALWAYS. Even when it means gender: “What’s the baby’s hugs?”
In Dumb and Dumber someone said “kiss my ass”- it censored it to “kiss my sandwich”
My family had Guardian on our DVD player. Whenever we watched Toy Story it would censor Woody’s name
Die Hard: “Yippee ka-yay mamacita!”
A main characters name was Dick….made for a very confusing movie
In “The Help”, the infamous “Eat my shit” line changed to “Eat my spit” which made absolutely no sense
Cloverfield: “Did you now that he and Beth hugged? They had hugs” I was a very confused 8 year old
It couldn’t say “balls” so it kept referring to chocolates as malted milk ‘tails’
Josie and the Pussycats became Josie and the Wimps haha
I learned “pussy” was a bad word because it kept muting “Puss in Boots” in Shrek and asked my mom why it was being bleeped
Christian parents were just trying their best with what they had at their disposal, but we can all thank them for the endless entertainment it provided.
