The blog Lyris-Lite is reporting that the British Board of Film Censors, the equivalent of the MPAA in the US, has censored over 3 minutes of an upcoming dvd release of REN & STIMPY seasons 1 and 2. The censored segment is the “Hanging Song” from the episode OUT WEST, which was cut because “the subject of hanging is presented as comedic, fun and risk free, on the grounds of potential harm to the likely audience and in accordance with the Video Recordings Act 1984.” More details HERE.
