Citing the need to protect children, Ukraine's National Commission for the Protection of Morality wants to ban children's shows SpongeBob SquarePants and Teletubbies.

According to the Ukrainian newspaper Ukrainskaya Pravda, the commission declared that the cartoon character SpongeBob SquarePants is gay and that the British BBC children's television series Teletubbies “deliberately aims to create subnormal [men] who spend all day in front of the television with their mouths open swallowing all types of information.”

Such behavior, the commission claimed, is linked to the “psychology of losers.”

Other shows such as The Simpsons, Family Guy, Pokemon and Futurama are “projects aimed at the destruction of the family, and the promotion of drugs and other vices.”

The commission cites “a real threat to children” in proposing a nationwide ban on the series.
