Another episode of "The Simpsons" withdrawn

Disney has pulled an episode of The Simpsons from its Hong Kong streaming service that, among other things, discusses Chinese work camps.

The absence of the episode "One Angry Lisa" was noted this week, according to the BBC, and it is unknown when it was removed.

Disney refused to respond to questions from the BBC regarding this.

Photos of the Great Wall of China were exhibited during a lecture attended by Marge Simpson in the episode, which aired last October.

The professor declares during that session, "Look at the wonders of China - Bitcoin mining and labor camps where children build cell phones."

The Simpsons have been televised in China multiple times since the early 2000s, and the most recent season is presently available on streaming platforms, albeit without this episode.

As a reminder, since the implementation of a set of contentious regulations in Hong Kong, the international media has been reporting on censorship.

Do you know why the Simpsons are yellow?

"The animator came up with the idea of ​​making the characters yellow, and as soon as she showed me how she painted them, I said, 'That's it!'" Groening said, adding: "When you change channels with the remote control, you also notice a flash of yellow on the flash. colors, you'll know right away that The Simpsons is being broadcast.

Meanwhile, yellow figures appeared in other popular cartoons as well, since it was discovered that this color strongly draws the eye. SpongeBob SquarePants, another well-known animated character and the main character of the same-named artist, is undoubtedly the most renowned example of this phenomenon.

Aside from The Simpsons' success, it should be noted that yellow is a popular option for makers of animated films and shows for the appearance of their characters and for other reasons. Yellow, in particular, is the most apparent color in the entire visual spectrum.
