No matter whether you’re an adult or a kid, you probably have your own list of favorite cartoons. Unfortunately, some kids’ shows are banned in several countries.
Here has found an explanation for such measures against popular animated movies.
13. Winnie the Pooh

Banned in: China.
Reason: The resemblance between the main character and China’s president.
Measures: The cartoon and the series are banned on TV in this country.
It started with innocent pictures that depicted a comparison of the bear with Chinese President Xi Jinping. This cute honey-addicted animal has much in common with China’s leader, and Chinese users say they even have similar character traits.
12. Peppa Pig

Banned in: Australia.
Reason: Teaches children not to be afraid of dangerous insects.
Measures: Episodes are banned on TV throughout the country.
This cute cartoon was banned after an episode where the pigs started to live with a spider. This episode teaches the world to be friendly to bugs, but for Australia, where more than 10,000 species of spiders (some poisonous) live, such advice is pretty dangerous. That’s why Australians are against any friendship with 8-legged creatures.
