NBC Has Eased Up Editing God Out of VeggieTales


      To follow up on something reported in a previous blog some time ago, Focus on the Family's CitizenLink.com reported on 11/17/2006, “According to Phil Vischer, one of the creators of the children's cartoon VeggieTales, NBC has backed of its insistence that the Saturday-morning network version be free of references to God and the Bible. Big Idea, the creator of the hugely popular VeggieTales, teamed up with NBC to place the show in the Saturday cartoon lineup. But two weeks prior to its premier NBC told the show's producer the cartoon needed to be free of references to God and the Bible. On his blog, Vischer noted he'd heard a rumor that NBC received 600,000 e-mail letters critical of the network censorship — a rumor he said 'I can't confirm or deny.' 'But the last four or five episodes, most of which had at least as much theistic content as the earlier ones, if not more, came back from NBC standards-and-practices department with no requested edits. None,' he said. 'So they're going to air just the way they were originally written.' Madame Blueberry and King George and the Ducky are among the episodes that will air as written, he said, without a single edit. 'That's really cool, don't you think?' Vischer said. 'So if you stopped watching your Veggies on NBC out of protest, turn it back on! Your protest may have brought a little more light to TV's vast wasteland. Let NBC know you're thrilled with their recent choices by watching the show.'”
