Crap & Bugger Are Missing in England

Two Animal Movies Too Vulgar for the Youngest

Recently, the BBFC recently confronted the distributors of two animal films aimed at young children with classifications that weren't desirable. Consequently, they were censored.

For Pudsey the Dog: The Movie, the word "bugger" made the difference between the "U" rating (suitable for everyone) and a "PG" (parental guidance required for the youngest kids). "Bugger" can be used very broadly in the English language and can be meant rather harmless or become an insulting term for homosexuals. While its usage in Pudsey is most likely intended to be very harmless, a cut of 10 seconds duration was performed to wipe out any associations that a viewer could come up with. Since it's a British film, it's quite possible that this censorship is not reversed for the film's release in foreign markets.

"Company chose to remove a single use of mild bad language ('bugger') in order to obtain a U classification. Cut made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy. An uncut PG classification was available."

The other censored title is the American movie A Tiger's Tail. Here, the word "crap" had to go for the "U" rating. With this, it can be assumed that the two animals are now domesticated.

"Company chose to remove a use of mild bad language ('crap') in order to obtain a U classification. Cut made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy. An uncut PG classification was available."
