Banned Muppet Babies Episode

Banned might be too strong a word here, but either way this episode never saw the light of day. Rumor has it that the creators of the Muppet Babies stepped over the line in this episode by using virtually any and every video game reference that was available at the time, 1989. A few people over at Nintendo and other gaming companies had a problem with the use of images from their games and told the creators of the Muppet Babies to pull the plug on the episode or face the consequenes. Probably a good idea they decided to pull it, as you can see the Muppets didn't exactly tip toe around any of the references. It would have been a great chance to do a little cross promotion by the video game people didn't see it that way.
