The Ukraine are set to ban a number of cartoons on the basis that they are 'a threat to children'.

The country's 'National Expert Commission for Protecting Public Morality' is planning to meet in an effort to discuss whether or not cartoons and films such as Spongebob Squarepants and Shrek are too immoral to broadcast. Even Disney classics such as The Lion King and Jungle Book have come under scrutiny.

Handbag wielding Teletubbies character Tinky Winky came under considerable fire with the watchdog accusing him of 'promoting homosexuality' while at the same time encouraging children to 'repeat nonsense phrases in a brazen manner, in front of adults they don’t know'.

"Spongebob Squarepants is a gay cartoon character who is a “real threat” to Ukrainian children, according to the country’s morality watchdog."
