MTV plans to go where BBC feared to tread

MTV Germany is planning to pilot the banned Popetown.

The BBC who commissioned the cartoon, written by many of Britiain’s leading comedy writers, refused to show it because it might offend Catholics (although offence didn’t stop them showing the Jerry Springer Opera). The Roman Catholic Church in Bavaria has decided to follow the lead of Scient’logy and Islam by demanding the cartoon not be shown and has gone to court to stop it.
