Banned Dexter's Lab short online

This short from Dexter's Laboratory's sub-series, Dial M for Monkey, titled 'Barbequor' is allegedly banned in most places around the world because of its portrayal of gay stereotypes, it also incorperates allusions to alcohol abuse. Other than that it's a pretty amusing tribute to Marvel Comics' characters. The funny thing is though, despite being banned in most nations, including the US ... it's available on Cartoon Network Video, right now.

Cartoon Network Video - Barbequor

Sadly, I cannot embed CN Video, so you'lll have to make due with the above link. I happen to like the short, it's amusing to see a clever spoof of Marvel's Galactus, Devourer of Worlds; not to mention the Justice Friends, which are also Marvel spoofs. This short also marks the only time you see the Justice Friend, Snow Man.
