1. Iran is not consequent
Istvan ,   BUDAPEST HUNGARY   (02.06.12)
Iran rejects any form of western culture, not the Simpsons only. But then be consequent and reject also western technology and western weapons. Instead of missiles, arm itself with traditional muslim weapons, swords and spears.
2. Talk about going back too the stone
Dyslexic..... ,   Israel....   (02.06.12)
ages,the Iranians are running back too the stone ages.They banned barbie dolls,just dont tell the Iranians that the Jews invented superman and spider man.Strange they use cell phones, lab tops some parts are made in Israel.
3. For once, I agree with Iran but for a different reason.
Devorah   (02.06.12)
The idiot Simpsons and its branding are part of the dumbing down of the U.S.
4. Mmmm Dohhhhhhhh
Tim ,   Brighton   (02.06.12)
And what about trousers? (Think Im joking?) What about the Imam who recently preached that Trousers for Men and Women apart from for soldiers are an evil Western influence and should be banned What do say about that Homey or should I say Hymi? Thats it!...By jove...I think Ive got it!..They think that Homey is a disguise for Hymi Simpson What amazing deduction...Sherlock Holmey Hymi would be proud!
5. My Simpson Collection

6. Burka Baby, Burka Baby, give me your hand
Joe ,   Florida, USA   (02.06.12)
Surely, Iran could have Burka Barbie, or even a Marge Simpson doll in latest greatest burka
7. Did anyone tell the Iranians?
K ,   Chicago, USA   (02.06.12)
Both Superman and Spiderman are Jewish. Yep their creators were/are Jewish. Let us keep this between ourselves. OK?
8. I have never seen a toy kitchen set...
William ,   Israel   (02.06.12)
include glasses for drinking alcohol.
9. #3 - and yet they're one of the few animated series...
William ,   Israel   (02.06.12)
which deal with timely socio-economic and political issues with intelligent cynicism. The other being South Park. I like both of these for the reasons I mentioned. The dumbing down of America sadly occurs on the 3 main networks (ABC, NBC, CBS) and CNN.
