So I recently heard about how CN had to censor most if not all of the audio commentaries on the Adventure Time season DVD/BD sets and it got me to thinking about something. If CN was going to restrict what could and could not be said why did the people involved in the commentaries do it anyway. Did they they not care or did they think that because AT has quite a large adult fanbase (myself included and I just started watching the show proper the other week) they thought CN would make an exception

What was being censored? Were swear words being bleeped out? If that was the case, likely the case was the people on the commentaries just talked and CN would handle editing it.Although it has a large adult/teen fanbase, it is still mostly intended for kids. I think they want the bonus material to be similar in content as the show. Since you are not going to be hearing f-bombs on AT, then they don't want it in the commentary. This doesn't just apply to CN. I know on The Middle season sets, swearing in the blooper reels are bleeped.

From what I've heard, it just goes silent for extended periods. If it were just beeping swears, I don't think people would have a problem with it. Of course, I don't own the DVD and am relying on second-hand knowledge, so I could be completely mistaken.

It probably relates more to the subject matter of the content. They probably thought some of the conversations were either too risque or controversial for kids. I know there are a subtle few adult references in the series that CN would want to avoid discussions about.

The original commentaries on the season 1 DVD got away with saying "hell" and a porn reference, why start censoring now?

Same reason Season 1 had things like a heart exploding with blood everywhere?

For the season 2 DVD, there was a LOT of ukelele music that works for a "censor", it comes up a lot and goes on for a while. I guess they think it's funny (it isn't). Not that the commentating itself is that interesting...

Ive watched the entire season 3 commentary, and the censored moments seem to be when they begin to mention things that have nothing to do with adventure time or cn, so naturally they have to censor things that they dont have the rights to.

I didn't think she could do a higher pitched voice. Then again, I didn't think she could do a grandma voice, but she did.
