Cartoon Network Australia and New Zealand has censored several episodes of Regular Show. Their edits originate from UK on some episodes, because CNA also has a hate for moderately explicit words, such as "crap" and "piss" but they are not counted on this page. So far, 23 episodes have been edited, and at least 57 minutes and 26.736 seconds worth of removed scenes have been documented so far. The list of censored scenes are as follows:

Episodes with Australian Censorship

In General

All the episodes expect for Replaced that use the word "Sucker" was removed for an unknown reason. (This edit also happens on some shows as well.)


Season 1

"The Power"

  • When Mordecai and Rigby are singing their song to Skips, the line "Don't look at our crotches while we synchronize our watches!" is removed. It's also cut in UK and Europe.
    • As an interesting side-note, on Cartoon Network Australia, an advertisement for Regular Show included the complete line, which was then cut from the episode.
  • Shaved time: 1.65 seconds

"Just Set Up The Chairs"

  • The pan view scene of Muscle Man, Jimmy and the rest of the kids stranded on a landmass surrounded by infernos was cut.
  • Shaved time: 2.65 seconds

"Caffeinated Concert Tickets"

  • The scene when the Giant Coffee Bean quite comically squeezed coffee out of his breasts for Mordecai and Rigby to drink was cut.
  • The translator swinging the chainsaw at Mordecai and Rigby was cut.
  • "Oh, crap." was cut.
  • Much like the UK version, the reference to Fist Pump being released from jail and rehab in the concert commercial was not edited (unlike the UK, CN Australia actually kept in the "rock your 11-15 year old pants off!" line instead of changing "pants" to "jeans")
  • Shaved time: 7 seconds

"Death Punchies"

  • The word "sucky" from "He just digs with the sucky pickaxe." was removed.
  • The page from the Death Kwon Do book with the move "Pelvic Thrust of Death" was cut, as well as the quote "Some of my personal favorites."

  • Shaved time: 6.3 seconds

"Free Cake "

  • The scene of Skips decaying and turning to dust was shortened to be less graphic and for time reasons.

  • Shaved time: To be added...

"It's Time"

  • The two words "blood" and "guts" as well as their respective scenes were removed.
  • Rigby's line "They're just going to be talking about their feelings. Fully clothed!" in reference to Pajama Sisters 2 was cut.

"Jinx"

  • "Jinx" has been refused to be aired on Cartoon Network Australia due to the showing of blood and violence and the "Bloody Mary" reference.
  • Shaved time: 11 minutes

"See you there"

  • The word "jerks from "When you jerks spilled soda in my face," was cut.
  • Shaved time: To be added...

  • Rigby hitting Mordecai over the back with a fold-out chair was cut.

  • Muscle Man pretending to stab Mordecai to scare away one of the contestants was cut.
  • "That jerk!" was cut.
  • The close-up of the liquid nitrogen can was zoomed in, to only include the word "Liquid," in order to keep impressionable viewers from thinking that cryogenically freezing themselves is a good idea. While there has been conclusive feedback for living after cryogenic freezing, it is only limited to amphibians. If a mammal (i.e. human) tried it, then the subject would be dead from hypothermia. Although the written word "nitrogen" was censored, The Night Owl's remark at the end regarding liquid nitrogen wasn't cut, possibly due to difficulties of pronunciation and spelling.
  • The officer breaking the car window was cut.
  • "Hey, get out of the way, jerkface!" was changed to "Hey, get out of the way!" This edit caused the sentence to be out of sync.

"Skunked"

  • The beginning of the scene where Skips is explaining the properties of wereskunk spray was zoomed into his face, because his male breasts looked too much like female breasts.
  • Because of the choppiness that the previous edit would make, the transition to the next scene was changed, being a reversed version of it. Its obviousness can be seen with the stink lines on Rigby freezing and the smoothness of the transition.
  • Rigby pouring the coffee on himself was cut.
  • Shaved time: To be added...

"Karaoke Video"

  • The line "Go chew on your own gumballs, Benson!" was cut.
  • Shaved time: To be added...

Trivia

  • Regular Show is not the only censored series on Cartoon Network International. Others include:
  • Unlike Adventure Time, Regular Show's censors are mostly due to crude language, sexual innuendo, and scenes of reckless behavior that can easily be imitated in real life (i.e., breaking windows, groin kicking, fooling around with dangerous chemicals/appliances, etc), although some of the sexual references were kept in (and episodes that had too much of it were simply banned). Adventure Time is mostly censored for sexual innuendo and scenes considered too gross or violent to be shown to younger audiences (even though, on American television, both shows are rated PG for mild violence, crude language, and suggestive themes/humor/dialogue and are left uncut and uncensored. On Australia and New Zealand television, both shows are rated PG as well, despite being edited).
  • Previously, it was believed by Australian Regular Show fans that the four episodes "Benson Be Gone," "Muscle Woman", "More Smarter" and most recently, "Ello Gov'nor" were banned by CNA, but recently, the Title Search application on Foxtel (an Australian broadcasting program) proved otherwise, with "Benson Be Gone" on the 04/09/2012, "Muscle Woman" on the 04/11/2012, "More Smarter" on the 04/23/2012 and "Ello Gov'nor" on the 10/28/2012.
