Here are the most banned shows, and the (sometimes rational, sometimes questionable) reasons why they were off limits!
1. SpongeBob SquarePants
2. Dora the Explorer
3. Zoey 101
5. Horrible Histories
6. Many Cartoon Network shows, but Ed, Edd ‘n Eddy especially.
7. Johnny Bravo
8. Grange Hill
9. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
10. Max and Ruby
11. Horrid Henry
13. The Story of Tracy Beaker

16. Pee-wee's Playhouse
17. Barney & Friends
19. Thomas & Friends
21. The Flintstones
22. And finally, The Simpsons, which isn't a kid's show per se, but was submitted too many times to not get a mention.
