Production Notes

Controversy

  • In 2004, this episode was banned from airing in America, Canada, Latin America and the United Kingdom. For awhile, it was famously rumored that the episode was banned due to Spooner being considered a stereotype of gay men and Krunk getting drunk at the end, but eventually it turned out that the episode was banned due to threats by the creators of Silver Surfer over at Marvel Comics who viewed the Silver Spooner as a misuse of their character and a potential copyright infringement. As a result, the DVD release, digital retailer releases and subsequent airings deleted the episode and replaced it with "Dexter's Lab: A Story". However, it was included on the Season One DVD release in Region 4.
