Rastamouse Most Complained About Children's TV Show Of 2011 After Sparking Racism Row
A BBC TV series about a crime-fighting Rastafarian mouse was the most complained about children’s programme last year.
A BBC spokesman confirmed that nine out of ten complaints had been about the language spoken by Rastamouse and his Easycrew, but added: “This was one of our most popular children’s programmes last year.
“We have had a huge amount of positive feedback about Rastamouse, which continues to be a hit with our young viewers and which was consistently in the top ten CBeebies shows viewed on iPlayer throughout 2011.”
None of the complaints were upheld.
