* That picture of the ''David'' statue with the boxer shorts on the main page? It was clearly done in jest, but something like that actually happened. A plaster cast of the statue was made as a gift to Queen Victoria, and since this was one of the more prudish times in history, they felt that male nudity might offend someone, so a plaster fig leaf was made to use [[http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/articles/d/davids-fig-leaf/ during the Queen's visits.]]

Censorship starts at editing out blood splatter and profanity. But it escalates pretty quickly. [[FrothyMugsOfWater Beer may become water even when it's adults drinking]]--even villainous adults. Cigarettes and cigars might be removed even though it's a bad guy smoking. [[FamilyFriendlyFirearms A six-round revolver can become a water gun or slingshot.]] Then they start warping entire characters to entire show so that a character is AmbiguouslyBi, as if a good guy being gay might encourage kids to be gay--when ironically a good guy being bi might just encourage a kid to experiment. [[NobodyCanDie Then when a situation presents itself where death should be a given, it's always avoided or explained away]]), removing the idea of consequences stemming from dangerous activities. A girl hits a boy because he got her dirty, instead of because he might be groping her. A scene of a parent hitting their child is completely removed, making it look like they are running away over nothing.

If they really ''can't'' remove a death, they might try to remove emotional depth from it, so somebody doesn't seem to grieve that much over their best friend/lover dying--so now you're encouraged to stifle your emotions. Other emotional conversations may be edited, so characters seem to be friends rather than in love. Vital discussions might be removed because they take place in a bar, leaving plotholes. And at its most extreme, there may be the removal of entire episodes, and you might never even get to see the final season of your show because it's DarkerAndEdgier.

* NoSmoking: Characters can't enjoy a cigarette (be it tobacco--or, in more extreme cases, cannabis, crack cocaine or meth), lest more impressionable viewers imitate what they see.

* The nude saints in the Art/SistineChapel ''The Last Judgement'' had their genitalia painted over with garments after Michelangelo's death, leaving the schmuck who agreed to do it to forever be known as "the breeches maker." After a restoration effort in the twentieth century, the fresco survives unbreeched.
