Iran Places Homer Simpson On Toy Black List While Working To Export Barbie

TEHRAN, Iran — An Iranian government-affiliated agency has banned dolls of the Simpsons cartoon characters, who join Barbie and others on a toy blacklist, an independent newspaper reported on Monday.

The report said that the Simpsons were banned to avoid the promotion of Western culture. But Superman and Spiderman were allowed, because they helped the “oppressed.”Farjoo said however that dolls of Spiderman and Superman were authorized for sale. “They help oppressed people and they have a positive stance,” he said.

Farfoo added that we are hoping to take Barbie off the black list and begin exporting her back into the US  as soon as possible.
