China Extends Ban on Foreign-Produced Cartoons

China is banning foreign-produced cartoons from airing between 5:00pm and 9:00pm on its television networks, the Associated Press reports. Under the new regulations, which extend a current ban covering the hours of 5:00pm to 8:00pm, only domestic cartoons approved by the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television will be allowed to air during the time period.

The ban, which is designed to protect the country’s domestic cartoon industry, will go into effect on May 1.
