Censorship

Total Drama Island is a Canadian TV show. When it was brought over to the United States, some crude language and nudity was censored in order to be more family friendly and accessible for younger children. However, since Revenge of the Island, Cartoon Network toned down censorship. Netflix uses most of the Cartoon Network US edits.
