Yup. Fox recently blurred the butt of a cartoon character:
The latest example of TV network self-censorship because of FCC concerns came a few weeks ago during a rerun of a "Family Guy" cartoon. Fox electronically blurred a character's posterior, even though the image was seen five years ago when the episode originally aired.
This was without having received any complaints whatsoever. Admittedly, they did it after having been fined last year for airing a TV show with spanking, etc (as described in the headline). But still. What does this tell you about the cultural climate in Dubya's America?
This is disturbed. It's just a butt, people! And it's a cartoon!
