A long time ago, there was a scene in the SpongeBob episode "Just One Bite" where Squidward sets off a security alarm and causes a gas fire. The reason for this censorship is still unknown, but possible theories include 9/11 and Nickelodeon fearing that children might imitate the stunt.
The problem is, Nick let so much worse slide by. Look at the innuendos that slid past, the suicide attempts in newer episodes, the skin-tearing. Yet this is cut. It's inexcusable.
This scene deserves to be back on the air by now. If the reason was for 9/11, Nick can just air the censored version in September. If the reason was that children might try to imitate the stunt, the shot of the lit match can be cut and/or, between explosions, they could add Squidward saying to the viewers, "Please don't play with fire... it really hurts."
