【看英文中國郵報學英文】印尼媒體The Jakarta Post報導,印尼國家廣播委員會於九月五日寄出警告信給電視公司GTV,原因竟然是播放了電影版《海綿寶寶歷險記》。

The Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPI) sent a warning letter to television station GTV on Sept. 5 for broadcasting The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie.

根據國家廣播委員會的網站,信中提到播放這部電影違反了「廣播行為守則」以及「電視節目標準」。

Posted on the KPI’s website, the letter said the airing of the movie was considered in violation of the broadcasting code of conduct (P3) and program standards (SPS).

海綿寶寶電影版於八月六日早上十一點多在GTV台的「Big Movie Family」節目播出,被指內含暴力行為,像是用板子打臉、保齡球掉下來砸頭、往臉上丟鐵槌甚至用球拍把一盆仙人掌丟躑出去。

The movie, aired on Aug. 6 at 11:14 a.m. on GTV’s “Big Movie Family” program, was said to have contained violent acts, such as hitting a face with a board, dropping a bowling ball on the head, throwing a hammer at a face and throwing a pot of cactus with the help of a racket.   

另外,這部電影於八月二十二日播出內容也被指含有暴力行為,像是用蛋糕砸臉或是以木頭打人。

The movie, which aired again on Aug. 22 at 3:02 p.m. on GTV, reportedly contained the violent acts of throwing a cake at a face and hitting with the use of wood.

國家廣播委員會認為這部電影可能違反了十四號法條行為準則,此準則提到節目播出每個層面都必須對於孩童有正面的影響。

The KPI deemed the movie as potentially violating Article 14 of the KPI’s code of conduct, which states that a broadcasting unit must adhere to the interests of children in every aspect of broadcasting production.

廣受歡迎的美國電視動畫《海綿寶寶歷險記》,是關於主角海綿寶寶與他的朋友在虛構的比奇堡海底世界的冒險。

A wildly popular American animated television series, SpongeBob SquarePants chronicles the adventures of the title character and his friends in the fictional underwater city of Bikini Bottom.

海綿寶寶卡通自1999年開始播出,2004年「海綿寶寶歷險記」被改編成同名電影,2015年則發表了第二部系列電影《海綿寶寶:海陸大出擊》。第三部電影將在2020年推出。

First airing in 1999, the series was made into a feature film, The SpongeBob Squarepants Movie in 2004. The second movie, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, came out in 2015, while the third is slated for a 2020 release.

包含GTV在內的14間電視和廣播公司都在這次收到了來自印尼國家廣播委員會的警告信。

The warning letter to GTV from the KPI was among others sent regarding 14 programs.

委員會的警告信指稱違規內容包括暴力、恐怖、超自然、色情對話或手勢、以及涉及隱私的爭議或騷擾。

The violations range from acts of violence, horror and supernatural scenes, sexual dialogue and gestures, private conflicts and harassment.

委員會去年12月也寄給了11間電視廣播公司警告信,因為他們播放的蝦皮電子商務平台廣告太猥褻。

The KPI has sent out similar warning letters, such as in December last year when 11 stations were warned for broadcasting a Shopee commercial deemed too salacious.

今年二月,委員會的西爪哇分會限制十七首歌曲在廣播及電視的播放時間,原因是歌曲帶有性暗示。

In February, the West Java branch of the KPI limited airtime for 17 songs and radio and television in West Java for sexual content.

 今年八月,委員會制定法規以規範數位媒體,包含YouTube與Netflix。法規目的是要確保數位內容是值得觀看的,推廣有教育意義的價值觀念並讓網友能夠遠離低俗的資訊。

In August, it planned to formulate rules expected to serve as a legal umbrella for monitoring content on digital media outlets, such as YouTube and Netflix. It aims to ensure digital content is worth watching, promotes educational values and keeps netizens away from low-quality content.
