Oscar presenter Robin Williams was forced to cut a number spoofing the recent controversy about allegedly gay animated characters that included the lyrics “Pinocchio’s had his nose done! Sleeping Beauty is popping pills! The Three Little Pigs ain’t kosher! Betty Boop works Beverly Hills! / Fred Flintstone is dyslexic, Jessica Rabbit is really a man, Olive Oyl is really anorexic, and Casper is in the Ku Klux Klan!”
An ABC spokesman said the song was cut because of two lines “The Road Runner’s hooked on speed” and “Pocahontas is addicted to craps” because they glorify drug use and disparage native Americans. Williams responded by ripping a piece of white tape from his mouth before presenting the award for Best Animated Feature which went to The Incredibles.
