Postcards from Buster was a spin-off of the TV show Arthur, starring Buster Baxter, the anthropomorphic friend of Arthur. The show was produced by Cinar and Marc Brown Studios.
An episode was released on March 22nd, 2005, called "Sugartime!: Hinesburg, Vermont". It was banned in the United States (but unknown if anywhere else) for having a proud lesbian couple showcased in the episode. This decision has caused controversy among people in the LGBT community.
In the "infamous banned" episode of Postcards from Buster, Buster tries his hardest to come up with the perfect Mother's Day gift for his Mom.
The episode aired March 22nd, 2005, but was never played on any TV channel after the initial airing, nor has it been released on any home media. The only evidence of its existence back before it was discovered was a clip uploaded to YouTube regarding the episode. The episode aired March 22nd, 2005, but never again. It was rare to come by until an anonymous person at kisscartoon.me released the episode.
