The Indonesian Broadcasting Commission has warned a television network for airing the "Crayon Shin-chan" anime series, which is based on a Japanese manga, saying it contains content that is inappropriate for children.

In a press statement dated Monday, the government-sanctioned but independent commission known as KPI referred the warning to Jakarta-based Rajawali Citra Televisi Indonesia, or RCTI network.

"Crayon Shin-chan" was one of the movies and TV series that were singled out by the commission as being improper for children to watch on the country's television networks. The U.S. animated TV series "Tom & Jerry" also made the list because it contains violence, the commission said.
