Censorship: Robocop TV Edit

Aaah, the lost art of TV edits. Back in the 1980s, when it wasn't acceptable to say 'schmuck' on television, a dedicated troop of well-meaning and creative individuals were hired to sanitise the most ardent blockbuster filth, such as Robocop (1987). I'm sure they had a great deal of fun while doing it too. The substitutions in the clip above range from the downright impressive ('bloodsucker') to the ludicrous ('airhead').
