I'm not making this up; this is a true story!
For years, the animation series “The Adventures of Pat and Mat,” has been airing regularly on IRIB’s children’s program. Last week an episode of the 1970's-1980's Czech series was aired on Iranian television which showed Pat and Mat harvesting grapes, making wine, drinking it to each other’s health, and falling into a drunken stupor!
Subsequently, Kayhan Newspaper has had a field day admonishing IRIB on the faux pas, demanding apologies and resignations of top IRIB brass. As a result, three hapless employees of IRIB have been fired, with possibly more heads to roll. Here’s the link to that story. And here’s the by-now-infamous episode, Vinari (wine making). The clip has been downloaded and is now making the rounds among Iranians inside Iran who find this whole thing amusing and funny beyond words!
