Default Where's the Simpsons and Family Guy Articles?

There were articles on these shows on IMFDB.org, and I think American Dad and King of the Hill had a article too.
What happened to these articles?
They are TV shows, and there are plenty of animated shows that have articles, why did they delete these articles?
A bad article is better than no article at all.

No, actually most of us here (including me) believe the exact opposite, that no article is better than a bad one.

They were deleted because the guns in them were poorly animated compared to animes like Gunslinger Girl and Gunsmith Cats.

I agree with the sentiment. You can't include anything that walks, crawls or sneezes that portrays 'some sort' of firearm. If it's like the animes where the guns are accurate and intended to actually be what they are, then that's different from silliness like that.

If you got King of the Hill, I've seen pretty accurate drawings of guns on that show.

Not always though, their shotgun drawings can be less than accurate, and I've seen them depict handguns sometimes as just a square handle when they are in holsters.

well it's been a while since i've seen King of the Hill anyway. But we do agree that Simpsons and Family guy should NOT go up on the site, neither does South Park.

By poorly animated, it is meant that they rarely if ever were meant to represent something real.

All of the weapons in Goldeneye, and a fair number of weapons in Perfect Dark were meant to look like real world firearms.

If the pistol is a "unknown revolver" we don't need a page. If it's an attempt at a Ruger Blackhawk, then we should have a page.
