But, strangely, there is no room “__″ in building “4″, the offices start at “410″ and work upwards – don’t ask me why. Sorry to disappoint you all, but there is no Room X in CERN –it simply doesn’t exist, and certainly hasn’t been preserved as “the place where the web began”.

After explosions, for example, characters with blasted faces would resemble stereotypical blacks, with large lips and bow-tied hair. Perhaps the most controversial element of the show is the character Mammy Two Shoes, a poor black maid who speaks in a stereotypical "black accent" and has a rodent problem. One of the creators of X, who was responsible for these gags, claimed that the racial gags in X did not reflect his racial opinion; they were just reflecting what was common in society and cartoons at the time and were meant to be humorous. Nevertheless, such stereotypes are considered by some to be racist today. Mammy TwoShoes' voice was redubbed by Turner in the Xd-1990s to make the character sound less stereotypical; the resulting accent sounds more Irish. One cartoon in particular, His Mouse Friday, is usually kept out of television rotation because of its depiction of cannibals.
