My friend tells me there is a episode of Seinfeld that Televions channels refuse to show in re-runs because there contraversy about some racial overtones. Has anyone heard anything like this? I feel I've scene all the episodes but I don't remember the one he's talking about. If you know, I would love to know which episode he's talking about.

The Puerto Rican Day. I think it's because of the accidental burning of the Puerto Rican flag by Kramer.

It is still shown at times but sometimes when they are running the series in order they will skip this one.

As heretical as this might sound, it doesn't bother me unduly when it is skipped. Other than the stellar appearance by H.E. Pennypacker, I can take or leave this episode.

Mr. Chiles...Depending on your reasoning, it's not heretical at all...If the reason you can pass on this episode is simply because you don't find it that funny, then, hey, that's cool. But if you're offended by an ACCIDENTAL burning of a flag, then, i'm a little more skeptical.
Having said that, i have to say that i was one of the more outspoken people that was trying to tell others to relax about the flag burning. It was portrayed as an ACCIDENTAL burning, not a deliberate one. Yet, at the same time. Seinfeld was always a "light" show, unlike (for example) All In the Family, which was expected to be political. So, in my opinion, I wish they would have stayed away from any kind of flag-burning, accidental or other-wise. It just wasn't that kind of show. Even though I was the first one to tell a few Puerto-Ricans to relax, I just wish the writers didn't even open that door....that's just my view, I don't expect or need anyone to agree with me.

H.E Pennypacker renowned industrialist, philanthropist, and bicyclist

i don't know why people hate this episode so much i think the interaction between "black saab" and "maroon gulf" is hilarious

Maddam, prepare yourself for an all out bidding war. But this time, advantage Varnson!

I love that episode.
especially the scene when "Vandalay", "Varson" and "Pennypacker" are all in the apartment for sale.

besides, i find the flag burning
also funny, because it was an incident that took place in the worst possible moment

I like this episode:

"...we have a pregnant woman down here."
"don't judge me."

"um, I'm sure there's a waterfall grotto."

"Mucho Traffico!!!"

I think vandelay, pennypacker, and varnson were pretty funny, but other than that this one has to be one of my least favorite episodes.

KRAMER: Hola, Jerry! I'm into this Puerto Rican day! The sights! The sounds! The hot, spicy flavor of it all! It's caliente, Jerry!

Yeah, I happen to think that The Puertorican Day was a great episode. There were great interactions between the four of them, George trying to fit in his "line" (which Jerry admits is exactly what he does for a living), Elaine and her "poseidan adventure" reference, Black Saab vs. Maroon Golf ("Jackass!"), and of course, one of my all time favorite scenes: when Jerry, George, and Kramer are all in that condo as their pseudo identities. Hands down, classic Seinfeld.

Poor George getting all worked up at the risk of being blinded by the laser and Jerry egging on his paranoia. I love it.

Jerry: Hold it, George. Don't move. It's right between your eyes.

George: Oh, my god.

George, "I can't be blind, Jerry The blind are courageous."

Mr. Pennypacker, if you're here, and Mr. Vandelay is also here, then who's watching the factory?
The factory?
The Saab factory?
Jerry, that's in Sweden.
Absolutely classic scene! Laughing
