Censorship In Golden Aged Cartoons and Today

It’s odd to me that we are not in more of an outrage from the violence that media outlets present to our kids, but a cartoon beating on another and having lunch afterwards is deemed inappropriate.

Here is a site that lists censored cartoons from times way past and a few from the not too distant past. The site will tell you what was removed and what it may have been replaced with. It’s eye opening to read what types of violence and racism were in cartoons that not only our grandparents and parents enjoyed as kids, but our kids and ourselves enjoyed. Some of the censored parts we have seen over and over again, not given any thought to it’s true meaning or how it may be perceived from others.

Be sure to also check out nonstick.com to see some classic oldies from Warner Brothers.
