Further adding in, defying all odds, Daffy's Southern Exposure has aired restored, photoshopped titles and all.

Yeah, and it still has the wrong opening theme music (the 1936-37 "Porky Signature" theme) and the wrong "Porky in a Drum" closing animation (the 1937-39 version), just like the 1990s computer colorized version.

F.Y.I, the Popeye shorts aired unrestored on Saturday Morning Cartoons, complete with A.A.P. titles. And I sworn I've seen some of these shorts with the original titles.

I'll just accept it though. At least it's something new.

You might be remembering the versions used for Cartoon Network's Popeye Show which were just the same prints but with the spinning star opening slapped on. They also played those versions on Boomerang for years.

Huh. Go figure. I kinda wish that was the case for the MeTV airings, but eh. I'll take what I can get.


Also, Peck up your Troubles aired an unrestored copy of putrid quality. The colors are washed out. They did leave the Indian chief and suicide gags uncensored though.

A Day at the Zoo, although unrestored, fared better in the colors department with the Turner dub copy.

Snow Excuse suffers the same fate as A Day at the Zoo, btw.

Shameful. Just shameful.

Also, I don't recall a Native American scene in "Peck Up You Troubles".

It was where Sylvester was getting electrocuted on some wires.I don't know the first one, but I do know the two stills after depicts an Indian chief and a hot chick before falling off the electric wires.

Checked the scene out for myself; doesn't seem to resemble a Native American chief to me, but I could be wrong as he was holding a tomahawk...

On a similar note, since the suicide gags from this, "Rabbit Romeo", and "Martian Through Georgia" were left uncut, these edits done on those jokes from the other cartoons were likely done for ad compression and not content.

It would make more sense then. Similar to the smoking scene in Señor Droopy. I actually had a theory that's similar to yours regarding the suicide gag being edited for time in An Itch in Time. It's a neat theory you brought up.

Plus, "Cross Country Detours", "Horton Hatches the Egg", and "The Hick Chick".

A little off topic but how are the titles photoshopped? I know how Aviation Vacation and Rabbits Kin are but the others

"The Timid Toreador" and some of the 30s shorts where the "WARNER BROS."/"VITAPHONE" and "PRESENTS" taglines, alongside the production code and copyright info disappear first before the WB shield. Others range from easily noticeable at worst to ignorable at best.

With that out of the way, I would like to report on a few missed things from last month and work my way up to the present.

Back in April last month, my friend on Discord reported to me that both "Flirty Birdy" and "Hurdy-Gurdy Hare" were left uncut (an Indian chef in the former and the newspaper scene, which was previously blurred, in the latter).

Moving on, I am super happy that the awful rumors spread about "Daffy's Southern Exposure" (mostly on the Looney Tunes Wiki, where I sometimes go to, i.e. it "being on HBO Max in Batch 4 before being suddenly removed" and WB "was still working on a restoration of it and didn't send said restoration in, in the MeTV package") were FINALLY slammed down at the end of last month, because they really heated me up. "Pappy's Puppy"... I have nothing to say, because I 100% expected it to air unrestored since Day 1.

Anyways, with that out of the way, "Good Noose" ran fully uncut on the "Toon in with Me" block, like how it previously did back in September of last year on the "Saturday Morning Cartoons" block.

Meanwhile, "The Car of Tomorrow" airs with both the Native American and Chinese stereotypes cut on the "Toon in with Me" and "Saturday Morning Cartoons" blocks this week.

The Eskimo, Chinese, and African American stereotypes in "Let's Stalk Spinach", "Bad Luck Blackie", and "Three Little Pups" ran fully uncut.

On a spectacular note, "Red Hot Riding Hood" ran FULLY uncut, with the lewd references and the suicide ending gag. Therefore, it is likely a final nail in the coffin and smoking gun to say that the suicide jokes in the edited cartoons were likely done for time restraints.

"Señorella and the Glass Huarache" made its MeTV debut today.

Finally, last but not least, "Penny Antics" ran with the "Wotta Knight" scenes cut, thanks to the black stereotype present in them.

"Three Little Pups"

Of course the cartoon is uncut.
Not every gag that shows a blackened face
after an explosion is a "blackface" gag.

The Car of Tomorrow aired with the Indian scene uncut yesterday but the Chinese scene was edited out. Though you could see it for about 1 second. Though they used a fade transition. Very bad edit. On the other hand Horton Hatches the Egg aired with the Peter Lorre fish commiting suicide uncut. This means that all suicide edits were done for time.

I know that; I just added that in because the Southern Wolf's lips in the aftermath look debatable for some viewers.

Ah, I see. Thanks for the correction. Speaking of which, I was just about to ask if "Horton Hatches the Egg" aired uncut, and it seems like I've got my answer! Nail in the coffin indeed.

I forgot to mention that "Plane Dippy" made its MeTV debut as well last month ago after my birthday (23 April was when it debuted, 22 of which being my birthday).

The Henpecked Duck (airing tomorrow) will likely be restored from the 90's colorized print, and suffer the same fate as Daffy's Southern Exposure.
