This was previously shown over on MeTV's sister channel, MeTV+ when showing Ain't That Ducky.

Again, sorry for bring this thread back from the dead, but it's still worth noting, nevertheless.



The same warning must be issued mentally by anyone watching anything, anytime. 2022 movies are a product of their time as well. Time itself will tell. Honest historians will tell, too. For their record: 21st century was a time when people took their movies as seriously as some kind of "reality medicine" that would need something like a "patient leaflet" for "outdated" art. Bullshit.

That disclaimer, my online friend noted me of on Discord. But... the problem? I didn't see any problematic materials in those two shorts, from what I've recalled.

Also, some missed stuff from September to now:

"Get Rich Quick Porky" made it's MeTV debut near the end of September, albeit unrestored (sad, as that was the remaining Gabby Goat short in-need of restoration, but it is also the first: B&W LT, Porky Pig, and Bob Clampett short to air unrestored).

Also, "It's an Ill Wind" aired uncropped back last month ago on, get this, the Saturday Morning Cartoons block!

Meanwhile, "Puppet Love" was replaced with "The Mighty Navy" today. While I like both shorts, it is shameful, considering that today was meant to be the former's debut on MeTV (this isn't the first time this has happened, though; see the cases with "Henhouse Henery" and "Peck Up Your Troubles", which did later on air, so "Puppet Love" should later on air too).

"Mr and Ms. Is the Name", which is allegedly the only color and Merrie Melodie Buddy and Cookie cartoon, is also set to air this month. This one was removed from HBO Max back two years ago in 2020.

Thanks for the update, Roxen. Only time will tell for what comes next, like the Christmas special airing sometime at the start of December. It's more of a sequel to the previous Christmas special on Toon in with Me.

I'm a bit surprised they are doing a second Christmas special as I think they already ran almost all the Christmas shorts they had rights to.

"Blunder Below" aired with a disclaimer today on SMC. The photos that my friend sent me on Discord didn't contain the (should I dare say it?) Japanese stereotype, but I am willingly to believe it was uncut as there was a disclaimer today. If someone can provide further evidence, that would be gladly appreciated.

"Bugs Bunny's Christmas Carol" is making its MeTV debut next week (11/26/22). Not sure if it is going to be in SD or HD.

Also, "Puppet Love" is getting a second chance to make its debut on December 3rd, 2022.

Finally, last but not least, "I Wanna Play House" is also making a MeTV debut on 12/3/22. Be careful, LT lovers (sarcasm).

I saw the broadcast and it was edited. Kind of made the disclaimer somewhat pointless.

Yeah, no... it made the disclaimer completely pointless, for sure.

Alright, sorry for double posting, but red alert!!!

"Hop and Go" aired with the Tokyo ending gag uncut!

Not sure if it aired with a disclaimer; I'm willing to bet that it did, but color me surprised if there wasn't one.

I don't get to see Toon In more than once or twice a week but I really appreciate the show. They continue to show a wide variety of cartoons, air ones they haven't shown before, have expanded beyond just the Looney Tunes, and show black and white cartoons. The in between segments are usually kept short, usually can at least prompt a smile, don't offend as tthey balance adult and young viewers, and often include some info on the upcoming cartoons. Consider these five hours, plus three on Saturday and two on Sunday, and occasional special programming outside of that (Charlie Brown, upcoming Toony Christmas prime time) and I, for one am thankful for Me TV's commitment to animation. As we approach Thanksgiving, it appears they remain firmly committed to this programming so we must assume they are drawing at least a satisfactory audience to make it worthwhile.

So, "Snow Place Like Home" aired with a disclaimer, likely due to the Inuit stereotypes (doesn't make much sense since "Frigid Hare" and "Let's Stalk Spinach" aired without disclaimers, but that's the best I can go off with). The disclaimer itself is actually the unique part, as it is different from the other four cartoons presented (had a big "DISCLAIMER" word on it, as well as different wording in the sentences, some stuff the previous disclaimers didn't have).

Also, "Bugs Bunny's Christmas Carol" aired today. My friend on Discord stated that it was SD, though I am not too sure. The screenshots he sent me were of superb quality regardless, though, as I couldn't find a proper print of it anywhere.

"Puppet Love" made it's MeTV debut today, with a disclaimer, despite it being free of any racially-charged material/content.

Ah, well.

However, for stronger news, "I Wanna Play House" airs in HD. I was NOT expecting it be restored to HD! Photoshopped titles, eh; I'll take it...

A late reply, but when I said "somewhat pointless", I meant that they still kept the Japan flag in and Popeye imitating the Japaneese soilder as he destroys the sub.
