Just to add my thoughts on the subject, history, this has been chatted about across several sites before and hasn't had much of an effect! But anyway, make a release with the B/W cartoons and with the historical background and inclusion of "Hand Drawn" (Color) and "Computerized" (Colorized) on a disc set. Another release I'd like to see is a collection with "Made For TV Title Cards" as a bonus.

I don't see that happenin', the PC crowd has those shut down! That's why I stress the older formats that have them for the most part (Uncensored/Edited).

If you search long enough, you will find them on the internet.

The PC crowd? What?

Basically, it would be near impossible to get that set released officially because of controversies, not in the least helped by the very fact that the Censored Eleven has that title to begin with. Why else has the second Tom and Jerry Golden Collection been delayed?

I guess, but Disney Treasures released many racist cartoons with no problems, so why can't WB do the same thing? I mean, they'd probably have an intro before each cartoon begins anyway, pointing out why it's so bad.

One pattern I notice among cartoons that are unable to be released is that they often have a past stigma associated with them. The Censored Eleven label dates back to 1968; Disney has always refused to release Song of the South on home video in North America; Bugs Bunny Nips the Nips was pulled from its laserdisc release upon protests; Mouse Cleaning and Casanova Cat weren't released on the Spotlight Collections, and evidently this gave the censors an excuse to continue withholding them.

Then why are these allowed to be shown on DVD?


Leonard Maltin is displeased.
