This is just over the line! Turner Broadcasting, the people that brought you colorized movies from Black and Whites…now takes it upon themselves to remove smoking from all of the old Hanna-Barbera Cartoons. Now, I do understand that smoking isn’t good for you or me…but to go a step further and erase it from history? Who the *&%@ do they think they are!
You know…I think I remember a few times that Tom, Jerry, and even Fred or Barney got sloshed. Perhaps they should take that out too…Now that I think about it…Anvils and boards to the head are ok to leave in?
I can’t stand this kind of censorship when someone thinks they know better than me. I have some advice for you…Talk to your Kids, don’t shelter them by chopping up old cartoons. Yea, that will save the world.
Pfft. Idiots. Kiss my P.C. Free butt.
LONDON (Aug. 21) – Turner Broadcasting is scouring more
than 1,500 classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons, including old
favorites Tom and Jerry, The Flintstones and Scooby-Doo, to
edit out scenes that glamorize smoking.
Makes me want to smoke in protest!
