Seems that due to "Racial" issues, certian episodes of Bugs Bunny have been yanked from the Cartoon Network. Fucking Pathetic. McUZI

Damn McUZI, did you just wake up! There are a large number of cartoons no longer considered appropriate for the sheeple to view. The ones I miss the most are the WWII Popeye's where Popeye knocks the shit out of the Axis Powers. Many a funny episode has been sacraficed in the name of the United States of the Offended Moronic Slackers. Semper Fi edited kuz i kant sepll[:P]

I love the one when he is fighting the "injuns" and is tally marking all the one's he is killing. He then erases half of a mark and says, "oops, half breed". Now that was Saturday morning television at its best. [:D]

The networks have been censoring Bugs Bunny cartoons for a long time. Back in the seventies, you could still see the "africa" ones with the caricatured black guys. You could also see "Daffy the Nazi". I got that last one on tape. Sure, they were offensive to minorities, but that was back when we were still "one white nation under god". Now that were are turning into a western version of the Balkans, such things are totally inappropriate .

Huck Finn & GWTW will be next. Sorry you banners, this is history. Some of the banned episodes center on sterotypes that are no longer prevalent. More amusing than hateful. I understand Warner is behind the ban, they are worried about decreased sales. Silliness!

Some have been edited to eliminate controversial scenes too! One in particular comes to mind. Remember when Bugs and Daffy are competing in a talent show trying to out do each other and get the audience to applaud the loudest. They were on a stage and Daffy gets all pissed and comes ut in a devil costume and a suitcase. He then goes into a little routine where he swallows "...one gallon of gasoline, some nitroglycerine, uranium 236, copious amounts of gunpowder, shake well(Daffy jumping up and down) and one match" He then explodes and is floating up in transparent guise. Well I'm not sure whan it happened but for at least the last five years every time I have seen that episode they ommited the "copious amount of gunpowder"! Like a kid would watch that and try to blow there guts apart, HA! The anti's have even got to cartoons! It makes you think. I grew up with Bugs and all of the great cartoons and never tried to do any of that stuff.....well I did actually put D rocket motors on my roller skates to see if I could go faster like Wile E. Coyote but that was the only thing. Oh, and no it didn't work.

What about the mighty mouse episode where mighty sprinkles some magic dust so he can go real fast? Something like that anyway.

I remember watching a lot of these shows. Recently I saw Yesomite Sam holding his hands up, but he was missing his two trade-mark revolvers. I bet some folks really hate Elmer Fudd, the shot-gun blasting hunter that is always after Bugs. A lot of these cartoons are now on video tape.

The same thing happened to Tom & Jerry cartoons. Ted Turner bought all the rights to Tom& Jerry and started the mass edits. The one that stands out in my memory, was the black maid yelling "Thoooommmmaaaasss !!!!" Well they edited to be a woman with a scottish accent. Sigh..... I used to love watching cartoons. Not anymore.

How about "A Nation is Born," or "Gone with the Wind"

Do you mean "Birth of a Nation"?

Ebay. I have a bootlegged copy that I bought at a War Between the States battle re-enactment. Disney sells them overseas, just not here in the U.S.S.A. Some morals huh?
