\"The Censored 11\" are eleven cartoons that are considered \"racist\" or \"too politically incorrect\" by today\'s standards. They consist of Hittin\' the Trail to Hallelujah Land (1931), Sunday Go to Meetin\' Time (1936), Clean Pastures (1937), Uncle Tom\'s Bungalow (1937), Jungle Jitters (1938), The Isle Of Pingo Pongo (1938), All This and Rabbit Stew (1941), Coal Black and De Sebben Dwarfs (1943), Tin Pan Alley Cats (1943), Angel Puss (1944) and Goldilocks and the Jivin\' Bears (1944). Warner Brothers has refused to allow any of them to be transmitted on television or released VHS, LaserDisc or DVD. Cartoons and movies are a window into what society\'s mores were at the time of their creation. Trying to erase the record of society\'s racial insensitivity as if it never happened does a disservice to those who fought to change societies mores. These animated shorts need to released for historical and educational purposes. Sign the petition and help free the

Jacopo Muneratti, Italy7 years ago Comments: As you correctly say on "Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 4" DVD, "editing out the racist depictions (and denying that the racism of the era ever happened) is worse than actually showing them." Please consider release this. "Clean Pastures", "Tin Pan Alley Cats", "Coal Black" and expecially "The Isle Of Pingo Pongo" are all gems. And "Pingo Pongo" is not very much offensive either! Thank you for reading!
ed, United States7 years ago Comments: thought this was a free country if they wanted to they could put a pg rating then on the package and put what the cartoon is about then let the parents decide... hello the right to free speech I would really love to see these cartoons back the way they should be and not censored
Kenny Biggs, United States7 years ago Comments: If people don't like them, then don't watch them. It is time they should be released.
