Tråd: Tex Avery et al.: The Censored Eleven

Som I måske ved, har jeg efterlyst MGM's LD Tex Avery Box, men Peter Becher skal have 2000 for den og KUN ved møde i Svendborg, så nu har jeg opgivet og foræret min LD afspiller til min fætter. Jeg kommer aldrig til at se de censurerede Tex Avery film, men der var også andre animatorer, der blev censureret:

fra wikipedia:

The Censored Eleven is a group of Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons that were withheld from syndication by United Artists (UA) in 1968. UA owned the distribution rights to the Associated Artists Productions library at that time, and decided to pull these eleven cartoons from broadcast because the depictions of black people in the cartoons were deemed too offensive for contemporary audiences. The ban has been upheld by UA and the successive owners of the pre-August 1948 Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies[1] catalog to this day, and these shorts have not been officially broadcast on television since 1968, and have only been exhibited once by Warner Bros., since then, theatrically in one theater in spring 2010 (see below for more details). They have turned up, however, on low-cost VHS and DVD collections over the last thirty years.

The cartoons in the Censored Eleven are:
