Attention Warner and Disney; release your banned animation on DVD/Blu-ray through TCM!!!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


   Song of the South, the Censored 11, Mouse Cleaning, Pop-Pie A La Mode. These are some examples of some offensive animation that Disney and Warner refuse to release on home video. Of course for good reason; many of these titles we request feature racial stereotypes and gags that are indeed offensive today. So why do we, the animation fans, want these cartoons then? For historical reasons and because we love the cartoons. It is NOT because we're racists! We animation fans are diverse and tolerant and when someone is being made fun of or ridiculed for the color of their skin, we will defend them to the very end! We know these cartoons have material n not suitable in today's time and age, but they were made in a different time. A time when we didn't know any better and a time before racial justice. Nowadays, we just want to watch and enjoy these cartoons for what they are.

   What do we, the animation fans want? For Warner Bros. and Disney to finally release the banned material on DVD and Blu-ray solely, and solely only, to us, the adult collectors. The following is a list of the banned material in question:

Disney:

-Song of the South (1946)

Warner Brothers:

Looney Tunes:
-Hittin' the Trail for Hallelujah Land (1931)
-Sunday Go to Meetin' Time (1936)

-Robinson Crusoe, Jr. (1941)
-Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs (1943)

-The Old Plantation (1935)
-Big Heel-Watha (Buck of the Month) (1944)
-Uncle Tom's Cabana (1947)
-Half-Pint Pygmy (1948)
-Mouse Cleaning (1948)
-Casanova Cat (1951)

Popeye:
-Pop-Pie a la Mode (1945)
-The Island Fling (1946)
-Popeye's Pappy (1952)

Now of course, we don't want this to be sold in stores because it will cause a wave of controversy and a negative uproar from parents. So, the best solution is to release Song of the South and a box set of the banned 46 shorts Warner owns as listed, all restored and remastered, on both Blu-ray and DVD (with extras) exclusively online through the Turner Classic Movies website and limit both sets for both formats to 10-20,000 copies and never release them again.  Most importantly, both sets should have a disclaimer both on the back covers stating "INTENDED FOR ADULT COLLECTORS ONLY AND NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN" along with a disclaimer and/or introduction before the main menu. The sets are sold online and not through stores, the older fans will know where to find them, parents won't complain since the sets won't be in stores, everybody wins, problem solved.

So we ask you Disney and Warner to please really and actually consider this proposal so we, the animation fans can finally have these rare pieces of animation history in our hands. And Warner, do this and I promise we will buy Tom and Jerry The Golden Collection Volume 2 on DVD and Blu-ray WITHOUT Mouse Cleaning and Casanova Cat, BUT only if you do this. Time has passed, everyone is aware of these gems, let's just release them on home video and end this once and for all.

Thank you.
