Tom and Jerry - Two shorts missing - Statement from Warner Bros


Read Warner's statement

We've just received this statement from Warner Bros regarding two shorts which will be missing once the third volume is released tomorrow (Sept. 11th):
    Two shorts, "Mouse Cleaning" and "Casanova Cat," will not be included in the third and final "Tom and Jerry Spotlight Collection" of theatrical animated shorts from the Hanna-Barbera era at MGM. Although this collection is intended for mature audiences and collectors (not for children), Warner Home Video made the decision to omit these two shorts because, regardless of their historical context and artistic value, the offensiveness of certain scenes containing inappropriate racial stereotypes would diminish the enjoyment of the Collection's 35 other classic cartoons for a large segment of the audience.
