The Censored Cartoons Page

My daughter just got her accidental first taste of golden age cartoons, in the form of a DVD of 1940s-50s Mickey Mouse and Pluto cartoons mistakenly shipped to use by NetFlix.

Four years of efforts by me, mama, and the rest of society to feed our kids on a diet consisting solely of safe, educational TV just went out the window.

These Disney shorts are, of course, still pretty tame. I now have to figure out what age to introduce her to the real hard stuff, like Tex Avery.
