2. Sunday Go to Meetin' Time 1936, 1944 (reissue) Friz Freleng Merrie Melodies
3. Clean Pastures 1937 Friz Freleng Merrie Melodies

7. All This and Rabbit Stew 1941 Tex Avery Merrie Melodies
8. Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs 1943 Robert Clampett Merrie Melodies

Was the original decision, to ban and censor these cartoons, justified?

Plus: maybe this question is a bit pertinent to the thread.

I don't think they are banned anymore, but who is going to be the idiot who suggest to release this stuff out of dvd? Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Barack Obama himself will eat your companies head off. It's better to pretend it never happened. Although I have seen some and it was hilarious.

It is perfectly reasonable that they withdraw certain cartoons (that, notably, would otherwise be primarily shown to young children on a network marketed to children in the daytime hours) from syndication if they so choose. Seems a good business decision. No reason not to sell them on DVD or whatever.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

and I think they are on DVD, at least, I recently saw a Looney Tunes DVD containing the disclaimer "This was written at a different time, we do not endorse racism but we won't hide from the past, blah blah blah, enjoy."

that's a paraphrase mind you, and recently is about a year ago.

While these cartoons do make for some interesting history, I wonder how Warner Bros. would market these cartoons. It would not be the smartest idea to release a commercial that advertises banned, racist cartoons are now being released to the public.
Say it from the heart.

There are a bunch of cartoons made during WWII that are also now banned, and i think they are even a bit more significant in finding a flavor of the time. We lose most of our understanding of history because we shun the context by our own moral judgment. I quite rather have the context understood so i can understand the facts better.
