The CENSORED Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies Guide

What is missing from YOUR favorite Warner Bros. cartoon?


An Introduction...

Welcome to the Censored Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies Guide! This comprehensive site examines the cuts and edits applied to classic Warner Bros. cartoons when broadcast on television, unless noted otherwise. Gags that are deemed inappropriate for children, violent, racist, sexual, etc. are simply excised from the affected films. The following serves as a companion to these "lost" moments.

For additional insight on classic Warner Bros. animation, required reading is Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies: The Complete Illustrated Guide to the Warner Bros. Cartoons by Jerry Beck and Will Friedwald, which is available for order from Amazon.com. For further reading on censorship in animation, highly recommended is Karl F. Cohen's Forbidden Animation: Censored Cartoons and Blacklisted Animators in America which can also be ordered via Amazon.com.
