My 10 year old son loves to watch these cartoons.

I have not bought any spotlight collections since and will continue not to buy them until they release an uncut set.

Well you know what, if it offends those people, they don't have to buy it or watch it.

Here is the statement from Warner Bros as to why the two shorts are not being included on this release:

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.

How's that for corporate PC jibberish.

So, Warner Brothers Home Video has now decided to become BIG BROTHER!!!???? I know that the words I'm about to type are now considered passé by the new studio owners but here goes. ARTISTIC INTEGRITY. Leave these cartoons alone and allow us to judge them in their Historical Perspective. We are not idiots! We don't even need Leonard Maltin to tell us it's o.k. to view these cartoons un-cut. Was Leonard un-available to tell us it's o.k. to view these as we remember them!!?? How a studio that did so well answering the requests of the fans of the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies to leave them as they originally were, could so insult those same fans now, is utterly beyond me! Send them a LOUD and CLEAR message. DO NOT BUY THIS VOLUME!

At first I gave this only a ** review, then I thought about it. We are all basing our review on the two cartoons not included in this final (?) set, but the set is not called "The Complete Collection" it is called "The Spotlight Collection".

We should really be reviewing what is included on this set! While the cartoons are not restored like the Looney Tunes & Popeye Cartoons Warner has put out, these still look good. And they are a joy to watch. But I have to take a star away for the one cartoon, HIS MOUSE FRIDAY, that has a shot re-framed to crop off a black faced character. After having to replace censored discs on the first two sets, Warner still goofs and includes a censored cartoon on this set.

But in all fairness, here is my original review of 9/12/07:

Note: I am not saying that black stereotypes are acceptable.

Here is the inside information as to why the censoring:
"The Tom & Jerry collections (and all other Warner cartoons - including the Hanna Barbera collections) are supervised by the "Family Department". The POPEYE and LOONEY TUNES dvds are supervised under another department - the classic films department - and they will be uncensored." So these are issued by the wrong division of Warner Home Video.

To see what all the censorship was about I pulled out my "Art Of Tom & Jerry" Laserdisc that Ted Turner released in the previous century . It has all of the classic Tom & Jerry Cartoons!

First let me say that both cartoons excluded from this set have Mammy Two Shoes, but then she is included in about half of the other 1940's T&J cartoons on these DVD sets. So she is not the issue.

What sorry times we live in. The idea that anyone, especially a mature collector, will take offence at something that was made in a very different culture, 60 years ago, and which was never intended to be malicious in the first place, is offensive - but not as offensive as misrepresenting that culture. We have a lot to learn from the attitudes that were prevalent in those days, not least that we shouldn't be so damned sensitive-! If we have to walk on eggshells all the time, everyone's fun is spoilt. 'Mouse Cleaning' is one of the three or four best Tom and Jerry cartoons, and one of the dozen or so best cartoons ever. Leaving it out of an alleged "collector's edition" is farcical. I could be wrong, of course, but I suspect that Warners are perfectly aware of this and what they are really thinking is that opportunists will appear in their droves with lawsuits, claiming that they or their children have been offended or traumatised to the tune of, oh, half million dollars each, thank you very much. It's not just censorship that's the problem here, it's the litigation culture - or the fear of it.

I was so excited about buying this set until I heard they omitted two cartoons and censored another so...

I'm done with Warner and it's not even funny or comical. Guess I've just about had it with their insipid dvd decisions.

They made a horrible mistake in the way they released Knots Landing, which suffered low sales because of their idiocy and thus, no more Knots. Yes, Warner says 'SCREW YOU TO FANS!'

Now they're not going to put two cartoons on the Tom and Jerry dvd because it offends some people? Well you know what, if it offends those people, they don't have to buy it or watch it.

To tell other people they can't watch it because some hyper sensitive people don't like it is ridiculous. This is a FREE COUNTRY. So, yes, that means Warner is free to do what they want but really, does this mean Warner is saying people are free so long as we all live like and don't offend the super-sensitives? No more freedom of speech, no more artistical integrity.

It's getting to the point where everything offends someone and if you keep cowtowing to those people, everyone is going to have a problem with something and no one is going to get anything. Last night on the news, I saw one town that was so sick of dog barking, dogs are now banned in the ENTIRE TOWN! Well you know what, I don't like Intellectually Challenged people but if we banned them, Warner Brothers would have no one to employ in their Home Video Department.

There are many offensive things that have happened throughout the course of history.

Hanna-Barbera vs. Chuck Jones Tom & Jerry
Not sure, but you can get all the Chuck Jones and Gene Deitch ones from amazon.co.uk You just need a multi-regional/PAL compatible DVD player... which is easy. If you use your regular DVD player for region one, just use your computer for region 2!
