After years of animation fans begging, the Censored Eleven cartoons will be available through Warner Archive in 2011. These Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons have been kept off TV since the late ’60s because of their racially oriented jokes.
Michael Lachman of Toonzone reported having a conversation with a representative of Warner Archive at the New York Comic Con. The rep declared the Censored Eleven shall be a Manufacture on Demand title in 2011. They will be uncensored and complete. Warner Archive has yet to officially announce this title so circumstances might still change.
