Leave Tom & Jerry Alone

LONDON (Reuters) - Turner Broadcasting is scouring more than 1,500 classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons, including old favourites Tom and Jerry, The Flintstones and Scooby-Doo, to edit out scenes that glamorise smoking...

Give me a break. These cartoons come from a different time, and for the most part, weren't created for kids. I watched plenty of Tom & Jerry as a kid and have never picked up a cigarette. Let's focus on parenting first, people.

My rant for the day. Thanks for listening.

And that's just in the UK...I'm sure we're next, if we haven't been hit already. I know the WB cartoons have.
