Smoking not cool, but……

tom.jpgThe British kids channel has voluntarily agreed to edit characters cartoon characters puffing out smoke from their episodes of Tom and Jerry, The Flintstones and Scooby-doo

Of course, it won’t simply cut each instance of smoking from the classic ‘toons, simply the ones, “where smoking appeared to be condoned, acceptable, glamorized or where it might encourage imitation

Tom and Jerry is a fun cartoon character that has been around since 1950. While I definitely agree that the media should reduce their “Smoking is Cool” images – GIVE ME A BREAK !!!

Come on guys, This is a classic cartoon. 

What are you going to edit next? Jerry whacking Tom with whatever instrument he has – or isn’t violence corrupting enough?
