It seems that England no longer has a problem with terrorism. Yes, I know they just stopped a plot to blow up thousands of people and they have numerous outspoken Muslim clerics supporting violence, but how else can you explain their new assualt against the dangers of Tom & Jerry. In several episdoes Tom is seen smoking – the ultimate evil.
Boomerang, which airs the cartoons, has “proposed editing any scenes or references in the series where smoking appeared to be condoned, acceptable, glamorized or where it might encourage imitation.”
It is not know when they will be forced to remove any and all uses of knives from the series. Also not stated was when they thought children would begin knocking their teeth out by stepping on rakes, as that is a prevelant part of many Tom & Jerry shows.
