Each volume contains 11 cartoons that were banned or censored at some point in the US. Looking back at some of them with 21st century eyes, it’s hard to tell what was offensive about them. Some of them were too “spicy” for the era, such as Betty Boop’s garter belt. Others have racial stereotypes, wartime propaganda, cruelty to animals, or whatever else the censors didn’t like at the time (or now). They are offered in this section, instead of Animation, because they are only being offered to collectors, as well as for those that either want to see how things were viewed back then, or want to use them as an example of how things used to be. I an not offering them to promote any specific political, sexual, or racial statement. Each volume is only available on DVD.

This is the movie that the word svengali came from. The story is of course ridiculous, since hypnosis can’t make a person do something that s/he is opposed to.

Jack Nicholson and Boris Karloff star in this ghost story set in France. Jack is an officer in Napoleon’s army, trying to prove that Karloff is housing a ghost in his castle.

The sets were literally being torn down as the movie was being made. 1963. Color. Available on VCD.
