Or a disclaimer track to start every Wagner CD stating his political affiliation.

I'm totally good with that!

I think most people understand this. Again they're stroking their own ego by treating the rest of us like children. Following their logic we should have warnings in front of Superman, "Don't attempt to jump off your roof. You cannot fly." Or warnings in front of John Wick, " Don't fire guns at people, you could kill someone." Its not necessary. Next will have disclaimers in front of every classic novel. Or a disclaimer track to start every Wagner CD stating his political affiliation.

Do not spill boiling hot coffee between your legs

Does anyone remember the pre-episode straight-to-camera stuff with West and Ward in the days of Batman '66 where they actually said "we cannot fly" (so please don't jump out of windows etc.)? Absolutely sure they happened, though my memory here is actually from the time.

I don't recall anything like that. I watched the series a lot in the early 70's.
I DO remember a story where a mom tried to sue the network that broadcast The Adventures of Superman because her kid thought he could fly and jumped off the roof of his house.

As others have noted, it’s in part simply a way for companies to take responsibility for and acknowledge offensive content in their earlier works while keeping their films intact. Especially with respect to content purposed toward young children, which seems to be the case with all the examples mentioned in this article, it’s good to acknowledge these things and a better alternative in most instances than outright censorship (censorship is a dangerous road to start down, though I’ll say I am very grateful for the edits made to Fantasia). True, an adult should be able to have the same conversation with a child, but again this is probably more about the companies themselves acknowledging the content.

I'm not that much against warnings, much better than outright bans, but they need to start simply saying these things were made in less enlightened times.

Won't there come a time where we will know this without being told every five fucking minutes?

Honestly instead of a hundred different messages arbitrarily put on hundreds of different films and television shows I say just make one short statement and put it in front of everything like the old FBI warnings in front of the VHS videos. It's annoying but if we have to endure this at least do that.

This isn't new. They've been doing this stuff for years and years. I have an old original DVD release of Pinocchio that starts the movie with an anti-smoking PSA (since there is smoking on Pleasure Island). Tons of releases of old cartoons (Looney Tunes, etc.) have done the same thing re: old racism.

I'm all for it. It teaches kids the historical context that the things were made in without shelving things (Song of the South) or hacking things apart (Fantasia).

Or a symbol like the "sad onion" sign on the box. A snowflake with a line through it.

I don't believe it's even buried in the previews. I think it autoplays when you hit Play Movie.

(again, I think it's fine)

Found it on YouTube, I believe. https://youtu.be/qUDktmuuPX8
