Yes, been there, done that! It happens with cartoons too. Remember Pepe la Pew? He threatens the cat that he will kill himself if she doesn't respond to his advances! We hired some old Loony Tunes for the kids but sent that one right back to the video shop!!
that makes me laugh! i too dug out some of my old books, and they're so non-pc. it's hard to censor as i read now that mr H can read a bit, so i have to hurridly flick thru before presenting it as a new book to read.
Too funny - we have an old Richard Scarry nursery rhymes book the kids love. Some of the words are so old school. Now my kids love Tom and Jerry. It provides for some interesting conversations. Happy WW!
Interesting how we softened up our stories, isn't it? What does that say about early generations or what does that say about us?
I think I'll stick w/the toned down nursery ryhmes. ;DHappy WW!
Wow. Guns and violence - it's almost like prime time television!
Beautiful illustrations. Were you read all the rhymes as a kid?!
I have this nursery rhyme book! I remember it from when I was a child. There are lots of great rhymes that need a little censoring ;-)
I do that too!
oh dear, those rhymes are full on.I'd probably do the same thing.
