Amazon.com says some Tom and Jerry shows are racist. An Amazon warning says that the racism from 70 years ago was wrong. It says this racism is still wrong today. People say the black maid in the cartoon is racist. In the 1960s, some cartoons were changed because of racism.

Two cartoonists made Tom and Jerry in 1940. They made 114 Tom and Jerry cartoons from 1940 to 1957. The cartoons won seven Oscars. They are very popular. Children watch them on TV every day. A man said Tom and Jerry cartoons are very good quality. Many people think Amazon's warning is "madness".

Back to the Tom and Jerry lesson.
