Internet giant, Amazon, has put a warning on some of the 'Tom and Jerry' cartoons it offers to its customers. Visitors who want to buy or download the series 'Tom and Jerry: The Complete Second Volume' get a warning that the cartoons contain scenes that are racist. The warning says: "Tom and Jerry shorts may show some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society." It added that the scenes were wrong when the cartoons were made 70 years ago, and are still wrong today. People say the character of the black maid in the cartoon series is racist. Some of the cartoons were edited in the 1960s because of worries about racism.

互联网巨头,亚马逊,将一些提供给客户的“汤姆和杰瑞”漫画,贴上了警告标签。网络客户想要购买或下载汤姆和杰瑞系列: 完整的第二卷时,会发出一个警告,称漫画包含种族歧视的场景。警告说,汤姆和杰瑞的短片可能显示一些民族和种族偏见,这曾经在美国社会司空见惯。它补充说,当卡通场景在70年前创作出来的时候,就是错的,现在还是错的。人们说黑人女仆的形象,在这一卡通系列中就是种族主义者。在20世纪60年代,因为担心种族歧视,有些漫画已经被重新编辑。

Tom and Jerry were created in 1940 by cartoonists William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. The show is about the lives of Tom Cat and Jerry Mouse, who live in the same house and are big rivals. Hanna and Barbera produced 114 Tom and Jerry cartoons from 1940 to 1957. The cartoons won the Oscar for the best Animated Short Film seven times. The shows have become one of the most popular cartoons in animation history. They are put on children's TV every day in many countries. Animation expert Steve Abrahart said the quality of animation in the early Tom and Jerry cartoons was "superb". Many people posted on Twitter to say it was "madness" for Amazon to put a warning on the cartoons.

漫画家威廉汉娜与约瑟夫巴贝拉在1940年创作出汤姆和杰瑞。这个漫画是关于汤姆猫和杰瑞老鼠的生活,他们住在同一个房子,是绝对的竞争对手。汉娜和巴贝拉从1940年到1957年创作了114部汤姆和杰瑞动画片。动画片赢得了奥斯卡最佳动画短片七次。这一动画片已成为动画历史上最受欢迎的卡通片之一。这些动画片每天都在许多国家的儿童电视节目上演。动画专家史蒂夫说早期汤姆和杰瑞卡通的动画质量的是“极好的”。许多人在微博上称,亚马逊给予这些漫画警告的行为,太愚蠢了。
