Does this mean you are considering a v2.0?

Either way, I’m very happy to see this project released! came back here today after more than a year since my last checkup and seeing all these updates was a great sight!

I personally would very much like to see a V2 released. If anyone wants to tackle it I’ve got all the materials.

Many of us watched those cartoons - and other similar films - repeatedly over a long, long time.

There is no ‘pc police’ involved in the removal of content of which the owners of these franchises themselves deemed offensive years later and then removed.

If anything, it is the owners of these franchises wanting to re-write history in an attempt to show they weren’t offensive, derogatory, or used racial caricatures and so on, in their past content. A bid to retcon their own history - which they obviously have issue with.

Nobody is telling you your (or our) childhood was bad - so please don’t claim otherwise. Or include and twist such a point to post inflammatory remarks, or lay blame at some sort of imaginary ‘pc police’.

I disagree with you on one front, there definitely is a pc police. Disney for instance succumbed to mob rules in 2020 and announced they would eliminate Splash Mountain and re theme it in favor of princess and the frog. To boot, they took away the zip a dee doo dah song from their parks and even removed a statue of Brer Rabbit. Everyone is afraid to release certain material or say certain things so as not to be a victim of cancel culture. It is not just limited to old cartoons but across the board.

Take for instance, the social media site GAB. They essentially refuse to moderate any content that is legal speech under US law. Unlike the Facebooks and Twitters of the world that censor viewpoints they don’t like. For this stance, credit card companies deny them service. Google and Apple deny them a spot on their app store. Obviously there is a pc police. People get fired for posts on twitter. Again, pc police. And so on and so forth.
