Prof. Hasan Bolkhari, a cultural advisor to the Iranian Education Ministry, claimed during a televised seminar that "Tom and Jerry" was created by the Jewish Walt Disney company to irradicate the association between mice and Jews created in the minds of Europeans by Hitler.
What I find amusing is how he calls it the Jewish Walt Disney Company. Firstly, Tom & Jerry was an MGM creation and secondly, Walt Disney was no Jewish sympathizer apparently and possibly quite the opposite. If this is how people are educated in Iran, I can see why they have so many problems.
I just hate it when people try to ruin my childhood memories especially cartoons like Tom & Jerry.
