Default When New York censored Walt Disney

I grew up profoundly loving the Disney True-Life Adventure films of the 1950s. We used to see them projected by good old Bell and Howell 16mm projectors on "audio-visual days" in grade school -- magic time for me.
I was very surprised to find that Disney's 1954 film, "The Vanishing Prairie" was banned by the state of New York because it showed the live birth of a buffalo calf. Really unbelievable.
Here was Walt's comment:

At the time, Walt said:
“Birth scene would never have appeared on the screen if I believed it might offend an audience. It would be a shame if New York children had to believe the stork brings buffaloes too.”
The state censorship board eventually reversed its decision after the ACLU, on Walt’s behalf, lodged a complaint.

For more on these wonderful films, go here:

Times are different for sure. The things we take as mundane today were very taboo in the 40s and 50s. On tv married couples slept in separate bed. Pot was a demon drug. Women’s dresses were almost floor length. And live birth of buffalo on tv was banned!

Wifey just told me that in Victorian times, they even covered the legs of tables and piano's.
Because it was so suggestive.
Never heard that before.
