Stay Tooned! is a British television programme which aired on BBC from March 1990 to 1997. The programme is presented by Tony Robinson, in which he discusses in detail and explains in depth cartoon characters, and the people and studios behind the cartoons, as well as looks over the history of cartoons.

Unlike Rolf Harris Cartoon Time, in which he performed as filler between the cartoons, Tony Robinson tried to provide greater detail about the particular topic on which he would focus each week. This meant that the range of depth of the series went beyond run of the mill classics, and on occasion featured more obscure cartoons including Betty Boop, Animal Farm, and those made by independent producers.

Censored toons

For one of the episodes, they looked at censored cartoons from over the years and included broadcast of Tin Pan Alley Cats and Angel Puss.
