Dial J for Jerry (1968) - not a real film

Hello. This supposed Tom and Jerry short, _Dial J For Jerry (1968)_ https://www.imdb.com/title/tt15789192/reference , is completely made up. It claims to be made by DePatie-Freleng Enterprises, who was making cartoons for United Artists (separate from MGM at the time). All of the Tom and Jerry cartoons are publicly available, and this supposed cartoon is not among them. There is no record in the copyright catalogs, either. The film is completely bogus, and this title needs to be deleted from the database.

Everything on the bogus imdb page seems to be copied from this wiki page: https://tomandjerryfan.fandom.com/wiki/Dial_%22J%22_for_Jerry

But that wiki declares both with their name and with the description on their home page that they are a fan fiction wiki.

That's from their homepage: now you can make your own characters, episodes, DVDs, merchandise, games and more! Just type in the name of your idea in the box and get working on your article!

Why is IMDb accepting such a URL as evidence?

Contributor of this probably added more imaginary titles from these fanfic wikis.

Another one, likely from the same contributor: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt16254522/
