Abstract:

A collection of animated films from the 1930s and 1940s which feature caricatures and stereotypes of blacks. The stupidstitious cat is a parody of the famous "Jack Benny Program" with a black crow playing the part of "Rochester" (who was black and played a stereotypical black role on the Jack Benny Program.) In Outdoor indore Felix joins the circus and travels to India. Flop goes the weasel features a very black stereotype of "Mammy" portrayed by a large hen giving birth to a baby chick. Robinson Crusoe Jr. stars Porky Pig against African natives. The talking magpies is the first screen appearance of cartoon characters Heckle and Jeckle. Swiss Cheese family Robinson features Mighty Mouse who saves a mouse family from jungle cannibals. In Ali-Baba bound Porky Pig battles extremist Muslims; one has a bomb on his head in place of a turban.
