    COAL BLACK AND DE SEBBEN DWARFS (1943) - Google Video

    I recently stumbled over this cartoon, and I thought it was at least odd. It was banned, but is in public domain now, I think. The racism aside, I think it is one of those wierd / disturbing cartoons, that has visuals and music that sort of get stuck in your head .

    Wow. It's strange to see blackface stuff back when it was more accepted. Chilling, but also interesting to wonder what the cultural norms were like back then. Like I pick up on the overt racism, but I also see that it sort of glorifies the jazz art form. Also I wonder how many people were offended when it came out.
