Again, I must be missing something...
18 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Before you can get to see "Cannibal Capers" and a few other 'special' cartoons on the "Walt Disney Treasures: More Silly Symphonies" DVD set, you are forced to watch an introduction by Leonard Maltin. He talks about the times in which they were made and how politically incorrect the films are. I am not against this, but hate how once you view it, you must ALWAYS view Maltin's speech again if you come back to any of the offensive cartoons. The same thing happens in some of the other Treasures DVDS--such as the second Donald Duck set.

My assumption why this was among the few 'bad' cartoons in the set that needed a special introduction is that it uses the word dwarfs. It could also be because they are rolling a barrel of beer. All I know is that the dwarfs in question look more like Brownies or Pixies--and I don't think any attempt was being made to make fun of dwarfism or little people. Perhaps there's something else about this one that offends that I am missing. All I knew is that compared to the rest of the films on the DVD, this one is pretty dull.
