Cannibal Capers
23 March 2009 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

An interesting note from the audio commentary for this cartoon; as Leonard Maltin states, the cartoon is not so much of a racist joke again African natives, but perhaps a caricature of the Hollywood caricature of African natives.

Any number of movies and shorts from that time showed those from Africa as vicious savages in extreme forms. While offensive today, audiences at that time would have had a good laugh on such an obvious spoof.

All in all, remember that all of the studios at that time used these same gags and stereotypes. Disney's use of them is just more obvious since the studio is one of the few major long-term companies from this era that we can use as a reference.
