No one uses foul language, but there are several instances of vulgar humor. A humanized bathtub dances around the room, throwing sheets of toilet paper into the air like flower petals. An equally human-like car exits an outhouse with his trunk door open, revealing a bare behind. A cow haughtily tosses up her rump, and her enormous udder flops up and hits her on her back.
The boy and girl leads are racial caricatures, resembling the blackface performers of minstrel shows. The boy cries "Mammy!" at one point, which is a reference to Al Jolson, a white performer who sang "Mammy" in blackface. Even with their Negro dialect, the boy and girl are so crudely and simply drawn that few children will recognize them as stereotypes of black people--or as people at all. Unlike many other period cartoons with black characters, this one still appears on children's television shows.
