Trivia

One of the "Censored 11" banned from T.V. syndication by United Artists in 1968 (then the owners of the Looney Tunes film library) for alleged racism. Ted Turner continued the ban when he was hired and stated that these films will not be re-issued and will not be put on Home Video. These cartoons will probably never air on television again, and only non-Warner Bros. licensed public domain video tapes will probably ever have these cartoons on them. See more »

While Uncle Tom's Bungalow provides some moments, it's too politically incorrect for today
12 June 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This cartoon short, Uncle Tom's Bungalow, is the fourth (chronologically) of the "Censored 11" Warner Bros. films that doesn't show on commercial TV anymore. Directed by Tex Avery, this cartoon gets some points for the beginning frames bouncing up and down to the music score, some nice visual touches with an ice machine making various ice floes, the title character appearing with a limousine, and same character telling Simon Legree: "My body may belong to you, but my soul belongs to Warner Bros.!" Otherwise, there's not much funny here and there's a bit more racist stuff then there were in the earlier ones I reviewed (though I was highly amused when the two little girls, Topsy and Eva, switched colors when showing fright to Legree). Worth a look for fans of animation especially of Tex Avery. Everyone else should just avoid.
