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 »

perfectly offensive
18 September 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of the many Warner Bros. cartoons out of circulation due to extremely racist content, Tex Avery's "Uncle Tom's Bunglow" pushes every stereotype of African-Americans common to the era. Truth be told, this one isn't particularly funny, though I will admit that the ice scene made me laugh.

Still, if WB decides to bring this short - and the rest of the Censored 11 - to DVD, they'll have to create a special section for them and specifically identify that they contain some of the most atrocious images of non-white people imaginable (even if the cartoons portray the characters positively, as is the case with "Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs").

All in all, this one is worth seeing as a historical reference, but I don't recommend it in any other respect.
