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 »

A decent start for Tex
31 July 2006 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

Avery was getting ready to really skewer travelogues. This shows him finding his feet.

This was actually banned for the musical interlude. Showing the natives doing the cakewalk then a scat version of 'Sweet Georgia Brown' probably would rub a few the wrong way. But it was done with affection. Right down to the scatting of the Fats Waller clone.

Otherwise it's just a series of spot gags. Avery did spot gags well and this is no exception.

The egghead character makes an appearance here too. Apparently, Egghead was a caricature of a radio comedian that never made it. Avery was a fan so that's the reason for his use. He would later morph into Elmer Fudd. (Really!)

There's enough here to get a few laughs out of anyone.
