Starts out with a tribe of African cannibals imitating Native Americans. After this, they do the new Warner Bros. Looney Tunes theme "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down." Then a sloppy stuttering salesman knocks on their doors, and they bring him in and put him in a pot of boiling water. The queen of the tribe wants to see the man. She falls in love with him. They get married, but when the salesman sees he has to kiss the bride, he decides he'd be better off being dinner for a tribe of hungry cannibals. Written by Steve Siegert <>

Did You Know?


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 »

Really, when I look back on all the Warner cartoons I've seen, I QUITE ENJOY this one......and I'll take it any old day over: (*big, long sigh*) "Feed The Kitty," "Boyhood Daze," "Much Ado About Nutting," "It's Hummer-Time," "Half-Fare Hare," "China Jones," "Scent-imental Over You," "Old Glory," "Tom Thumb In Trouble," "Those Wonderful Dames," "The Coo-Coo Nut Grove," "Prest-O Change-O," "Feline Frame-Up," "Kiddin' The Kitten," "The Aristo-cat," "Wacky Blackouts," "The Big Snooze," "Rabbit Hood," "Cat Feud," "Scaredy Cat," "A Waggily Tale," "Hare-Abian Nights," "Tweet Dreams," "Tom-Tom Tomcat," "Daffy And The Dinosaur," "The Good Egg," "Fifth Column Mouse," among many others. (Watch this list for future additions.) And if you want to e-mail me and tell me I'm lower than scum for preferring it, feel free to e-mail me. I won't care, though.

A final note: I think the two white characters are about as much an insult to Caucasians as the cannibals are to it really evens up.
