Not all that good and it probably will just bore or offend the viewer
I am not one for "political correctness" and don't think any film should be banned just because it offends. However, because of some offensive imagery of Blacks in this cartoon, you're not likely to find it except on the Internet. However, before you rush off to find it, I warn you--not so much because of the racially insensitive material (and it is offensive) but because the movie itself is pretty insipid and unfunny. Just a couple years earlier, Disney made a similar film that was littered with cartoon images of famous actors (MICKEY'S POLO TEAM), but it was a good bit funnier and more likable. Plus, this time it all seems a bit more forced. If you do see this cartoon, don't see it because it's anything special--see it because it's a good case of a film that has been shelved because of changing tastes and mores.
