Downright racist (yet downright funny)
7 June 2003 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

The funniest part of this short, I admit, is when Buckwheat is telling his friends what he would do if he were rich. How he would buy "Wabba'mella' an' fried chick'n fo' ebby'body in Harlem." and then showing his dream if it were to really happen, with every black in Harlem eating the said portions in a hypnotic, ritualistic frenzy! I know I should feel guilty for laughing at this, but I laugh anyways. So sue me!
