Spoof of 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)' with an all-black cartoon cast. Many WWII references, including rationing (the evil Queen is a hoarder of sugar and rubber tires) and Jeep vehicles (the Sebben Dwarfs come to the rescue in three of them). Also spoofs the extreme close-up of Kane's lips uttering "Rosebud" in 'Citizen Kane (1941)'. Written by

One of the 11 shorts banned from TV syndication by United Artists in 1968 (then the owners of the pre-1947 color Looney Tunes shorts) for alleged racism. Ted Turner continued the ban when he acquired these cartoons and stated that these films will not be re-issued and will not be put on home video. Warner Bros., however, reacquired these shorts in 1996 when Time Warner purchased Turner Entertainment, which returned them to their original aegis for the first time since 1957. These cartoons will probably never air on television again, and only non-Warner Bros.-licensed public-domain video tapes will probably ever have these shorts on them. See more »

It's been a dream of mine for years to see Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs, and I finally achieved that dream. A friend of mine somehow got a copy, and he burned one for me, and at the age of 18 my life is complete. No, I don't think little kids should see it, but I have to say, it lives up to every word of it's reputation. The voice acting and music are great. But what gets me the most is the sheer energy of the thing. It's just a rush for seven and a half minutes. The introductions of each new character are really great (especially Prince Chawmin's. Just exhilarating), and the dance number is spectacular as well. I'm still on a total high. Any fan of animation should see it. It's a great one.
