no surprise that this isn't available
26 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

"Flop Goes the Weasel" is another one of the Warner Bros. cartoons not widely available due to its racially offensive content (I saw it on YouTube). In this case, a hen - closely resembling a mammy - sees that her egg is about to hatch and runs off to get something for the chick, when a weasel steals the egg. The chick then mistakes the weasel for his mammy and wants to play hide and seek, thereby injuring the weasel in various and sundry ways.

I actually hope that Warner Bros. eventually releases this one on DVD (provided of course that they include a warning about the non-PC material). It is worth seeing as a historical and cultural reference, if absolutely nothing else.
