Sure to offend and not especially funny
15 June 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This cartoon is on the web and can be watched on Google Video, though it is NOT in general release because it is so patently offensive. While I am one of the least politically correct-minded people you'll meet (I actually believe in Free Speech), I can easily see why Warner Brothers pulled this one, as it is so offensive and gross in its stereotype of Black Americans. The main character is a huge-lipped and ultra-stupid Black named "Sambo", so it certainly isn't surprising that with today's sensibilities that this is deemed offensive! Now if you look past the horrid stereotype, the rest of the cartoon is only mildly funny by Looney Toons standards, so I really think you aren't missing anything if you don't watch it. I just hope it is NOT pulled off Youtube since I hate to see anything completely banished plus it is an important and uncomfortable part of our history.
