Grossly offensive
4 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Those people who go on about political correctness gone mad will highlight this film as something very mildly offensive that has been denied to the general public by self appointed censors.

Angel Puss is offensive, appalling and racist. It makes me weep that Chuck Jones was involved in making this, an Oscar winning legend in the world of animation. I shudder to think what views he had of black people during the 1940s!

The tale is of a young, lazy, dumb black boy called Sambo who plays up to the stereotype and who has been told by his boss to drown a cat. Yes a children's cartoon where you have have been forced to drown a cat. However the cat is no innocent and at one point whites himself up.

Mel Blanc (White in French)should also be singled out for his voice work that plays with the stereotypical nature of the characters.

There are good reasons why this cartoon are part of eleven that Warner Brothers have withdrawn. No normal child would want to watch this in this day and age.
