another racist one
10 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Yes, it's another long-lost Looney Tunes cartoon chock full of racial stereotypes. This one portrays an African-American boy sent to drown a cat, but the feline gets away, encourages the boy to toss the bag into the harbor, and then pretends to be its own ghost. Most people will probably agree that we should only watch these cartoons to see what kinds of images pervaded popular media during certain eras. "Angel Puss" would be a prime example.

Most of the humor comes when the boy keeps getting scared by the cat pretending to be an apparition. But mostly, I find it hard to laugh at black-face images.
