Banned !
31 January 2004 | by (Ile-de-France / Paris Region, France) – See all my reviews

Tex Avery is very popular in France and supposedly all his cartoons were recently issued on a 4 DVD set. When the set finally came out, all the Tex Avery specialists here ( and there are quite a few of them ) discovered to their absolute disgust and horror that two cartoons had "deliberately" been omitted from the set without any warning from the editor !! Moreover, the editors themselves refused to acknowledge the existence of these two cartoons ( talk about a sick joke ! ) This cartoon is one of the 2 concerned !. The other is called 'Uncle Tom's Cabana'. Totally against censorship and political correctness, I was determined to see Half Pint Pygmy and found it on video cassette. Having watched it a few times, I can't for the life of me think why such a cartoon should have been banned. It's not one of Avery's funniest cartoons ( that privilege goes to Magical Maestro ). it's simply about an excursion to find the smallest pigmy in the world with the usual pursuits etc common to cartoons. In fact it's the pigmy himself who has the last laugh on his pursuers as no one ever manages to catch him !!
