Storyline

Daffy Duck is China Jones, a fortune-seeking Irish private eye working in the Far East. He finds a call for help in a Chinese fortune cookie and decides to investigate. Acting on a tip displayed on a solo musician's drum, Daffy/Jones goes to a pub owned by Limey Louie to look for clues. Louie is, in fact, an ex-convict who blames Jones for sending him to jail. Louie disguises himself as a grieving widow and arranges a series of mishaps for the web-footed sleuth. Porky Pig also appears in this cartoon as Charlie Chung, the plain-clothes Chinese detective. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Full of Chinese stereotypes but so what!?
15 June 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I know I'll ruffle many feathers for saying this, but this banned video shouldn't be banned for being politically incorrect or insensitive. First, I am loathe to ever pull things from the market because they might offend. Second, while the Chinese stereotypes abound, the Asians in this cartoon are not shown as being stupid, sub-human or bad--just stereotypical. For example, Porky Pig plays a Charlie Chan-style character (named "Charlie Chan") and yet he isn't stupid, evil or bad--so what harm exactly is being done by this cartoon? Plus anyone with half a brain should be able to figure out that these are only silly stereotypes and should be able to handle it.

Now if you can manage to ignore all the Chinese images, what are you left with in this cartoon? Well, the quality of the animation is pretty poor for Warner Brothers because it was made in 1959--when the studio began cost-cutting by using inferior production values. Plus, it isn't really that funny or memorable. THIS should be the reason people don't watch this--not because of heightened sensibilities.
