Stereotypical Chinese abound in Terrytoons' Chop Suey
tavm from Baton Rouge, La.
30 May 2007
Just saw on YouTube an early talkie Terrytoons short called Chop Suey.
It seems to be mostly a stereotypical depiction of the Chinese-here
portrayed as rats-and the way they run their laundry. Most of what
happens here doesn't really make sense though there are some amusing
gags like the way some things are flattened as well as a few Rube
Goldberg devices and I also liked one sequence of a female rat walking
down the street with something on her head while an instrumental of
"Ain't She Sweet" plays as a score. There's also some interesting shots
of the top of a building that some people walk on with a car following
them. Otherwise, worth skipping unless you're a Terrytoons completist.
