As interesting as a sales pitch about something you could care less about...and it seems to go on forever!

As a history teacher and lover of films, I occasionally like watching cartoons that have been banned, as they tell us a lot about our society and how far we have come over the years. What was perfectly acceptable decades ago is now, in some cases, seen as gross and inappropriate. Occasionally, these cartoons which have been removed from screening aren't particularly offensive but often, as in the case of this cartoon, they are so god-awful it's hard to imagine that people would have laughed at and enjoyed these films! Thirteen of these cartoons have been packaged together on a DVD entitled "Cartoon Crazys: Banned and Censored" and while the print quality of many of the cartoons is less than stellar, it's a great chance to see how sensibilities have changed.

When I saw this cartoon, I thought that it probably was never intended to be shown to the general public but was perhaps made by Stokely Foods to be shown to the stockholders. That's because the public never would have stood still for such a blatant infomercial AND because the film had a lot of inappropriate sexual content for a cartoon. Additionally, due to the ravages of time, the print was terrible and looked like it had been dyed orange--with some of the orange color being very, very intense and garish.

Overall, this was a nightmare of dullness. Sitting and listening to a longer than usual length cartoon on the joys of buying Stokely vegetables is about as interesting watching orange paint dry.
