Going' to Heaven on a Mule is worse than nearly all the Warner "Censored 11" cartoons
Just discovered on the Misce-Looney-ous site linked to YouTube this rare Warner Bros. cartoon short directed by Friz Freling that's NOT on the "Censored 11" list. Based on the final number in the Al Jolson picture Wonder Bar, this cartoon is awash in offensive stereotypes of African-Americans like having one take to drink constantly and another one automatically eat a watermelon and a few more automatically playing dice in Heaven which here is called Pair-O'-Dice (Paradise, get it?). And their faces all resembles monkeys, aaarrrggggg! The only thing that's remotely entertaining here is the title number which doesn't surprise me since Freling often made good musical cartoons. So for that alone, this cartoon gets two stars, otherwise I'd only recommend this for Warner animation completists.
