Looney Tunes!

Got the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2 and I am really enjoying it. Some great cartoons, it really fills in some of the blanks from the first set. Once again, my favorite disk is the one that collects the random one shot cartoons without a major character. Most of them are music based.

Serious collectors have complained that Warner is skipping over the less politically correct cartoons in their catalog. Well, I think they might be testing the waters with the bonus section in this set. They include a live action short with an all monkey cast.

Cool! I love monkeys. Who doesn't?

Well, in the middle of the cartoon the villain monkey goes to get his shoes shined and the shoeshine monkey is in blackface! Let me repeat, A MONKEY IN BLACKFACE.

A monkey in blackface. A real life, living, brown monkey with black makeup on his fur and white lips drawn on. Mel Blanc, who does all the voices for the short, does a stereotypical minstrel voice.

Man, if they're holding back the un-politically correct stuff...
