Good Ol’ Fashioned Racism: Bugs Bunny Cartoon

17 Sep

I’m too young to remember when Looney Tunes was in its racist prime, although Asian stereotyping was in full effect, but I definitely caught a few questionable episodes back in the 80s.

I definitely never saw anything quite like this banned Bugs Bunny cartoon.

Warning: Extremely offensive.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Sigh. Just a reminder of how comedy has evolved (or not evolved) throughout time.

    Am I the only one who saw this as offensive and not [i]extremely[/i] offensive?

    I am viewing this through 2009 eyes, though.

    Holy shit!!! First character is too offensive…But we all watched that when we were young..What was the motivation for this? What I want to know is who was doing the voice for the black dude?
