Race in Cartoons from the “Golden Age”

Last year for the very first time I saw Bob Clampett’s “Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs” cartoon from 1943.

Ruth Clampett’s daughter Ruth has started her own blog and has some interesting things to say about the history of the cartoon. If you read it, continue on to the comments, they’re insightful.

But don’t read the comments on youtube, they are decidedly not insightful, in the way that only youtube can be.
