Rude Missile and Pretty Girl

Well, here it is folks, the rudest and best animation of a missile I've ever seen.



I love the girl too. Rod Scribner draws the best pretty girls. Even the huge buck teeth don't detract from the immense appeal of his drawings.








This is cartooning and animation at its best!




Anyway, you have to see this in motion to truly appreciate the wizardry of the animation.

Pretty girl? The racist caricature? Wow. You're just flirting with girls that have big teeth, that's my theory. But my theories aren't as flawless as Uncle Eddie's.

My favourite animation in this cartoon is when Miss Tokyo Woes herself is at the mike. That is some of the wildest animation ever done. There are some that would call that "unnecessary overkill" or something like that. But really, Clampett couldn't go far enough for me.

Are you saying a racist caricature can't be pretty? Next you'll be saying it's impossible for real girls with big teeth to be pretty because they are nothing more than walking racist caricatures.

If that's the case, then the big-toothed honeys out there need all the flirting they can get! (They must have horrible self-esteem.)

Or maybe they can be pretty, but those girls just can't show their face to any Asians or they'll be seen as racists.

Gotta miss that overt racism in cartoons.

M. R Darbyshire said...

I will help counter certain comments by agreeing that the girl is super pretty

baldin said...

This is great! Very crazy and well-drawn, look at the girl's hands! So pretty.

HemlockMan said...

Now that's good old-fashioned racism at its finest!

I still want to see the Japanese version of this stuff. I know that they did it.

How delightfully inappropriate. And on every level,too.

Been going through volume five lately?

You really don't notice the more phallic moments in motion, but I have a feeling they were well aware on the production end.

A little look back to when cartoonists were free to caricature EVERY type of human face. I'm sure it was in style then to be biased toward the nasty side, but there were some undeniable truths to them. It's a shame we only get a few of these, and that Coal Black continues to be so shielded from exposure.

Now that white Americans and Europeans are the only groups safe to caricature, it's harder to present
a "rainbow of people" accurately in a exaggerated cartoon style.

"Now that white Americans and Europeans are the only groups safe to caricature, it's harder to present

Actually it apparently is okay now to caricature everyone. You see some pretty wild stuff in the movies these days that I can only describe as caricature.

I read a bit by Spike Lee where he said that they should stop hiding and censoring that stuff. It's there and it is what it is, so get over it--that was the gist of his argument. He said to just enjoy it and stop whining about it.

And I bought the DROOPY DVD a couple of weeks ago and they seem to all be intact, even the racist humor. I've watched about six of them so far and they're all there as I recall them from my childhood.

I agree with Spike Lee. I'm sick and tired of all this moronic, misguided "political correctness" crap.

I have a historic music page on MySpace where I showcase my enormous library of pre-1950 records, and so am I supposed to avoid posting any recordings by Al Jolson, Eddie Cantor, Emmett Miller, or anyone else who ever performed in blackface? That would be just... intellectually dishonest, that's all. When you start throwing selected parts of history "down the memory hole" and pretending that they didn't exist, you're definitely in George Orwell territory!

Oh, and I also think that "Uncle Tom's Cabana" is one of the four or five funniest cartoons that Tex Avery ever made, but will we ever get to see it in a DVD collection? Probably not.

M. R Darbyshire said...

As a Greedy-American, I protest this inaccurate portrayal of banknotes.

Mitch K said...

HAHAHA The animation of the missile leaving is hilarious!

J C Roberts said...

These collections have been good about including some of this material (except Coal Black), but you have to sit through a small eternity while Whoopi Goldberg explains history to us at the start of the discs.

I guess you could put up anything you want online, but even Spike Lee got in trouble for Bamboozled. And a white cartoonist, if he were to try to apply extreme, honest caricature to all races, would be hunted down by protest groups. Of course if you leave them out they'll ask why you didn't put any in.

I have no racial biases myself, but I do have eyes, and can see the common features of all different types of people. I just couldn't apply the same rules to them all if I prefer less bodily harm.


Back to "Tokyo Woes", I watched the whole short last night (Golden Collection volume 5). I'd like to see a post on the scene where he's getting outfitted in his new civvies. That has to be one of the most gelatinous characters I've seen in a long time.

I took a stab at animating. I didn't have any help, budget or colors. I just had a pencil, paper and a red sharpie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGb3UUmpxs4
