Definitely one of my favorite cartoons ever. I love the musical score- especially the boogie-woogie by the narrator and bears' swing at the end. Like Coal Black, Red Hot Riding Hood and Tin Pan Alley Cats I wish I could get the soundtrack to listen to. The dialogue, jokes, and references are very funny. Bugs Bunny funny. And I love Goldilocks- she's uniquely and breathtakingly gorgeous, loveable and such a sweetheart. She's pretty shy and demure- until you get her on the dance floor! This cartoon isn't insulting at all and the only offensive thing in the whole cartoon is the way some of the characters are drawn, I mean shoot, the bears didn't have to have lips! But I can definitely get past that to enjoy the rest of the cartoon, and so should you. This should not be banned. So anyway, here's my detailed comments about the "Censored 11" in general (so I don't have to keep repeating it):

I am a big fan of any Wolf, Red, and Droopy cartoon. This is Red's second cartoon and she's looking noticeablly taller and curvier. If I had to choose, I would say she looks her most gorgeous here. I love her voice and moves as well and for me is my favorite part of the whole cartoon. Her design, voice, and animation is breathtaking and Jessica Rabbit could never top it. However, the humor was great also, full of nonstop jokes-both dialogue and visual gags. ("Drinks on the house boys", "You might as well move along- I ain't budging all through the picture!")

I am a huge fan of this cartoon for so many reasons. The music. The animation. The humor and WWII jokes. That cutie So White. The big lips on some of the characters hurt me at first, but then I was very able to get past that and see the positive of this cartoon and similar cartoons which far outweighed the negative. Some cartoons depicting blacks definitely offend me but this particular short has more positive and neutral elements than negative. As far as big lips go, I understand the concept of caricatures. Black people's full lips may be exaggerated to grotesque proportions, but white people's long noses are often exaggerated to grotesque proportions as well. Because they're CARTOONS, get it? Even the worst stereotypes depicted in the old cartoons aren't anywhere near as damaging as contemporary stereotypes depicted on BET and MTV. For me, these are the real minstrel shows. I'd like to copy and paste part of a letter I wrote to the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia that sums up my opinion very well (pardon the anger and language but I was having a pretty bad day so I blew my top when I wrote it):

"Wow...Iím in a paroxysm of anger here; I canít explain this eloquently, but hopefully youíll understand. I am a teenage black girl who has to deal with embarrassing stereotypes and ignorance everyday. You know, it really infuriates me is the cliche "Weíve come a long way." That's very naÔve. The stereotypes of the past such as watermelon, toms, and mammies have been replaced with much worse stereotypes such as bucks, wanton jezebel sluts, "smokiní crack and rapiní b*tches," etc. I think the bigger problem here is modern-day minstrelsy, and itís not being emphasized enough in your museum. And whatís even worse is that these modern stereotypes are self-debasing ones that blacks bring upon themselves, and whites and black youth glorify this sh*t. The moral decay in black America (and all of America) makes me want to vomit. It also imposes an inferiority complex on black youth. I have a great disdain for hip-hop and modern-day minstrel "coons" such as Snoop Dogg and Kings of Comedy, not because I hate my people, but for the complete opposite reason. And all of this so-called political correctness bullsh*t -- theyíll waste all this effort censoring a blackface bunny in a Looney Tunes cartoon, but they'll regard these rap videos and degrading vulgar low comedy as acceptable? "

And if hating rap and our country's moral decay makes me a prude, so be it. My mama and dad raised me to have some integrity. I'm not saying you have to hate rap yourself, but you sure as heck better not approve of rap and then badmouth Coal Black. Then not only would you be a hypocrite but you'd be depriving the world of great cartoons and music. And while fortunately there's some decent educated balanced reviews on Coal Black you wouldn't believe the slander and biased negative slant it has on certain articles- like wikipedia and this other extremist blogger crumb named Yolanda something. Isn't it about time the reign of political correctness as fallen? I look foward to the day where I can watch Coal Black in hi-res on DVD. And let's get CB's killer-diller soundtrack on CD already! Oh yeah, and defense of one of my favorite cartoon characters, So White isn't a ho. She's just sexy and flirty and knows how to flirt her way out of trouble- Black Betty Boop. Notice the double standard- she's no more sexual than Betty Boop but just because she is black she is immediately labeled as some "lascivious jezebel". Chick from Hallelujah was a jezebel. Lil' Kim and the rap video chicks are jezebels. Foxxy Love from Drawn Together was a jezebel. But So White? Just a 40's pinup sweetheart and just as pretty as Ms. Boop and the Disney princesses. Betty Boop's babydoll face, Betty Grable's legs/skirt, and Jane Russell's curves-in pure chocolate-voiced by Dorothy Dandridge's equally cute (IMO) sister. Yowza!

Conclusion: I dig Coal Black and ALL OF YOU HATERS STOP BRINGING IT DOWN AND SLANDERING IT! Itís a free country for the rest of us too you know.
