Scrub Me Mama With A Boogie Beat 10 out of 5 stars

Its stereotypes detract little from the fact that this is a real fine cartoon musical--and that Walter Lantz was a top-notch director.

Let's Boogie!

I used to work in Oakland, California. I have known many Black people and none of them acted like this. This is not a documentary - it is a cartoon and as such it is a lively one. The music is fabulous. I have it on film and have watched it for years - I never tire of it. If you cannot differentiate between real life and cartoons, then watch something else. However, "If you like boogie woogie rhythm - and you've got a beat - then the boogie woogie washerwoman gives you a treat..."

Ooooh, boy, when you see this one, you've just got to ask "What were they thinking?' Every obsolete black stereotype ever created is rolled out in this one, from watermelon eatin' to sing' and dancin'.Oddly enough, the racial "conflict" is between urbanized blacks (from up north) and rural blacks (from down south) Definitely hard to watch these days. About all you can say in it's defense is that the 'toon is scored with some truly fine music.Copies are hard to get, but a surprising amount of the original art is available from dealers.
