Cartoon Summary:


A blackface parody of Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs with a strong swing backbeat... and no apologies!

Mammy (who resembles Aunt Jemima) tells her "Honey Child" the story of "So White" and the wicked Queen who "was as rich as she was mean." "She had everything," including sugar, coffee, auto tires, scrap metal, Chattanooga choo-choos, and a family coat of arms consisting of dice and switchblades. So White is a lascivious sexpot forced to wash miles and miles of laundry as she sings "Blues in the Night." "Magic Mirror on the wall, send me a prince about six feet tall," intones the Queen. When zoot-suited, thick-lipped hipster Prince Chawmin' (who has dice for teeth!) finds So White "dynamite," the Queen calls in Murder Inc. to "black out So White." Prince Chawmin' and the dwarfs are all miniature caricatures of Fats Waller, except for one who resembles Stepin Fetchit. The prince kisses and tries to revive the heroine.

My opinion...

Comments By:
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...  (read more)

It's been said that you can't know where you're going unless you know where you came from. This 1940s era cartoon, at the time it was released, was considered "OK" ... and kids today need to know that this era was an era of...  (read more)
