Matt linked to a fascinating essay on politically-incorrect cartoons. It’s hard to believe that Bugs Bunny cartoons were ever that blatantly racist and that general audiences just accepted it. I was immediately reminded of Mickey Rooney’s character in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and this excellent article on the history of “yellowface” in the cinema. Man, this stuff makes me wish I was back doing Film Studies at uni!
