I guess it was only now starting to get offensive. coffeetime.gif

Black doll cut from Swedish Disney mash-up

SVT said that at least two scenes will be cut from this year's staple diet of Christmas television programming.

One scene features a black doll parading before Santa Claus before stamping herself on the behind with Santa's 'OK' quality stamp. The doll has dreadlocks and oversized red lips, corresponding broadly to stereotypes that many find offensive.

A second now-deleted scene shows a man in a green suit with an oversize nose, white beard, and black hat performing a Cossack dance. That has been cut as it could be perceived as playing on stereotypes of Jews.

What this article didn't mention is that blonde doll was also cut out (Swedish news said). They probably couldn't be that obviously hypocritical. chuckle.gif

Here's the original, the cut out scenes are at 3:33 and 5:30

We watched a horrible movie the other night... Santa Claus (1959)

Quote:With the aid of Merlin, Santa Claus must defeat the evil machinations of the devil Pitch to ruin Xmas.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053241/

Dialog:

Lucifer: "You, Pitch, chief of all my demons, must listen closely. The time is almost here when you must abandon the brimstone pits and journey up to Earth, but this time you must not fail at your appointed task. You must not be defeated by the bearded old goat, Santa Claus. If you do not succeed in making all the children of the Earth do evil, you shall be punished."

Narrator: "Who are these three? Say, it's rude to push and shove like that, but the devil likes rude little boys and it doesn't take him long to find them. They're just right for his evil plans."

Santa (reading a letter): "My dear Santa Claus, this year I have behaved very well. I have been obedient and have studied very much. For that reason, please try to bring me these toys: a toy automobile, a submarine, a football, a bat, roller skates, a scooter, a cannon, a rocket, a bicycle, an atomic laboratory, a machinegun...oohhhh, oooohhhh!"

Santa: "In that case, I couldn't get back to the castle, and on what they use for food I'd perish, because here our main food is pastries and ice cream made of soft cloud and on the Earth there's no such thing."

Child: "What food do they eat on Earth, Santa Claus?"

Santa: "Oooo, everything in sight! They eat most of the animals, the plants, the flowers, the roots, birds - even smoke and alcohol!"

Old cartoons are great, aren't they? They were a truer reflection of the societal reality of their times, rather than a societal cover-up and shaper of public opinion; in other words, they were still fun.

It does seem rather 'hypocritical' when you think about it, though, doesn't it...?

Yes I love old cartoons. This political correctness is just over the top ridiculous and sucks the humor out of everything.

I watched a huge number of old cartoons with an old friend of mine, recently...

I was surprised at some of the symbolism that they included in these 'cartoons,' but you should also remember that these were shown to mostly an adult audience at the time as a 'feature' before the main film was presented at the theater. That means that a good number of the audience was familiar with these symbols, and understood the 'messages' on a whole other level...

They weren't always meant to be humorous, per se, but there was always a little something to laugh about, for the ones that didn't get the 'message,' that is.
