“Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs” (1943)

This is not only easily the best “Censored Eleven” cartoon, it’s one of the absolute very best Looney Tunes cartoons, period. There is just so much to like about this cartoon. This is an excellent parody of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This is one of the more subtler examples of a WWII propaganda cartoon. The gags in this one are highly original and really funny. The music is fantastic. The ending is fantastic. And So White, despite being a parody of Snow White, actually makes for the more interesting and entertaining lead character. This was clearly a passion project for director Bob Clampett, and that passion oozes through in every single frame. It truly is a one of a kind, and extremely entertaining experience that doesn’t at all deserve the thrashing it’s received for being one of the “Censored Eleven.” If you only check out at least one of the eleven, I would highly recommend that you make it this one.
