| Sunday Go to Meetin' Time is one of the Censored 11 that has some entertainment value
This was the second, in chronological order, of the Censored 11 Warner Bros. cartoons I've watched on Thad's Animation Blog. Sunday Go to Meetin' Time has the stereotypical drawn caricature of African-Americans with big white lips as well as the Stepin' Fetchit prototype in leading character Nicodemus. A really offensive scene has a mother putting shoe polish on her bald kids' heads then the father shining them on the other side. Other than that, this was a pretty entertaining musical cartoon about the leading character going to Hell and back. That Friz Freling directed this should come as no surprise since his musical shorts are usually some of the most entertaining. Worth a look for any animation buff who's aware of certain time period acceptance of certain stereotypes.
