| No matter how hard they tried, they just couldn't make slavery and slave torment FUNNY!
Even if this cartoon had been made well (which it wasn't), it seems like an impossible task to make the sad and sentimental story of Uncle Tom's Cabin funny!! It's sort of like laughing at physical disabilities or cancer--they are sure laugh destroyers! In many ways, the film almost makes it seem like the whole slavery and Simon Legree elements of the book are funny! Go figure! And, then having Liza crossing the ice flow in the dead of winter be FUNNY?!?! Huh?! In general, the cartoon isn't particularly funny, though its racist elements (such as dancing "pickininnies" and having Uncle Tom shooting dice) aren't as bad as some of the more notorious Warner Brothers banned cartoons--but it still is understandably offensive. The film IS worth watching for its historical interest, but only a maniac would try to get a copy of this film for their kids!!
