| one of the most racist cartoons that I've ever seen (though still entertaining at times)
About as offensive as a cartoon can be, "Tokyo Woes" starts off with a radio broadcast from Japan's capital. Naturally, the characters have giant teeth and slits for eyes (one even has the same voice as Porky Pig). But over in the United States, Seaman Hook is listening to the broadcast and decides to take charge: he launches a bomb at them.

Obviously, it's a little hard to laugh at this cartoon in the 21st century, especially after Hiroshima. But as long as we understand what it portrays, we can still watch it; in fact, I recommend this cartoon just to show the WWII-era zeitgeist. The end was the seminal prediction of optimism; it has applied off and on since the war ended.
