Today I’m going to watch some classic Warner Brother cartoons from the 1940s, produced by Leon Schlesigner, who helped create Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig. Below I’ve included a couple of my favorite clips to show you what early 1940s cartoons taught me as a young impressionable child.
I will also be avoiding relatives. Here are some classic cartoons and the invaluable lessons they taught me.
The Henpecked Duck taught me a few things about marriage and raising a family. Nothing positive.
1) Marriage is a living hell where you get abused by your wife, physically ad verbally.
2) Divorce sucks, so get a pre-nup.
3) If your wife has a shrill voice, she will end up being a terrible person.
4) Magic is evil and will ruin your marriage.
Robinson Crusoe Jr. also taught me many valuable lessons. On racism. And America.
1) Rats are smart creatures (those Jews).
2) Black men are great at singing minstrel shows, especially when they are in black body (as opposed to blackface).
3) Black men enjoy being subjugated by pigs.
4) All natives are savage cannibals (duh!).
5) America saves!
