A famously bizarre cartoon by Tex Avery from 1952. After its
release, it was sometimes censored--the Chinese and black face bits edited out. But it was also selected in 1993  for preservation in the Library of
Congress's National Film registry as being "culturally, historically or
aesthetically significant." Apologies for the poor visual quality of this clip
... but you get the idea.
