Just remember something about this whole crazy cartoon kerfuffle. It has happened before. In 1941.
The offending toon is titled, "Ali Baba Bound." What is remarkable about this toon is what is in it. I will try to give you a scene by scene reconstruction, but I fear I will do it a great injustice. You simply must see it yourselves. Here goes:
Our Hero, Porky Pig is playing the part of a French Legionnaire, stationed at some farflung fort in the Sahara desert during WWII. While walking around and whistling, oblivious of impending danger, he is accosted by a slick and oily spy, who warns him that Ali Baba and his Dirty Sleeves brigandes would be attacking the fortress. He runs back to let the other soldiers know, only to find out that they are nowhere to be found. Of course, they are FRENCH.
He mounts a camel and heads out. Ali Baba and his knife wielding brigandes appear over the horizon....
In one scene, Ali Baba has drawn a very large and pointy knife from his sheath and is seen in shadow, threatening a baby camel, while cackling hysterically...
In the next shot, he is whistling for his men to attack the fort.
They do, using one of their men as a battering ram, and another being hoisted up to fire into the fort. Meanwhile, a short distance off....a man with a large bomb attached to his head is pacing eagerly, awaiting his turn. He is confined to the bench with the sign that reads, "Bench reserved for Suicide Squadron".....
Finally! The suicider gets his chance. He hurls himself toward the fort, and Porky Pig opens the front door, and the bomber runs in, while Porky Pig opens the back door, and the bomber runs out, blowing up his marauding band of cut throats....The final scene...so help me Jehoshephat, shows a rather pouty Ali Baba PICKETTING the fort and the cartoon for "Being unfair to Arabs!"
Just thought you would like to know. The DVD is sold, for 1 All-American dollar, at Wal Mart: Here is the title and number, if you are interested in owning it for yourselves and your posterity:
