YMMV: Censored Eleven
- Acceptable Targets: At the time, yes. Nowadays, not as such.
- Animation Age Ghetto: More than a few people have questioned the legitimacy of the list when plenty of other live-action films for the era of their creation feature racist caricatures just as bad, many of which are considered classics (such as Gone with the Wind or The Jazz Singer).
- Broken Base: Film & animation historians and civil rights activist have... differing opinions on the censorship of these films. Historians criticize the list for attempting to pretend that racism never happened by covering up historically significant films. Civil rights activists defend it as a way to keep these stereotypes from re-entering the mainstream consciousness through films that have no substance outside of racism.
- Overshadowed by Controversy: To the point that more has been written about the racial subject matter in these cartoons than their artistic quality.
- Values Dissonance: To say the least.
- Back then, most of these ethnic jokes were seen as funny.
- Vindicated by History: Coal Black is, despite its black caricatures and outdated World War II references, considered a legitimate classic of animation by numerous animation historians.
