Jungle Jitters is a 1938 Merrie Melodies animated cartoon.

The film is infamous for being one of the Censored Eleven.

This cartoon contains examples of:

  • Abhorrent Admirer: The queen towards the salesman.
  • Alliterative Title: Jungle Jitters.
  • Ambiguously Human: The village queen lacks a nose and her face has a sort of bird-like look.
  • Asian Speekee Engrish: One of the guards inexplicably has a stereotypical Japanese accent and mannerisms.
  • Advertisement:
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: The queen greets the audience, and asks their opinion on the salesman's looks.
  • Dogface: The salesman.
  • Fate Worse than Death: The salesman is so disgusted at the thought of marrying the queen that he decides he'd rather be eaten by the villagers.
  • Meat-O-Vision: The villagers see the salesman as a giant roast chicken.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: The salesman is a parody of Al Pearce's character Elmer Blurt, and there's a brief parody of actor Stephen Fetchit.
  • Regret Eating Me: The salesman hopes that he gives the villagers indigestion when they eat him.
