Oddball Films presents Blackballed Cartoons! An evening of banned or censored cartoons filled with racism, sexism, drug references and more. Subjects routinely featured in American animation – many of these cartoons were shown on TV through the late 1960’s until they were pulled from distribution. Swept from the public eye as an embarrassment and considered a danger to the public, these cartoons are nonetheless a part of American cultural and artistic history, should be available, and perhaps need to be seen. Titles include: Coal Black and The Sebben Dwarfs, Tokio Jokio, Little Black Sambo, All This and Rabbit Stew, The Rasslin’ Match (with Amos and Andy), Minnie the Moocher, Bacall To Arms, Lumber Jerks, Buried Treasure and more.

Admission: $10 – Limited Seating RSVP to programming@oddballfilm.com or 415-558-8117
