Politically Incorrect

Take a look at this 1951 Tex Avery animation called “The Car of Tomorrow “

The 1951 MGM cartoon is supposed to be:

…a humorous look at the possible future of automotive technology…including gadgets aimed at children, female drivers, young drivers and backseat drivers…

Tex Avery

Yet, from today’s modern perspective, the cartoon is so politically incorrect that it makes it difficult for the viewer to even laugh. Jokes making fun of racial stereotypes…

What would the MeToo movement have to say about jokes at the expense of women…

There’s even classic punchlines about pedestrian fatalities…

Just try to watch the cartoon all the way through without being offended. So much for the ‘good old days’.
