We were traveling in France, and I was watching some Tom & Jerry cartoons in the hotel room. I thought I had seen every single T&J ever created, but I found myself watching one I had never even heard of.

It was "His Mouse Friday". It was made in 1951, and it was set on a cannibal island. You had better believe there was blackface galore. Also, Jerry spoke! (He was trying to fake out Tom that he was one of the natives and was speaking cannibal gibberish.)

I guess this cartoon had been banned in the U.S., but France had no problem showing it uncut.
