King Klunk - Parody of KING KONG (1933)
This excellent and very fun cartoon must come with a big warning about the depiction of the natives on Old Klunk's island paradise. The images and actions are cartoonish and insulting to the non-white races being presented and I think that is a detriment to the show. But at the same time I know what the time period was like and this kind of thing is a part of a lot of entertainment of the times. Indeed, the scenes in KING KONG being parodied are just as offensive, so having this comedy version be racially politically incorrect is rather natural - it's sort of baked into the story. So- if you can enjoy this as a product of its time please do.
