"Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs"
[Warner Bros./Vitaphone Jan 1943]
Coal Black & de Sebben Dwarfs cartoon short poster  Yup, there was such a film, and it was made and released by a major studio. In its time, it was considered a funny parody on the "Snow White" feature film released by Disney in 1937, but in later years has become offensive to many. Banned for release by United Artists in 1968; rarely seen on TV and not released on home video. The color short has a reputation for excellence, for the animation as well as for the jazz & swing music score. Produced by Leon Schlesinger; directed by Bob Clampett
