  • When the short was re-released in 1948, the NAACP raised a strong objection and as a result, Universal withheld distribution of the short the following year. Even Walter Lantz was shocked (who prided himself on avoiding problems with the censors) and repeatedly stated that his cartoons were never meant to offend anyone. After Universal's decision the withdraw distribution of the short in 1949, Walter Lantz made sure the short would never be distributed on television and to make sure that offensive caricatures of any racial or ethnic group would never appear in his cartoons again.
