I wonder if Gene Kelley ever tried SIGINTHERAIN.

Bundled brain itch.  Makes me want to scrape my teeth on a chalkboard.  I like it.

So, yeah, this is pretty much entirely true.  This stuff is really fucked up if you watch it in the right mood (such as after reading this article).  But it gets better.  Go rewatch the last cartoon, pausing every now and then to imagine what you'd get if you remade it with modern CGI, motion capture, and mixing of live-action.  Think like Gollum's technology applied to replicating what happens in that cartoon.

Don't do this before trying to go to sleep.

The main thing to understand here is that Disney aside, the idea that cartoons are for children is actually quite a recent development.  Betty Boop, Tom & Jerry, and the old Looney Tunes were all primarily targeted toward ADULTS, not children.  So in that context, it's not at all surprising that they take on some heady themes.

And since they're products of their time, yes, they're often going to contain ideas we'd find abhorrent.  Lots of cartoons from the 20s well into the 60s contain blatant racism (see, e.g. the maid in Tom & Jerry, or any number of blackface characters in the Betty Boop cartoons.)

Today's episode of Results of Experiments You Shouldn't Have Conducted is brought to you by my cat and six months of un-filed bills lying on top of a bag of Reese's peanut butter minicups for almost a year.

The peanut butter went rather chalky, and they're badly misshapen.  Other than that, this is an endorsement for whatever cocktail of preservatives are in those things.

That's actually why I noticed it... I definitely am used to people talking very fast, but this guy went above and beyond. It definitely did sound like he turned the audio onto 1.5 speed or something, just a little too fast to be natural.

And that's New Jersey... we are not a crown dependency haha. ;)

This music makes me think of a cross between Natural Born Killers and steampunk.

Very welcoming. Very professional. I've gotten both my piercings here, just moved, nothing complicated, but it was clean and friendly.
