About

Mammy refers to an exploitable image of the Looney Tunes character, Bugs Bunny.

Origin

Any Bonds Today? was a 90-second cartoon that was released in movie theaters as an advertisement to encourage people to buy War Bonds.

Leon Schlesinger's cartoon featured Warner Bros. character, Bugs Bunny and other Looney Tunes character singing the derivative of the song "Any Yams Today?".

The racial dilemma in the advertisement was that during the song, Bugs Bunny transforms into an all-out minstrel approximately at 1:02.

The 15-second sequence is actually a parody of Al Jolson in the theatrical make-up Blackface

What is Blackface?

The cartoon advertisement was later-banned for the racial negligence of the use of Blackface.

Blackface was a racist theatrical makeup created back in the 19th century. Its intention?

To make an actor look like a stereotypical African-American.



Though, the video was redefined with the excess color and was later aired on Cartoon Network as a tribute to Bug Bunny's early work.

Oh, Exploitable!

Wikipedia's article on "Any Bonds Today?" featured a screen shot of the redefined commercial.


against a patriotic backdrop, at one point going into a t refrain, he is joined by Porky Pig, in Navy uniform, and Elmer は, s in blackface, singing to "Uncle Sammy", has been ved from modern releases of the film. Cartoon Network, which in as part of a "June Bugs" marathon, ultimately decided to pull pict ethnic stereotypes. I should be of note, however, that t removed, on a ToonHeads special about lost and rare Warne Jolson in blackface Bugs Bunny parodies Al aturing the Elmer Fudd modeled after his voice actor, Arthur Q. Bryan, which is fatter than the with a fat Elmer because he could not make Porky as fat as he was in his first cartoon, / [edit]


This photo obviously didn't take long for it to become an exploitable on 4chan.

The thread appearing in 4chan archive featured numerous amounts of variations.
