Who Killed Cock Robin Cartoon (Walt Disney 1935)



It's really a very odd story to begin with, coupled with the cheery 1930's Disney soundtrack it's even more strange. There are so many bizarre aspects to this cartoon- the nameless, archaic caricature of a black male saying "I don't know nuthin' at all", the preening, over-sexed, hussy-fied Jenny Wren, the jury lynch mob chanting "We don't know who is guilty so we're gonna hang them all", the effeminate cupid kewpie bird.... makes for a very strange cartoon indeed.
