#CotD: One of WB’s infamous Cenored Eleven, “The Isle Of Pingo Pongo” was the first of many Tex Avery Warner Bros. spot-gag-filled parodies of travelogues.
The Isle Of Pingo Pongo (1938) – Merrie Melodies Cartoon Series
A travelogue which gets in all the usual sight gags (“Sandwich Islands,” “Canary Islands”), it turns downright mean-spirited when dealing with the natives. Ubangi-style lips are served as dinner plates, lips serve as trumpets. Fierce drummers do a riff on “She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain When She Comes,” and a Fats Waller type contributes to a scat-style rendition of “Sweet Georgia Brown.”
