Valentine Cartoon 2: Cupid Gets His Man (1936)

"Another quality Van Beuren studios cartoon that is now in the Public Domain. Van Beuren was finished when it's distributor (RKO) switched from Van Beuren to Disney in 1936. "

Apparently the cupids are fascist. Also there's a blackface gag at 01:53. That wouldn't make it in animations nowadays. Black people weren't able to defend themselves back in 1936. Mean whiteys!
