Racism in Animation 10 - Popeye: You're a Sap Mr. Jap (

Popeye was extremely popular at the time.

"Cartoons like this were shown in theaters coast to coast in order to build up moral and our fighting spirit. Racist or not It truely reflected the american view of japanese at that time. Remember that while seeking a peace plan, they also sent an armada to attack us if we didn't agree with their emperialistic goals."



France fought America back by making fun of these cartoons...
