As I remember the "Tarzan" series by Edgar Rice Burroughs were about as bad as any when it comes to racial stereotyping. I suppose it's only a matter of time before the originals are either banned or given the full Disney treatment. Strangely (to me anyway) Uncle Remus stories are regarded as "folk tales" and, as such, largely immune to this kind of criticism.

"The Persistence of Tigers"

I always thought of "Little Black Sambo" as a masterpiece of surrealism more than anything. The tigers run around the tree so fast that they turn into butter! Salvador Dali couldn't have come up with a better plot.
