History Through Cartoons: A Plea
Going back further in time, there's the horribly-offensive but potently-honest portrayals of racism in old Betty Boop cartoons. And finally, one of my favorites, a retelling, cautionary glimpse that reflects anxieties around WWII, through the eyes of cartoon squirrels, of course.
OK, so if anyone has tackled this project, let me
know when the book is out (or if there's one out there that I somehow missed?) and I'll buy it! What do you think? Would you be interested in such a book? If there's interest out there, maybe I'll write it myself.
