I remember this one! You have to look closely at the product names to get the "full effect'.

only two? hah! was it the dancing weed that gave you the idea?

I bet if they tried to re-make this cartoon today, the corporations would insist that the true name of the product be used. Free product placement, free publicity.

Do you think anyone could make such a stereotypical rendition of black people today?

No, proof, I had the same thought and I don't think they'd be able to get away with it in this day and age.
