Coonskin (1975)

Coonskin (1975)
Director: Ralph Bakshi 
Stars: Barry White, Charles Gordone, Scatman Crothers 

Live-action sequences of a prison break bracket the animated story of Brother Rabbit, Brother Bear, and Preacher Fox, who rise to the top of the crime ranks in Harlem by going up against a con-man, a racist cop, and the Mafia. 

Six Things I Learned from Watching Coonskin 

1. Cartoons are the best way to tackle racism. Just ask Bugs Bunny. 

2. Preachers will make sermons even if no one is listening. 

3. Natural cotton sweaters rule! 

4. Miss America has the Clap. 

5. Fat men are hard to bury. 

6. There's nothing wrong with sex unless you get excessive with it.
