    Several toys (including lots of stereotyped black toys) try and help their plantation owner by holding a toy horse race so Simon Legree can't foreclose.

    According to Michael Barrier's book "Hollywood Cartoons," this was the first of the Happy Harmonies to use three-color Technicolor (Disney's lock on the process ended on August 31, 1935).

    Not currently shown on American television due to potentially offensive African-American characterizations.

    this one works: it puts you immediately into the imagination of a child to see her toys come alive in a simple plot in which the wind-up horse, 'Black beauty' must win a race against other toys in order to save the Old Plantation, a doll house.

    Other people will object, no doubt, to the stereotype of the era. Harman and Ising did a lot of cartoons that today are considered to be too racist to show to easily influenced children -- or their parents who can't tell the difference between a cartoon from more than seventy years ago and real life today.
