" Farmer Al Falfa's Ape Girl "
In the first years of the Thirties, the medium of animation was virtually free from restrictive pressures of censorships .
The majority of the cartoons of this period feature risquè material, expecially the Fleischers and Van Beuren productions .
But Terrytoons too show their quota of sex-related material.
A relatively unknown short, " Farmer Al Falfa's Ape Girl " ( 1932 ), could probably win the prize as being the cartoon which shows more outrageous gags than any other one .
The plot narrates of Farmer Al Falfa's hunting exploration, but our hero only appears near the end of the picture. Before his appearence, we can see a number of gags with protagonist the title character, a beautiful female version of Tarzan of the Apes .
This marvellous "Ape Girl" wears only a bikini top and a really short mini skirt which does not leave anything to imagination!
We can see her having a erotic massage, in which a monkey is giving her a leg and butt rub down, riding a giant ape, swimming while exposing nudity (from the bottom down), using a pair of fish as skates and skating on the water, a hippo as a boat and much more .
When finally our Al Falfa and his faithful pup enter in the picture, she attacks the farmer and, as time goes by and springtime arrives, we see the destiny of our hero: father of a number of Al Falfa-look-a-like kiddies, the last reference to sex in the cartoon .
Enjoy some pics from this pre-Code extravaganza. I hope you'll appreciate the fact that this is no a reissue of the cartoon and it shows original intact title cards.
