Episode 35: Coonskin

December 23, 2021

Coonskin was animator Ralph Bakshi's first real bomb, attracting far more controversy for its racially charged content than box office. Emmett Watkins Jr. bravely joins me today to talk about this controversial cult classic that's problematic with a capital P, but absolutely fascinating.

Content warning: Lots of discussion on racial issues and homophobia, with descriptions and clips of scenes that some might find disturbing.
