"Ghost Face Killa" (AMAZE!)
This was done by The Electric Company, an American TV series from the 70s (before sesame street took its place). This episode is crazy for so many reasons. It clearly shows/perpetuates the Arab stereotype as ‘the villain’, which is classic of cartoons from those days. I actually just watched some old cartoon tapes from my childhood: Porky Pig, Donald Duck, Popeye, and was incredibly disturbed to see how many of the 'villains' were portrayed as Arabs. Obviously this is still done in the media (shout out to my boy Osama).
On a lighter note, I love that ‘the hero’ is named Letterman, who saves people through the powers of typography!
