Ep 13: bonus short—Coal Black and De Sebben Dwarves

Hoo boy. After we came out relatively unscathed from Song of the South,  we made the mistake of watching Coal Black and De Sebben Dwarves, one of the “Censored 11” cartoons and probably the worst thing we’ve ever seen. This is a bonus short episode, because we couldn’t even.

Coal Black

 

You can watch the entire cartoon here. Neither Brandi nor Bill recommends that you do.

Ep. 12: Song of the South

As we get even looser with our definition of “Blaxploitation, ” Brandi and Bill watch Song of the South, the infamous Disney movie that has never been released on home video in the US. Is it the most racist movie ever made? Let’s find out!

Try to remember your life before you saw this movie. I dare you. Brandi and Bill take on Petey Wheatstraw, the Devil’s Son-in-Law, starring the legendary Rudy Ray Moore.

Ep. 10: The Wiz

It’s the episode that has long threatened to tear the Blaxploitation Podcast in two! Brandi and Bill take on The Wiz. Will it stand the test of time? Will Scarecrow get a brain? Will Diana Ross cry in every scene?

Bonus: the Sesame Street bit Brandi mentions in the podcast:

Ep. 9: The Black Klansman

Believe it or not, we’re back! Believe it or not, it’s with an episode we recorded in December 2014! Believe it or not, Bill forgot to post it! Believe it or not, it’s about a black man who joins the Klan!

Ep 7: Tyler Perry!

Hoo boy. This episode is an uphill climb as we tackle two, two, two Tyler Perry films: Madea’s Witness Protection and Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counsellor. Brandi and Bill are joined by Sharon “The Birdchick” for a long, angry discussion.
