Lady and the Tramp (Walt Disney Pictures, 1955)

Directors, Clyde Geronimi Wilfred Jackson, et al. Voices: Peggy Lee, Barbara Luddy, Larry Roberts, Bill Thompson, Bill Baucon, Steve Freberg, Verna Felton, Alan Reed, George Givot, Dallas McKennon, Lee Millar. An animated musical about Lady, a lovingly pampered cocker spaniel, and Tramp, a jaunty freedom-loving mutt with a heart of gold, who share an enthralling romance and thrilling adventures.
One of the most well-recognized racist symbols perpetuated by Disney is the portrayal of Siamese cats in Lady and the Tramp. Like stereotypical Asians, they are buck-toothed and have slanted eyes, and speak in ridiculously exaggerated accents that bear little, if any, resemblance to actual Thai speech patterns. They were portrayed as cunning, manipulative, and evil. ; Credits and other information from the Internet Movie Database
