The Three Little Pigs. (Walt Disney, 1933)

"When first released, The Three Little Pigs contained a scene of the Wolf disguised as the "Fuller Brush Man": an outrageous Jewish peddler ethnic stereotype complete with long beard and a huge, hooked nose. Quickly, Disney relooped the ethnic-sounding voice track, and in the 1940's actually re-animated the scene without the Jewish peddler diguise." This version includes the original animation with the relooped voice. [description from Whole Toon Catalog] ;
