A Crocodile

Coal Black isn't racist. It's racially sensitive, particularly with the default-setting use of "darky iconography" in the character design, but that's not the same thing as racist. It was made by a man who loved Black American culture and wanted to see it celebrated - at the suggestion of Duke Ellington. Apart from Mel Blanc, the entire cast is African-American, including Dorothy Dandridge's mother and sister. For 1943, this really isn't bad.
