Chew chew baby original titles


Chew Chew Baby is a Noveltoon made by Famous Studios for release in 1958. It was directed by Isadore Sparber from a story by Irving Spector. Jackson Beck and Jack Mercer provide uncredited voices. Cannibalism is the theme of this film, in which seven characters are attacked (six get swallowed) by a pygmy after he tracks a tourist to Cincinnati.

This cartoon was syndicated to television several years after it was released to theaters. It appeared on children's programs until protests about its violence induced station managers to keep it off the air. It has since achieved cult classic status.

This film shows a strong Tex Avery influence, and copies Avery's blood transfusion gag from Crazy Mixed Up Pup.
