Looking at Cannibal Capers purely from the perspective as a piece of Disney animation history, there are a few interesting points: it was the very first Silly Symphony made without the contribution of Ub Iwerks or Carl Stalling, it has a few clever gags, and it was the first cartoon to feature Floyd Gottfredson as an animator (Floyd would go on to write and draw the much-beloved Mickey Mouse daily comic strip). However, the poorly conceived racial stereotyping of the title characters make this short difficult to watch, and equally difficult to recommend.
