Chiquita Banana - The Original Commercial

Animation (Cartoon / Traditional), Other Gems (Advertisements), Viral (Time Capsule)
[ 1:24 - from YouTube ]
This video is part of our Forgotten Commercials: Lost In Time, Found Online Spotlight

This video shows the original 1940's Chiquita banana commercial made by Disney. Like most cartoons of the time, there is an equal amount of Freudian weirdness, cultural insensitivity and innocent sweetness. Please note the sexual-cannibalistic moment when the singing Latina banana interviews three different dorky male bananas about their state of ripeness and readiness for consumption and one peels himself and jumps into her salad...moments later a baby appears. Madmen at work! Si, si si!
