I think in some of the reeeeaaallly old ones, Porky Pig sometimes went hunting--then again, I'm pretty sure Elmer Fudd indirectly evolved from the Porky Pig character.

When I was a kid there was this obviously rather crazy man down the street who'd occasionally wander around the neighborhood randomly shooting at rabbits in people's yards--illegal, of course--dressed like a cross between Elmer Fudd and the Pillsbury Doughboy (I was never fully sure whether the latter items were actually cook's clothing, or just some really weird pajamas). When we saw him coming my brothers and I would elbow each other and snicker "Be vewwy quiet, I'm hunting wabbits..." In retrospect I have to shake my head in amazement that no one ever reported him (so far as I know) although several neighbors, including my father, would usually charge out into their yards shouting and cursing at him whenever that happened, and he always wound up going home shortly after that.

Here's a link to an in depth episode review/discussion and a pic of Porky Pig with shotgun on a hunting trip.

There's also a great documentary, but unfortunately to my knowledge only available in German, about Disney's and other cartoon's role in WWII. Among others this video:

Yes, it definitely is. The documentary was based on, I think, a doctor's thesis about cartoons in World War II. There is also a lot of cartoons that called for joining the military or simply paying taxes in order to support the country. Many of them were banned or sent to the archives once the war had ended, others even never got released. Especially those calling for paying taxes were hidden from the public eye, before someone could call 'em Socialist.

Actually I believe I have. Can't remember what the context was but I did see some of it, and yes it was racist and sexist but. . . .I still love it

It's kind of ironic because here we were a bunch of kids with an Asian grandmother and lots of Asian relatives and we're just laughing right along. . .

The part where they let loose those logs and they roll down and bonk the pirates on the head--the best!

But that's slightly off-topic.
Oh gosh. I got tired just watching that.
