"Listen well, all of you!", "Pygmy Cannibals,"
is nothing more than an insignificant stub.

It is in desperate need of more content.
So says Maleficent:
the Mistress of All Evil.

You Poor Unfortunate Soul, this "Pygmy Cannibals,"
has been found to need Ursula’s Touch.
It MUST be rewritten, see the light, and make a switch!!
So says Ursula:
the true queen of Atlantica.

Even for its time, the pygmy cannibals are an unfortunate stereotype of three hungry cannibals whom Donald mistakes for his three nephews in the 1954 animated short, Spare the Rod. The stereotype is even worse when it's seen that they are originally caged and escaped from a travelling circus.


Due to controversy about ethnic stereotypes, television airings of the cartoon Spare the Rod removed all scenes depicting these characters, hence rendering Spare the Rod as a VERY SHORT cartoon, running for about 3 minutes.
