Conclusion, Page 286

The radical deformation of the body that Eisenstein referred to as plasmaticness, is performed in The Foghorn Leghorn (1948), as it had been earlier in Snow White (1932). Comedy is an exercise in repetition and, via the minstrel, oppression and social injustice are translated into gags that churn out a violent, abject, fantastic blackness, over and over again.
