Abstract : The character of Mammy or the black female who served the male community has always been the center of heated discussion both in the academia and elsewhere. This paper looks into the question of race in popular cultural art forms like Tom and Jerry by examining the depiction of black character 'Mammy Two Shoes', and hopes to open a new discussion on the role, function, and reception of comic strips and animated cartoon like Tom and Jerry.
