Tom & Jerry: Redskin Blues (1932)

Info from

Tom and Jerry find their wagon west attacked by Indians, but escape only after being rescued by all the branches of the military, including the Army's tanks.

A cartoon with lots of music and action as well as ethnic stereotypes the 1930s way: "An unremarkable wild west cartoon is improved by the comedy of the unexpected. Numerous seemingly fat, cloaked Indians are unwrapped to reveal beautiful girls; when the cavalry leader uncloaks the Chief, he's revealed as a Jewish caricature. The Jewish Indian was a standard vaudeville gag at the time, in part the result of Fanny Brice's hit song on the theme (I'm an Indian)." (
