Mammy Two Shoes, voiced by Lillian Randolph, is a stereotypical black maid, so called because all that is generally seen are her legs and feet as she enters or leaves a scene. Because of the implied racism of the stereotype, she was edited out of the shorts for a time. A similar character is seen in the Tom and Jerry cartoons.

Disney filmography

Tom and Jerry counterpart

William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, also created a black housemaid with the same name, design and voice as the Disney version for Tom and Jerry cartoons at MGM. Although they are the same in character, the only differences are she is more musophobic (fear of mice), having her rely on her pet cat Tom to catch Jerry.
