the scottish reformation banned (apart from mangel-worzel dancing) the wearing of false noses.by wearing a false nose it was thought to be mocking the Lords creation of the body..the main reason that The Lords of Auld Scotland turned against Mary Queen Of Scots was that she insisted on wearing her false nose at the opening of The Scottish Parliment..(for more information on this subject please feel to read The Highways And Byways Of The Scottish Reformation by Rev.Peter Brodie

So a simple question basically ends with a slightly racist explanation. I'm sorry if that ruined Disney and your favorite cartoon friends. If it makes you feel better over time the troubadour shows lost their popularity and whites were only associated with our much-loved cartoons.
