There's also an episode where the white kids unknowingly apply blackface while playing with ashes (which rightfully infuriates Chef), among other instances like Stan getting surgery to make himself Black in another episode.

Sort of. The board game at the center of the plot has a racist depiction of a black person as the centerpiece. Also the mask the villain wears could be seen as blackface

there's the dnd episode with dark-elf-face, but there's also what I believe is brownface in the fist chang dynasty. Pierce dresses up in a swami outfit and I'm pretty sure his skin is darkened. It's not too noticable tho.

RDJ’s character for a vast majority of the movie, since essentially his character is a method actor that was so desperate for the part of a black man that he went through cosmetic surgery to have his skin darkened. It’s essentially elaborate satire of the absurd lengths Hollywood is often willing to go to to deny roles to minority actors done in a ermm *tsk* “ballsy way”

Some alien characters resemble blackface and the appearance of a few black characters is kinda stereotypical.

Zoolander and Owen Wilson’s character use race-face to disguise themselves as POC working at Mugatu’s event to sneak into it. They’re physically portrayed by nonwhite actors in this scene IIRC but their voices are the same. Gag where Zoolander is covered in coal dust and made to look like blackface.

In a roundabout way - a black character is lighter skinned than his band, and so is pressured into darkening his skin in order to be able to sell a film in the segregated south.

Episodes S4E3, S6E9, S8E2, S9E9 and S14E3 all have blackface. These episodes are removed from streaming services, so you can't watch them without specifically looking for them. The characters doing it are obviously in the wrong as usual but still.

Many older Godzilla movies sadly feature actors in brownface. However, King Kong vs. Godzilla is probably the one where it is the most obvious and offensive

the Lars call in episode 33 also is a form of blackface. Lars is played by Alec, a white man. The Lars character is an offensive caricature of black people.

To deal with a racist patient, Hawkeye and Trapper paint his skin brown after giving him blood plasma. They then feed him watermelon and fried chicken. After the patient has been on the receiving end of this treatment for a while, Hawkeye tells him the story of the doctor who invented the separation process for blood plasma and red blood cells.
