cartoons & WW2 propaganda

Bugs Bunny, Warner brothers made a series of WW2 cartoons. A few were censored. This is one of my favorites

Song written by Irving Berlin, first performed by Danny Kaye. 3/4 of the way through bugs comes out in black face (it makes no sense) Today I can not imagine cartoons taking on a support a war effort.

Disney put out a box set of their war-support films, including "Pvt. Snafu" and various training films. The centerpiece of that set was "In der Fuehrer's Face".

I believe the "blackface" comes from Al Jolson, who was popular back in that day.

I was given a big book of "The Beano" 1939-45. Some of the stuff is hilarious, I will post some cartoons on here when I get the chance.

My favourite is one of a giant Churchill smashing German bombers out of the sky over London like King Kong.
