During World War II, Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck, and other celluloid troopers were enlisted to wage a propaganda fight, boost the nation's morale, and make training shorts for the armed forces.

In this informative and entertaining video, film historians and animators (Chuck Jones, Milt Neil, Jerry Beck, et al.) share memories and screen clips that show how studios joined the war on fascism with weapons like “Private Snafu,” “Ducktators,” “Der Fuehrer’s Face,” and “Malaria Marauders.” Provides a fascinating look at the culture, politics, and ethnic bias of wartime America as depicted in Hollywood cartoons.
