This civics lesson brought to you by Warner Brothes and Porky Pig
With the amount of attention being currently given to the Pledge of Allegiance and when (or even whether) it should be said, this cartoon sets forth a very direct and basic value to those words that still holds over 60 years later. Allegiance should (actually I feel that it MUST) be given freely and by choice or its valueless. This cartoon, through effective use of rotoscoping (at least it looks like rotoscoping), is an enlightening look into the value of patriotism and makes some compelling arguments in its favor. Recommended.
