Mickey, Donald, and Goofy are cleaning a large clock. Among the complications: Mickey fights a sleeping stork that doesn't want to leave, Donald gets tangled up in the main-spring, and Goofy is inside the bell when the clock strikes four.
When the Wolf telephoned headquarters and stops to ask "Is that you Myrt?" that was a direct reference to the popular "Fibber McGee & Molly" radio show. McGee would always begin his telephone conversations by asking the Wistful Vista telephone operator the very same question. Further reference to the radio show is also made here in that Bill Thompson, who does the voice of the Wolf in this cartoon, got most popular as the off screen voice of "Droopy Poodle", also performed as the Old-Timer in this war cartoon.

[coming up to the First Pig's house of straw; speaking in faux German]
Open the door! Or I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!
But Adolf, that would break our treaty. You're a good guy. Why, you hate war. You wouldn't go back on your word.
Are you kidding?
[the wolf laughs and brings in "Der Mechanized Huffer und Puffer" to blow down the house, but the First Pig manages to escape]

'Blitz Wolf' is a terrific animated short made by Tex Avery. It is an anti-Nazi and anti-Hitler adaptation from 'Three Little Pigs'. The wolf, who walks like the Nazis and talks German, comes to the houses of the three pigs. The first two pigs lose their home but the third has made his house into a bunker with all kind of weapons. Together the three pigs fight the wolf.
This is a great little movie with some beautiful gags. The short itself gives some comments on the jokes, which makes it even funnier. Although it is pretty aggressive and therefore not really suitable for children, this Oscar-nominated cartoon is one of the better ones I have seen.
