Quotes:
Adolf Wolf:[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!
First Pig:But Adolf, that would break our treaty. You're a good guy. Why, you hate war. You wouldn't go back on your word.
Adolf Wolf: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]

"No dogs/japs allowed"..., 27 January 2008
Author: stalker vogler from Xanadu

...this is the sort of WWII "gag" that got cartoons as this and Der Fuehere's Face banned. The racial content seems misplaced today and the harmful potential makes it unfit for the kids. But on the other hand cartoons as this one also show how deranged a lot of things are today in our society, because after years of fighting against censorship we still have to watch out what we "imply" in everything we do on account of politically correct discourse. A cartoon that calls things what they are from someone's point of view and assumes responsibility for those things is a breath of fresh air in a stale environment (today we rave about Ratatouille with its obnoxious flat clichés!...) I don't want to ruin the gags for anybody, the cartoon is available on youtube (not so good quality though) but I have to mention what I always found extraordinary at many cartoon from that period, the involvement of the audience. The wolf's car features a logo "Der fewer (der better)" brilliant in its simplicity. When the wolf steps outside with a leering face he watches the audience and shows a sign saying "Go ahead and hiss, who cares" a very good representation of Hitlers insolence before the war when he made some despicable acts that he didn't care were going to affect his international reputation.

A brilliant cartoon, wonderfully drawn, with so many gags and subtleties it needs multiple viewing
