The fowl versions of the Axis Leaders
13 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This WW2 Looney Tune is Black and White and takes place on a farm.

Begins with the birth of a Duck version of Hitler. Then years later he got other ducks and geese to make him leader of his Nazi group.

As well as a goose version Mussolini who also helps out.

Then later one a Japanese Duck resembling Yamamoto comes from the west and does some mischief with Hitler and Mussolini.

The Dove of Hope hates what is happening and tries to use words to settle things, not war.

This cartoon is exactly what happened when WW2 began in a way. Even though in the TV versions the ending is a little rushed, but the version with the ending makes it better to watch.

And just your average banned WW2 cartoon due to the use of the Nazi symbol, Hitler, Mussolini, Yamamoto, and one of the duck soldiers being black and acting like a black person which can be racist to the blacks.
