Daffy joins the military as a commando
25 October 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is a marvelous little bit of propaganda using Daffy to help lampoon the enemy, in this case the Nazis. I think my favorite bit is Daffy singing as he parachutes down, although the ending is a close second. Something I find myself wondering when I see this cartoon (which probably means I have way too much time on my hands) is whether the writers on the film Stalag 17 decided to name the guard in their film Schultz after this cartoon's Schultz and if, in turn, Schultz in Hogan's Heros was named after the guard in the film. My, such grand philosophical questions I ponder! Great short and most definitely worth seeking out. Most highly recommended.
