Originally called "Donald Duck in Nutzi Land," the title was changed after the success of the song "Der Fuehrer's Face" by Spike Jones and His City Slickers. The song, composed by Oliver Wallace, is a parody of the Nazi anthem, "Horst-Wessel-Lied." See more »

I have been a huge Disney fan for as long as I can remember, not only of their films and shows but also their silly symphonies. Der Fuehrer's Face is one of their best cartoons, and one of my favourite cartoons ever.
The animation is excellent, with great colours and wonderful dark nightmarish images, and the music is also excellent. I loved the jokes and thought they were what lifted the cartoon, for a cartoon that from the title I thought would offend people or cause controversy it is actually outrageously funny not just in the dialogue but especially in the visual gags. Der Fuehrer's Face has a great story too that is relevant and never preachy, I was surprised at how much was fitted in such a short running time, and once again Disney nailed it, and the characters are great fun without falling into caricature. The ending is cute, the voice work is top notch and the pace is never too fast or too slow.
So overall, this cartoon is wonderful. 10/10 Bethany Cox
