The Most Horrific Film I've Ever Seen
5 April 2001 | by (Nashville, TN) – See all my reviews

I'll keep it simple. This is a portrayal of one of the cutest children in all of Disney as he is educated to hate and death by Nazi propaganda. Effectively bone chilling, this hateful cartoon served its purpose to motivate Americans to consider their moral superiority gleaned from a free education system.
