Storyline

A look inside the brain, where we see Emotion (a caveman) ruling the infant, with Reason in the driver's seat for adults most of the time. We're shown the consequences when emotion takes over, and then we see how Hitler has manipulated his populace so that Emotion has put Reason in a concentration camp. Finally, we're exhorted to keep emotion in check to help us win the war, by not paying attention to rumors and getting discouraged with minor setbacks (but still having emotional pride in our country). Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Goofs

When talking about German pride over all others, Hitler says, speaking German, "Germany uber alles!" when the actual German word for "Germany" is "Deutschland". However, this is only a caricature of Hitler, and this 'error' is most likely deliberate. See more »

Excellent short if seen uncut-the edited version is almost worse than nothing at all!

This is one of Disney's best. But as with a handful of other shorts, this one is heavily edited by a Disney Co. skittish about negative images relating to World War II. It should be seen in it's entirety. The editing doesn't do a marvelous short justice. Well worth the trouble to find. Most highly recommended.
