There are several current "pop culture" references in this cartoon, including: "I'm only three and a half years old" - radio catch phrase of Lou Costello; "How do you do?" - catch phrase of Bert Gordon's radio character, "The Mad Russian"; and "Nazis is the cwaziest people" - a rephrasing of Lew Lehr's Fox Movietone News catchphrase, "Monkeys is the cwaziest people."

Gremlins beat the crap out of Furher.
22 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hitler is furious with the Soviet Union that he wants to bomb Moscow all by himself.

So he flies from Berlin to Moscow by airplane. But little does he know is that little invaders are taring his plane apart. And those invaders are Gremlins from the Kremlin!.

These little guys sing and tor mechanical stuff apart with pleasure.

And they even pull a few pranks on Hitler himself.

Will these Gremlins be able to prevent Hitler from bombing Moscow? Well you try to guess that when you see this cartoon.

This cartoon was originally titled "Gremlins from the Kremlim" but due to Disney and Warner Bros both wanting to do their own cartoon about Gremlins. They had to change the title that doesn't have the word Gremlin in it.

It's a good WW2 short. Also be on the look out for 9 Gremlins that resemble the producers, writers, and creators behind the Looney Tunes.

Good luck in finding this short by internet search cause it's hard to tell when it'll ever be released on DVD.
