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."

That's one of the shtick jokes from this wartime jewel. I gave it an 8 out of ten for its one flaw, a screw-up in continuity.
Basically, it's a vehicle for silly slapstick at Hitler's physical expense. Some of the gremlins bear striking resemblances to the gang at Termite Terrace. And where else would you hear "Volga Boatmen" at 8-to-the-bar?
I said there was one flaw, in continuity. There was another flaw - a social one. See, there was one bit at the end I found eye-brow-raising by 1999 standards where Hitler, dazed from his plane crashing on top of him, looks Oriental - read Japanese. You can say, "yeah, it was racist, but it was the 1940s, it was WWII, everyone was like that, &c." But the casual, remorseless, didn't-think-twice-about-it attitude of the joke struck me from beyond the film-frames of this cartoon.
