Highly Recommended, 15 October 2007
Author: TexAveryfan from United States

Good cartoon.

Unlike Lee Eisenberg I won't write irrelevant, completely out of the blue stuff in a review, he wrote something like everyone in his generation firmly believes Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra should be mocked as brutally as possible. Where did this come from? I don't know. Why was it worth including? I have no idea. What on earth leads him to believe that Crosby and Sinatra are today viewed alongside Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini as some of history's greatest dictators? only in Eisenberg's special little mind can this one be answered.

The cartoon itself is highly recommended.The fact that it is able to skillfully blend a great mix of WW2 propaganda together with humorous parody's of contemporary entertainers at the time, All while not looking a bit dated by todays standards and reaming one of the most entertaining Looney Tune cartons and far more entertaining than most cartoons produced today alone earns it a great deal of merit.

8/10 Highly recommended.
