We sold too many countries nukes.
25 April 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I quickly interpreted "The High and the Flighty" as an allusion to the incidents in geopolitics when a superpower sells mutually hostile groups the same weapons and plays them off against each other, much like how Daffy Duck sells both Foghorn Leghorn and Barnyard Dog the same kinds of gadgets. A specific example in real life is that the US basically sold India and Pakistan nukes, and they seem to have been threatening each other ever since. "Divide and conquer" some people call it. No surprise that Foghorn and Barnyard eventually wised up to Daffy's shenanigans.

I'm probably reading too far into this cartoon. It was probably just intended as nice, zany entertainment. It sure came out hilarious. So check it out.
