Trivia

This movie stands as a testament to the rapid rise in popularity of Bugs Bunny. Only a year and a half earlier, Bugs had been introduced to the public in A Wild Hare (1940) and already the Treasury Department had commissioned a special Bugs film to sell war bonds. See more »

It did in fact apply during WWII
28 January 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

With the horrors of the Vietnam War and the disaster that is the Iraq War, it may be surprising that cartoons proudly promoted war. But "Any Bonds Today?" does just that, as Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig and a portly Elmer Fudd (strangely, no Daffy Duck) sing a song encouraging the American people to buy war bonds to support US participation in World War II.

I will say that although I would never want to join the army, it is fairly interesting to see Bugs, Porky and Elmer (why no Daffy?) singing about WWII, even if it is propaganda. Of course, if you're expecting them to do their usual Looney Tunes stuff, you'll get mighty disappointed. This cartoon is strictly about the war effort (other cartoons had them do crazy things to the Axis leaders). And knowing that at least some good things resulted from WWII, I guess that justifies this cartoon.

So if nothing else, it's worth seeing as a historical reference.
