Trivia

The "Daily Sentinel" newspaper with the headline "Battle Reports Prove U.S. Soldier Best Armed in World" is an altered version of the Chicago Sunday Tribune for November 1, 1942. The same issue of that newspaper was used as a model for the newspaper in Tortoise Wins by a Hare (1943), with both cartoons inserting a small subheadline reading "Adolph Hitler Commits Suicide."

Another great Snafu Cartoon
29 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one is has to do with War Weapons for the US.

Snafu is all singing and saying with all these good weapons to use he'll be a hero by defeating any German soldier who comes near him.

And with out notice one German soldier comes near him but Snafu uses one of his weapons to surprise him.

This one has singing in it through out the whole short.

Has plenty of gags.

Good stuff and Humor.

Just as good as the "spies" short. Those who like Snafu will like this one.
