Why is the Chicken in Charge of the Home Guard?
3 March 2015 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Gandy Goose is out seeding his farm when the Home Guard marches by with their Zouave uniforms and martial music. Gandy decides to join them. However, while he is being drilled, the buzzards snicker and attack in this entertaining Terrytoon.

The United States was already preparing for the Second World War and Paul Terry's cartoon factory welcomed it. It would permit them to do service comedies that would stretch their abilities. While most of the cartoon studios would do war films, Gandy Goose and Sourpuss would appear in a lot of them in numerous branches of the armed forces. These would mark the creative high point of the Terry studio before Mighty Mouse, post-war inflation and falling attendance started to turn the screws.
