Jug band Propaganda short, a snapshot of wartime American opinions
26 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Any fan of Spike Jones and the washboard and jug band genre of music will love my all time favorite short cartoon , sadly no longer readily available.

Down in an Appalachian "holler" with flora and fauna moving to the syncopated beat, the country folk have it made in a stereotypical hillbilly heaven. The lazy barnyard animals', lazier hound dogs', and laziest mountaineers' greatest problem in life are Mirandy's concrete like, tooth threatening biscuits. At first perceived as a problem to be dealt with on the sly so as to not incur Mirandy's wrath, it soon becomes evident that Mirandy's biscuits make her the hero of the hour, since it is turns out Mirandy's biscuits are so hard they are used as makeshift ammunition when Japanese bombers are sighted overhead, flown by the stereotypically, overly toothsome Japanese pilots

Since song and short were propaganda during WWII, they are VERY politically incorrect, but were still being shown on children's TV cartoon shows throughout the fifties.
