Storyline

Private Snafu wants to tell his sweetheart, Sally Lou, that he thinks his unit will be sent to the South Pacific. But every effort he makes to get his letter through uncensored is thwarted by a resourceful (and unseen) censor with an array of contraptions and booby traps. Not even Snafu's carrier pigeon can avoid the censor -- not when he has a hawk for an assistant. Technical Fairy, First Class, comes to the rescue and agrees to deliver the letter -- but he has good reason to say that he'll hate himself in the morning. Written by J. Spurlin

Be careful what you write
23 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Private Snafu is determine to mail his letter to Sally Lou and tell her what he's been doing in the army.

Only problem is he's unable to pass the censored center. Which they edit out all the Military Secrets that shouldn't be heard in outside the premises.

No matter how many times Snafu tired he just can't manage to send his letter uncensored to his girlfriend. But when all luck seemed lost. Technical Fairy First Class appears and will delivery Snafu's letter uncensored.

But little does Snafu know is that he just made a mistake.

This one has some laughs and the usual Looney Tune gags. Also has a lesson in be careful what you write.
