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

Intriguing and of very good quality
4 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not one of the masterpieces of animation, neither did it need to be and nor did it try to. Censored is still very good as a cartoon and has degrees of interest too. The first half is funnier than the second with slightly better timing, and the it's-only-a-dream ending may leave one feel cheated(unless it's necessary this viewer has never been a fan of this type of ending anyway so there may be a little bias). The animation is excellent though, everything is beautifully drawn and the colour shadings are crisp and expressive, while the music is catchy and characterful as well as appropriately orchestrated. The humour and gags are a lot of fun, for the time also quite daring, you have to love Snafu's facial expressions and the part with the electric eye. Censored has a good and important lesson of being careful what you write that makes its point without being preachy, and is interesting for the scantily clad and somewhat erotic character of Sally Lou as well. Snafu is very endearing even when being the worst ever soldier. Mel Blanc as always does stellar vocals, the Japanese communications are indeed stereotypical but Blanc does also make them rather amusing to hear. Overall, very good quality stuff and of good interest value. 8/10 Bethany Cox
