"If Snafu can make it, by gosh so can I!"
12 August 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Another fun entry in the Private Snafu series made for use by the US Army during World War II. This one's directed by Frank Tashlin and focuses on wasting food. It's a pretty interesting cartoon. First, it's narrated by a bull. He tells the story of how, on his honeymoon with his new bride, the news comes that the US has entered the war. So the brave bull decides to make the ultimate sacrifice and be turned into food for the soldiers. Already we're dealing with an amazing concept for a cartoon, but it gets better. So the bull becomes part of some kind of canned food and is sent to the battlefront, where Private Snafu promptly makes an ass of himself by eating only some of the food and letting the rest go to waste. So the bull's ghost goes ballistic, kicks the crap out of Snafu, and lets us know what he thinks of his wasted sacrifice. I like this series and shorts like this are a good example of why. It's just so bizarre and creative in a way you didn't see that much in mainstream cartoons of the time. Plus it has a good message and nice animation. It's not my favorite of the series but I like it a lot.
