Kinda creepy, 14 May 2009
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida
The Private Snafu films were clearly made to be seen by soldiers and
not by the general public. Their point was to illustrate important
messages to the troops in a humorous manner. In this case, the film is
about the importance of not wasting food--though the film didn't turn
out to that funny and was actually pretty creepy.
The film begins with a couple of cows falling in love. However, the war arrives and the male cow decides to sacrifice himself for the war effort. So, the cute cow is made into canned meat for the soldiers! However, Snafu is his usual idiotic self and he wastes the food--not appreciating that food is precious.
As I said, this seemed creepy. The idea of the cow's ghost standing there and proudly waiting to see his flesh get eaten must have seemed clever in 1944, but now it seems more like a recruiting film for PETA! Not among the best in the series, that's for sure.

Don't waist food!, 7 December 2006
Author: emasterslake from United States
A bull was about to live a settle life with a cow, till war occurred
and Snafu was drafted to fight in the war. The bull realizes that the
Snafu needs food in order to prevent hunger while fighting in the war.
So the Bull turns himself in to the slaughterhouse and his meat was canned and shipped to Snafu's Army Corp. But will Snafu eat the meat of the Bull he gave his own life away for a soldier? I won't give away on what the ending is like, but just know that this short has a simple lesson in not to waist food. Which gives Soldiers the idea to eat small and not too much.
This one has some usual gags. As well as some humor expected in all Snafu cartoons. Another WW2 short to check out.
