"I know what did it, what made the big hole."
25 September 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A fun entry in the Private Snafu series made for use by the US Army during WW2. Directed by Chuck Jones with rhyming dialogue courtesy of Dr. Seuss, this one was actually never released. The story is a simple one about Snafu coming home on leave and running his mouth to everybody that will listen, spilling his guts about things he shouldn't, which ultimately ends in disaster for the military. It's not known for sure why this short was shelved, though its depiction of a secret weapon being used against the Japanese that is similar to the atomic bomb is often suspected to be the main reason. The black & white animation is very nice. The sexy women are a highlight. Mel Blanc's voice work is flawless, as usual. It's a brief but amusing short with a lot of interesting elements.
