The very first appearance of Private Snafu, the unwitting best weapon-for the enemy.
9 December 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

The Private Snafu series was composed of training films made by various animators, directors and writers working for the Warner Brothers animation department (I think MGM did a couple, but mostly it was the boys from Termite Terrace) and they revolved around the worst soldier in the Army. The name Snafu is derived from an acronym of the phrase, "Situation Normal-All Fouled Up" (this is the more socially acceptable variant) and quite aptly describes our "hero". This short serves as an introduction to the series, which was shown solely to the troops and is thus more risqué and the content quite often coarser and more colorful, like the standard version of the above-mentioned acronym. Excellent series well worth watching. Most recommended.
