Snafu's family at home.
23 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Snafu is disliking the weather at the military campgrounds. He starts to picture how much fun his family and girlfriend are having back home. And not knowing how bad the war is.

Until Technical Fairy First Class appears and show Snafu what his Dad, Mom, Grandpa, and girlfriend are doing back home.

This Snafu short has references to the War jobs that are offered during WW2. Including Tank plants, Victory Gardens, Ship Building and W.A.C. It points out that the Soldiers aren't alone in the war as there's a lot of support back home for them to win the war.

It's another good Snafu short. Has some jokes here and there. And a small scene that shows Snafu's vision of his Girlfriend going out with a taller more handsome guy who stares at her breasts when he says "What large eyes you have" Which is the only mature theme you'd see in this short.
