Good, but a bit of a letdown compared to other Snafu films
29 October 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I love the old Pvt. Snafu cartoons, as they are so very subversive yet entertaining and important to the war effort. These films were made by Warner Brothers but were NOT meant to be seen by the general public, but by soldiers and sailors. Because of this, the language was often quite colorful--with swearing and sexual innuendos sprinkled liberally throughout.

This Snafu cartoon was not nearly as exciting as his other toons about booby traps and spies, but it was still pretty entertaining. Snafu starts off the film serving some place like Alaska. He's whining about how tough it is and how easy all the family has it back at home. The rest of the film is all about what he thinks they are are doing AND what they actually are doing to help the war effort. My favorite of these was when he imagined his grandpa at the strip show--pretty hot stuff for 1943! By the way, "Snafu" is taken from a very crude military acronym. I really don't need to explain it further.
