Very different from the typical Snafu film...
planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

The Private Snafu films were clearly made to be seen by soldiers and
not by the general public. The dirty jokes, sexual innuendos and
language is relatively tame today but never would have been allowed in
the regular theaters due to the Production Code. But, such off-color
remarks went over very well with the enlisted men and helped to
illustrate important information in a humorous and memorable fashion.
This Snafu film is quite different from the rest in style and
characterization. Here, Snafu is NOT an idiot and it consists of a more
mature Snafu landing on a lonely island in the Pacific. At the same
time, a very stereotypical Japanese officer arrives and they fight it
out almost like Bugs and Yosimite Sam having a scrap. Very enjoyable
but more like a mass-consumption cartoon and with a little less of an
edge than usual--though the end is rather dark in spirit. Still, it's
quite enjoyable and worth finding.
