During WWII, the US government financed a series of Private Snafu cartoons. Using a wonderful sense of humor, they were able to convey important messages to the troops--and the films were not shown to the general public. You can tell this in a few of the films, as the humor is a bit more adult than you could have gotten away with in theaters. Today, you can find these shorts on DVD as well as for free downloads at

This installment of Private Snafu is about the importance of saving your pay. Snafu has lots of great plans--a home, a baby, a wife, a new car--and you see him imagining them all. However, as usual, Snafu is also an idiot. And, as he blows his money, you see items disappear from his dream. All the while, his fairy godfather tries to help, but Snafu is determined to act without thinking. The film gets the point across well, though it's not as silly or funny as usual. Decent and watchable but far from the crazy stuff that make some of the Snafu cartoons wonderful.
