Another entry in the Private Snafu series made for use by the US Army during World War II. This one's directed by Friz Freleng and the message of the short is that soldiers should manage their pay better and not spend it all. This is another of the shorts that feature Technical Fairy 1st Class, who tries to help Snafu save his money but fails, of course. We see Snafu in the Middle East, the Caribbean, and the Arctic. In each locale Snafu finds a way to waste his pay. It's a fun cartoon with some nice animation and good use of music. My favorite portion was probably the Arctic. It's far from the best of the series but enjoyable.
