One of the best Snafu Toons by Chuck Jones!
29 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What's cool about this one is, it's done by Chuck Jones himself.

Even has the same style as other Chuck Jones Animated shorts from the 40s.

Introduces Malaria Mike a mosquito who gives out Malaria once he stings someone.

Throughout the short he tries to sting snafu with his needle.

Has a few gags to it as well.

a good lesson in knowing why it's important to protect yourself from Mosquitoes.

Another good Snafu Cartoon.

Those who are offended by the sight of a guy's but might not like this one.

Cause Snafu's but is shown a lot in this one.
