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.

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.
In this film, you see a lot of Private Snafu! As the film begins, he's swimming naked in the jungle--making him a prime candidate to get bitten by the main character, a malaria-carrying mosquito. However, throughout the cartoon, Snafu keeps getting lucky and it looks like he might just make it. But, considering it's Snafu, you can pretty much guess what will happen next.
This cartoon is quite educational but funny. While not among the very best (such as SPIES and BOOBY TRAPS), it is one of the better films in the series.
