"What's a matter, pal? You seem pertoibed."

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 features a cameo appearance by Bugs Bunny. The focus in this short is on valuing the job you do, even if it isn't glamorous. In this short we also meet Snafu's brothers Tarfu and Fubar, who are also in the service. Technical Fairy, First Class, once again tries to teach Snafu a lesson. When Snafu is complaining about his assigned duty of boot sorting, the Fairy shows him how much worse it could be by letting Snafu see the jobs his brothers have. Good black & white animation. Nice voice work from Mel Blanc. Funny short, even if it's far from the best of the series. My favorite bit was a background gag where a lady pigeon has a photo of a guy pigeon on her wall and its signed "Sincerely, Walter Pigeon."
