Guns. Guns! And more Guns!!
9 August 2004 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Just what were war bonds anyway? I've never actually found out but from the looks of this Disney wartime propaganda cartoon it looks like some sort of bank. How else would we invest in victory?

The cartoon begins with Donald relaxing in his hammock as the radio advertises war bond savings. Donald says he'll do it tomorrow but a little Donald angel pops up and insists he do it today. Then the Donald Devil shows and says 'why not spend that money on yourself?'

But if we lose the war there won't even be a Donald!

Shameless scare tactics indeed. I guess if we didn't all go down to the post office and hand over our green then we would have lost the war huh? The bit at the end saying 'we need more guns, guns, guns' would have modern-day censors going nuts.

The 'good old days' you say?
