An amiable little propaganda short
12 May 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a cute little WWII propaganda film that was made with American servicemen in mind. It is a cute little cartoon that extols the virtue of investing your monthly stipend in war bonds. Since it was not intended to be seen by the general public but only by servicemen, there are two things you'll notice. First, to save money, unlike other Warner Brothers cartoons, this one is in black & white--a money-saving maneuver. Second, as impressionable children wouldn't see it, the jokes are a tad risqué--at least by WWII standards. There are lots of hints at sex--which makes a lot of sense considering the soldiers were no doubt preoccupied with it! The film consists of cute Mr. Hook teaching his fellow sailors not to waste their money gambling but investing in bonds. It does so with a great sense of humor and is quite charming. Well done.
