Did You Know?


This was to have been the first of a series of instructional short cartoons for the US Navy after the success of similar military cartoons featuring the character "Private Snafu", but the end of WW2 (and the Allied victory) brought the production of these films to an abrupt end. See more »

Finally Private Snafu Cartoon with Tarfu.
2 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This cartoon focuses on Snafu's brother, Tarfu.

It shows the basics of the Navy. The conditions and uniforms of it too.

Contains a few gags here and there. The Narrator does more talking than Tarfu does in this short.

It's just like the other Snafu toons even though Snafu isn't in it.

This is in fact the final Snafu cartoon that's ever been made. No other one has been made for 60 years.

They were original going to release more but they didn't due to the end of WW2.

I recommend this to those who do enjoy Snafu toons.
