Another "We're All in this Together" propaganda short.
5 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

This half-reel cartoon was produced by the Walt Disney organization to tout the importance of farming in the war effort -- if we don't eat, we can't fight very well -- and to offer us some unlikely images to underline how prolific American farms were: enough corn to stretch from London to Istanbul, enough milk to make a cheese about the tenth the size of the moon, and other fanciful images, sure to amuse as well as inform.

The animation involved is minimal. It looks fairly obvious that this was produced at high speed and minimal expense. There's a war on, you know! Now, go raise some wheat.
