During WWII, the US government financed a series of Private Snafu cartoons. Using a wonderful sense of humor, they were able to convey important messages to the troops--and the films were not shown to the general public. You can tell this in a few of the films, as the humor is a bit more adult than you could have gotten away with in theaters. Today, you can find these shorts on DVD as well as for free downloads at archive.org.
I just finished watching an amazingly unfunny and dull Snafu cartoon--"A Few Quick Facts: Inflation". And, since this film also begins with "A Few Quick Fact", I had very low expectations. Sadly, I was right. While you briefly see Private Snafu, there is no humor and it's a very dull film about the flight or fright reflex. That, combined with splashy UPA-style graphics, make this one a hard one to recommend. Pretty dull and un-Snafu-like.
