Angel & Devil On His Shoulder
12 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This wartime animated short tells of the value of a person holding onto their War Bonds.

Navy seaman "Mr. Hook" is minding his own business in his bunk aboard ship with a little devil wakes him up and asks why he's wasting his money holding onto the bonds. He should cash them and have a good time. Well, the "angel" pops up, tells Mr. Hook what nonsense that is, and the two little imaginary "voices" begin duking it out. A speech from the victor follows.

This is one of those WWII messages produced by the U.S. Navy. You know it had a lot more meaning back then; now it's a little piece of history or maybe nostalgia for some who can remember this kind of cartoon message. I saw it as one of the added features on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Five DVD set.
