Private Snafu has a secret: his ship leaves for Africa at 4:30. He's determined to keep it, but bit by bit it slips out, and eventually, the details end up right on Hitler's desk and the ship is engaged.
most of what I learned was about what the directors had to direct
OK, so Chuck Jones's "One Froggy Evening" may be the most famous one-shot cartoon ever to come out of Warner Bros. Probably the most interesting thing that I learned from "Behind the Tunes: It Hopped One Night - A Look at 'One Froggy Evening'" was about the number of cartoons that each director had to direct. Each director had to direct a certain number of shorts starring Bugs, Daffy and Porky, then they got to direct a couple starring their own characters (Chuck Jones had The Three Bears, Pepe Le Pew, Marvin the Martian and Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote; Friz Freleng had Sylvester/Tweety, Yosemite Sam and Speedy Gonzales; Robert McKimson had Foghorn Leghorn, Hippety Hopper and Tasmanian Devil), and then they got to direct one or two extra ones. So, Chuck Jones used this opportunity to create one of the most impressive shorts that I've ever seen. As for the documentary itself, it was OK otherwise, but I still say that the info about each director's requirement was the most eye-opening part.
