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.
. . . documentary shorts turns up a lot of repetition. That's partly because the same dozen or so "talking heads" appear in piece after piece after piece. (Once in awhile it would be very refreshing to see some of the more Looney Tunes Americans, such as Mr. Charles Manson or Mr. Donald Trump, on camera recalling exactly how much influence these animated shorts had on their own lives--I would guess that Yosemite Sam was the seminal character for Charlie, though it's really tough to decide whether there's more of Elmer Fudd, Porky Pig, Pepe LePew, or the Tazmanian Devil in Donnie's make-up: Perhaps the Trumpster is a perfect blend of all four of these role models.) Some of these BEHIND THE TUNES are really enlightening, such as the early ones about Michigan J. Frog, Carl Stalling, Treg Brown, and WHAT'S OPERA, DOC? Others fall flat (they're so forgettable that I've virtually forgotten them already.) Fortunately, BOSKO, BUDDY AND THE BEST OF BLACK AND WHITE falls on the two thumbs up side of the ledger.
