Looney Tunes' Effort Into WWII
31 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you watched the recent Ken Burns documentaries on World War II, you know how much America - all its citizens and businesses - went to bat in a unified effort to win that war. Well, the makers of the famous Looney Tunes cartoons put in their fair share, too. That is documented in this behind-the-scenes featurette on the Golden Collection Volume Three disc 4 DVD set.

The topics of rationing, blackouts, being drafted, working in a Defense Plant, selling bonds and, of course, actually participating as soldiers were all part of a number of Looney Tunes during the period of the early-to-mid 1940s.

It's pointed out by several historians, critics and directors that some of the cartoons were made just for soldiers, such as "Pvt. Snafu." They believe that this led to much more brassier, bolder and edgier cartoons, that WWII actually helped propel cartoons into their "golden age" by the mid '40s.

Also, writer-producer Paul Dini and others comment how "Bugs Bunny captured the American spirit so clearly."
