Alternate Versions

Most prints of this cartoon remove the final scene in which the solider on a War Bonds poster leaps from his wall and shoots at the Ducktators. We then see the Dove of Peace at home telling the story to his grandchildren...with the heads of the three Ducktators mounted above his fireplace. A "Buy War Bonds" title card is shown to end the cartoon. See more »

WWII propaganda piece
10 June 2004 | by TheOtherFoolSee all my reviews

World War II cartoon spoofing Adolf Hitler and his companions. One day, a duck is born in an animal town, and when it comes out of the egg it immediately resembles Hitler, mustache and all. His first words: Sieg Heil!

Also introduced is Mussolini as a gullible goose before the film turns a bit more serious with a peace dove wondering what has happened to his town ('have they forgot it's love that's bright, and not is gained by show of might'). I love it when 'Hitler' uses the shredder on 'sacred pledges'; the 'treaty tearer upper'. It reminds me of Seinfeld language :)

The peace dove can't take it no more in the end and decides to kick some German, Italian and Japanese butt. The ending is somewhat abrupt and the film sometimes a bit lame ('we wish to apologize to the nice ducks and geese in the audience') but overall a pretty good cartoon. Interesting to watch as a time piece: 7/10.
