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 »

Propaganda from the war
3 October 2004 | by rbverhoefSee all my reviews

This is a propaganda cartoon made during World War II. The black and white Looney Tunes cartoon tells the story of Hitler, Mussolini and Hirohito only they are portrayed as ducks. The barnyard they are on must present the world. We see how the three take over that barnyard but how one duck ends that. That duck, I guess, must be the United States of America.

The short is nice propaganda and especially the first minute where the Hitler-duck is born is great. After this it is entertaining but to be honest not that great. When the Japanese duck is introduced it gets a little better. Overall it is a nice cartoon and a perfect example of propaganda with this medium.
