A marching band of Germans, Italians, and Japanese march through the streets of swastika-motif Nutziland, serenading "Der Fuehrer's Face." Donald Duck, not living in the region by choice, struggles to make do with disgusting Nazi food rations and then with his day of toil at a Nazi artillery factory. After a nervous breakdown, Donald awakens to find that his experience was in fact a nightmare. Written by David Gerstein <96dag@williams.edu>

This is a remarkable piece of work!
10 October 2001 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This short won an Academy Award and should have! An exceptionally tough cartoon to see, as it's most difficult to find. Disney, with some understandable reluctance, has not made this available. While understandable, I don't agree with the choice they've made here. This cartoon should be seen, it should be widely available and is a big part of the Golden Age of Disney. Qute probably the best theatrical short Disney ever made (certainly the best that I've seen) and it's unfortunate that DIsney has clearly consigned it to the vaults. I fervently hope they change their minds. My highest recommendation here. Worth the trouble to locate and should be in print!!!
