Snafu Goes Home
7 September 2015 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Going Home (1944)

*** (out of 4)

This War Department short warns soldiers of the dangers of going home and running their mouths. Private Snafu gets to go home where he begins talking to anyone who will listen to him. He talks about certainly classified material and before you know it several American soldiers are dead. GOING HOME is one of the better entries in the series as it's highly entertaining on a number of levels including the fact that there's some adult material here. Just check out the dame in the theater who Snafu runs his mouth to. The sexual innuendo with her rather large boobs was obviously something that general audiences at the time wouldn't have been able to see. Once again the animation is extremely good and especially one scene where we see Japan get leveled. Fans of the series are certainly going to enjoy the humor as well as the dark ending.
