Snafu spreading rumors about the war.
29 August 2005 | by emasterslakeSee all my reviews

This Snafu short has a lesson not to spread bad rumors about the war.

But knowing Snafu he ends up telling it to one guy then told to another, and another till the whole rumor is spread out in the base.

This short has allot of random stuff to it. Not to mention the large use of talking baloney that say nothing but Rumors. A Horn Bird and Bed Gator that are similar to Dr. Seuss's Animals. And a Smoke being as well.

Snafu gets frighten by all those things. I wouldn't blame him since I too would be creep out if I see Balony talking to me.

It's another good snafu cartoon. Random but good to view.
