Cheap propaganda
9 August 2004 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

Using lots of recycled animation (most obviously from The Band Concert) this Disney wartime cartoon, made for screening in Canadian cinemas, is very unsubtle and is more of a frank advertisement than anything else.

It's yet another one of those shorts that does nothing but promote war bonds 4 for 5. I still have no clue what this means despite seeing half a dozen cartoons like this. And it got boring after the first one. It's amazing people still bought war bonds after being bored by cartoons such as this. I would certainly be spending my hard earned dough on myself instead of war bonds. Though if the cartoons got worse I would just buy the bonds to shut them up in the end.

Disney did some shocking and interesting wartime shorts but this the cheapest and most boring I've seen so far.
