"The less said about a sailor's pants, the better."
18 September 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

The final entry in the Private Snafu series of shorts made for use by the U.S. Army during WWII as instructional films for soldiers. This one was intended to introduce a new series for the Navy starring Seaman Tarfu, Private Snafu's brother. The plans were canceled, however, before more were made. The previous Snafu shorts were directed by the Termite Terrace gang over at Warner Bros. Greats like Chuck Jones, Frank Tashlin, Friz Freleng, and Bob Clampett lent their creative hand to making fun, edgy cartoons. This one is directed by Hugh Harman, who was good but didn't have the same kind of style that the WB animators did. So this is a tamer and less interesting entry in the series. Really, it's the worst of the lot. It's still watchable with nice black & white animation but it isn't very funny or racy like the others. Even the recurring joke of a sexy blonde walking by and drawing the sailors' attentions doesn't do much to liven things up.
