Most prints of this cartoon remove the final scene in which the solider on a War Bonds poster leaps from his wall and shoots at the Ducktators. We then see the Dove of Peace at home telling the story to his grandchildren...with the heads of the three Ducktators mounted above his fireplace. A "Buy War Bonds" title card is shown to end the cartoon. See more »
Not the funniest Looney Toons film, but certainly one of the most educational
This cartoon from 1942 is a cute way to discuss the evil menace of the Axis Powers. Hitler, Mussolini and a Japanese duck run amok in the farm yard spreading lies and bullying the other animals. Finally, the others who only wanted peace have had enough and proceed to whip the annoying three. This is a wonderful positive propaganda piece that was designed to solidify everyone behind the war effort and poke fun at the Fascists. While occasionally the cartoon lags and there is a joke about Black Southern ducks that might offend some, the cartoon is overall very well made and effective--possessing the usual high production values in Looney Toons cartoons.
FYI--Although the Hitler duck was said to have been a "paper hanger", this is a common mistaken belief about Hitler. There is no evidence that he ever made a living wallpapering.
