"So cold it would freeze the nuts off a jeep."
25 September 2015 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Private Snafu is dealing with the miserable cold and grousing that his family back home is probably living it up without a care in the world. The Technical Fairy, First Class shows up to let Snafu see how wrong he is and we see that his family and girlfriend are working hard contributing to the war effort at home. A fun entry in the Snafu series of shorts made for use by the US Army during WW2. Because they didn't have to pass the Production Code, these shorts often had more racy humor and images than other cartoons from the period. Highlights of this one include Snafu's grandfather watching strippers and a horse making manure jokes. The black & white animation is nice. The voice work from Mel Blanc is wonderful. It's not the best Snafu short but it is very enjoyable.
