Warner Bros. Propaganda- 1942

This video produced in 1942 by Warner Bros and was used as  a form of propaganda on the home front. What better way to get a message across that the Nazis are peace trampling nit wits than through a cartoon. Its obvious the pro American sentiment as well as the racist depiction of the Axis leaders. If by the end of the video you had any doubt the purpose behind the video the bit about buying war bonds in order to win the war demonstrates the feelings of pro America and the justness of the war. This video was aimed at the people on the home front, those going to the move theaters in order to get the news of the war and/or entertainment. It’d be interesting to see what kind of memories people had about these cartoons and whether or not they were seen more as entertainment or advertisement.
