"Ask us ANYTHING!!"
I recently downloaded an old cartoon from, I'm
assuming either the 1930's or the 1940's, because it is Daffy Duck
fighting in a war against Hitler and the Nazis. In the description
for this cartoon, it says that it was banned in the U.S. at the time
of it's release, and it says that the official title of the cartoon
is "Daffy Duck the Commando". Can you tell me more information on
this cartoon, and whether or not it was actually banned?
Well after receiving this question and telling
Shaun about it he started mumbling something about it but then TB
came to the rescue and gave us the answer!
Daffy- The Commando is about 7 minutes
long and was originally released in 1943. Many wartime cartoons had
a strong, propaganda bias and this one is a good example. These
cartoons, for the most part, were considered offensive for some
parody / exaggeration of certain aspects of various races, and
provide and interesting insight into the way people thought back
