Description by

During World War II, the United States Army commissioned the geniuses at "Termite Terrace", Warner Brothers' animation department, to create a series of instructional films for the hordes of incoming draftees. Inspired, they invented "Private Snafu", a clueless G.I. who gave soldiers a perfect example of what not to do. Snafu is, of course, played by "The Man of a Thousand Voices", Mel Blanc. Many of the scripts were provided by famed children's authors P.D. Eastman and Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss). Since these cartoons were not intended for a general audience, they did not have to be submitted to the Production Code Administration, and thus contain swearing, bare butts, and lingerie-clad females. Included are sixteen of these hilarious (and surprisingly racy) shorts.
