In time of war, it's typical,

sometimes even useful,

to demonize your enemy.

We still see this today,

whenever a dictator or despot

comes to power anywhere in the world.

Caricatures and jokes,

not always in the best of taste,

rise to the forefront because it's our way

of relieving aggression.

So it was in World War ll.

Some people feared Adolf Hitler.

Others mocked him.

The Disney staff came up with the idea for

a cartoon to be titled,

Donald Duck in Nutzi Land.

Giving the All-American duck a nightmare

that he was living

in a country run by Nazis.

The title changed when a song

written for the cartoon

by Oliver Wallace became a runaway hit,

in a now classic recording

by Spike Jones.

It then became essential

to change the name of the cartoon

to Der Fuehrer's Face.

It's easy to see

why the film was so popular.

It's very, very funny.

Reducing the serious tenets

of Hitler's Nazism

to slapstick absurdities.

And it gave audiences a chance to think,

as Donald does, about the freedoms

they might have taken for granted.

Am I glad to be a citizen

of the United States of America!

Der Fuehrer's Face, directed

by Jack Kinney, won the Academy Award

as Best Animated Short Subject of 1943.
