The goal of this blog is to help people identify the many wonderful (and then not so wonderful) animators from the Golden Age of cartoons. Check back every day for more fun!

I love the Private Snafu cartoons Warners made during WWII, and I feel that the very best of them, "Spies" (1943, Jones) and "Fighting Tools" (1943, Clampett), are among the best cartoons the studio ever did.
I think everyone knows by now what Bob McKimson and Rod Scribner's animation looks like, so it's not necessary to point them out. It may have just been done by both of them, as these are only half the length of an average short released to civilians. I'm certain Ted Geisel worked on the story of this cartoon as well.
Oh and a warning: The ending may not necessarily be in, um, good taste to some people.
