Comments: Nice title card, but the black letters under white outlines seem strange. Donald is no longer in the army, but is on the home front. Are Huey, Dewey and Louie's hats some sort of 19th century or earlier European gear? Panoply of period guns in the makeshift anti aircraft. Should civilians have been making decisions on whether to shoot at aircraft at home? I wonder why they don't show the swords being broken (unless it's a cut gag about Don's leg getting mangled). Is there an explanation for Donald's one fist straight one fist moving technique?
Four cartoons released this day; pretty busy. For the holidays?
