Synopsis: Rumors are dangerous.

Comments: Man, I hate it when people talk to me in the latrine. Very Blanc-y Blanc on the "bombing weather". A realistic ear at the beginning of the baloney mill. Tent silhouettes. Seussian wackyland bird. Even seussier thing in bed. Is it meant as a good thing for people to see/hear/know nothing, or a bad thing? I think it means that would be good. Which is unpleasant for a government to encourage, I think.

Eric Golberg's commentary says Virgil Ross is animating part of this. Also Gerry Chiniquy.

Hey, there's also a commentary from Mike Kazaleh on this. He brings up Maurice Noble's involvement. He believes it's Tedd Pierce doing the narration.

I believe SNAFU is the most prevalent character in the year, but I haven't actually checked that, and it's kind of a cheat as they're not theatricals. Donald Duck may also have a claim. At any rate, this is it for SNAFU for the year.

  1. It sounds like Pierce and Maltese as the two guys talking in the tent pictured above.
    Frank Graham is narrating.
