This collection of World War II-era shorts is the long-awaited companion to “Cartoons for Victory,” our previous set of rare WWII propaganda animated shorts produced in the United States and around the world. This new collection features the “A Few Quick Facts” series produced for the Army-Navy Screen Magazine. We’ve also included animation from Nazi Germany and fascist Italy. Many of the films have been transferred from original master materials at the US National Archives; most have never been available to the general public in any format!

Update: I found the subtitles but they just showed how boring the foreign cartoons were. The U.S. Cartoons can be found elsewhere, i.e., "Private Snafu" which I already had so I find this collection marginally interesting, at best.
More Cartoons for Victory contains historical artifacts which are not necessarily appropriate (or entertaining) for children without context. There are a great deal of racial stereotypes here, which is part of what makes this set so fascinating. Mr. Churkill offers the Italian perspective of Great Britain's leader, which depicts Churchill as a money-hungry monster who is stopped by the heroic Nazis. A seemingly innocent German cartoon about a coniferous tree who pines to grow leaves shows a Jew greedily stealing the golden leaves. The American Tokio Jokio depicts familiar puns from Warner Brothers studios but is rife with Japanese stereotypes. In addition to entertainment, this set includes informational shorts and propaganda. A Few Quick Facts series was created to disseminate information to the troops and covers a variety of topics from fear to diarrhea. These aren't just traditional animated cartoons either. There are still image stories and films mixed with live action footage.
