Daffy-The Com­mando (1943) — Looney Tunes The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

Daffy is a com­mando who para­chutes down into the Ger­man trenches to raise hell. Daffy bedev­ils the Ger­man com­man­der, Von Vul­ture, and his side­kick, lit­tle helmet-with-two-feet Schultz, pro­vid­ing plenty of oppor­tu­ni­ties for anti-Nazi jokes along the way.

After work­ing his mis­chief, Daffy tries to escape in a plane, but is sur­rounded by “a mess of Messer­schmidts” which shoot each other out of the sky after Daffy gets out of the way. Von Vul­ture blows Daffy’s plane to bits with a machine gun, and the com­mando is forced to flee on foot.

He hides in a dark tun­nel, which turns out to be the bar­rel of a long-range can­non. Daffy is shot out of it and lands in Berlin, where Adolf Hitler is shrilly harangu­ing a crowd.

Daffy has the honor of clob­ber­ing the Fuhrer him­self with a mallet.
