Der Fuehrer’s Face (1943) — Don­ald Duck Theatrical

CotD: Both a car­toon and a song, “Der Fuehrer’s Face” does the impos­si­ble– it makes Hitler and Nazis funny (but only in Donald’s world).

Der Fuehrer’s Face (1943) — Don­ald Duck The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

This short places Don­ald as a worker dream­ing of free­dom dur­ing the golden age of Nazi Ger­many. A Ger­man “oom-pah” band parades through town extolling the “virtues” of the Fuehrer with the title song. They awaken Don­ald Duck, who has to go to work in a Nazi muni­tions fac­tory, much to his regret.

Luck­ily in the end, after a fran­tic work­day try­ing to alter­nate between mak­ing bombs and salut­ing Hitler, he finds that it has all been a night­mare and that he is still liv­ing in the good old U.S.A.
