Hell, I'm still laughing over the fact that there's something called "Man Cave Daily."

I did Nazi this one coming
 
2012-09-06 03:29:05 PM  
If the first three appear, then the fourth had BETTER appear.

It's a small world after all.

"Destino" is an awesome thing.

I found Disney's menstruating nazi cartoon to be surreal.
 
2012-09-06 03:36:23 PM  
Sounds like a great Dada art piece, though.

/drtfa, how close did I get?

::gets to the bottom::

"has written on cracked..."

Badly written, not funny, blah blah

The thing turns into a fetishistic cult chant that's more fitting at a cross burning than a cartoon featuring Donald Duck. Factories churn out scorching orange bullets. Molten metal forms to make battleship canons. Japanese battleships explode and sink. A graveyard of downed and decimated Nazi planes.

At a certain point you almost expect the voice over to break down and reveal itself to be a sketch that ends with the voice over actor losing his mind and having to be dragged out and drugged. The guy sounds like he had a serious murder erection destroying the inner-lining of his pants.


If blowing up Nazis is wrong, I don't wanna be right.
 
2012-09-06 03:37:06 PM  
I don't know I think the last one justifies the first three.
 
2012-09-06 03:37:21 PM  
can I add two more?

Clown and break-in

As part of my Surrealism course in college, we went on a field trip to Disney but I was laid up by menstruation pains and missed the tug of war contest with the grammar nazis.

How is it possible for anybody who has frequented the internets for more than a few years to not know about these cartoons (especially after YouTube went on-line in 2005)? I actually knew about these cartoons along with the other animated WWII-era propaganda shorts turned out by Warner Brothers and MGM years before the internet (but, then again, I'm an old fart). The Warner Brothers and MGM ones in particular used to be part of the daily afternoon rotation of cartoons shown on TV to generations of kids born decades after the end of the war.

when Walt was alive the first two were probably together quite often.
 
2012-09-06 03:42:37 PM  
The first three imply the fourth. In fact it would be worse without 'surrealism'.
 
2012-09-06 03:44:26 PM  
Really? The author thinks that Walt Disney wrote a story about menstruation? Does he not realize that this was based on a fairy tale written a long, long time ago?

/sigh...

Rule 34 subby.

I think I've seen them both, along with the Hitler Youth one. There are a bunch that I watched as a kid growing up in the 70's that had WWII propaganda in them, 'Buy War Bonds!', 'Raise a Victory Garden!', etc., most of them being Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons, but I seem to remember these Disney ones.

Did you not read TFA? Hestates that it was basically a giant Kotex ad.

In 1946, Walt Disney was commissioned by Kotex to produce a short film explaining menstruation to students in health classes all around the country. In all, around 105 million students watched this film in class. That all sounds nice and benevolent, but keep in mind this was essentially a 10-minute long corporate advertisement.

The article is about my first marriage?
 
2012-09-06 04:19:41 PM  
I think the only thing worse than the movie about menstruation was having to sit in a class of junior high aged girls and being forced to watch it.
 
2012-09-06 04:33:42 PM  
HAVE to check Destino as soon as I can...

/Love Disney, love Dalí's work...

Long before Wolfenstein 3-D, Disney had this Battlesuit Hitler thing stitched up

Uh, that's called a suit of armor.

When the subject of propaganda is brought up most like to forget that America was not exempt. We produced our very own slate of brainwashing silliness that made war seem like the hippest, coolest fad out there.

Past tense? Try again.
 
2012-09-06 05:44:47 PM  
I found the two Donald Duck propaganda ones funny, and the third propaganda toon bone chilling.

I'm afraid to watch the menstration toon, mainly because I doubt the boss would like it... Has anybody watched it yet?

Just great work there on your webpage, post a bunch of 6 minute plus cartoons on a page that auto refreshes every 5 minutes. What a super idea!

From subby's description, I was expecting an article about either Dalí or Cory Doctorow.

Dali did the key frames himself over the course of several months working at Disney's studio (a number of them are shown as part of the closing credits) so it seems more like an adaptation of themes he used in his work a lot. If he's imitating, he's imitating himself.

I'm surprised they didn't mention the 1943 Disney film "The Winged Scourge". Any movie that has the Seven Dwarves spraying DDT on anything that moves and pouring toxic chemicals into the water has a fairly high WTF factor.

From reading it, apparently Man-Child Cave was taken.

I just watched it again for the first time in years. Who's the Disney animator who drew all the nymphs - Fred Moore? I think he did the animation here.
