%$#&ing Censors

There's nothing quite like watching Donald Duck report for duty for the Nazis. It's like if you saw Santa Claus hunting reindeer, it really does a number on your childhood memories. Just seeing a swastika on tv now a days is enough to get people rallying outside the studio doors, yet back then you could show Hitler and the Nazis, calling it "Education for Death." The more you see of the animated propaganda from the 20's and 30's, the more you understand why your grandparents would throw in subtle racist comments during family dinners. People complain about censorship, but looking at what cartoons were like with out it might change their minds.
