    This video has been a passion project of mine for the last few months. I am a huge fan of history and it was great to be able to combine that with animation. Private Snafu is truly one of the most unique cartoon series I have ever seen and I hope you all enjoy it!

    Oh man! I remember when they aired this on Cartoon Network along with other “adult” shorts. I believe it was the one where Snafu had to keep a secret.

    Concerning the video on Disney remakes and the retarded comment a lot of idiot adults think that cartoons are for CHILDREN, I want to add: People used cartoons to draw and simulate PORN and EROTICA long before it became associated with being "just for kids."
    Private SNAFU is a GREAT example. So is the Wolf from Red Hot Riding Hood.

    I pretty much went on a snafu marathon after watching this video. I loved that they were educational but not blatant about it, they balanced comedy and informative stuff really well (which many educational shows struggle with) but o o f those japanese scenes

    Hey Saberspark
    The ads in your videos are timed quite badly, you should look into it as I'm sure, somehow you can designate when the ads come. Put one or two break points in the video and set those as ad breaks, it looks a lot more professional and isn't as jarring, this hurts the enjoyability of your content.
    otherwise, love your stuff, especially Over the Garden Wall, I watched it and gahd dayum that is a great series.

    As intriguing it is to watching these old cartoons, there’s also a sense of tragedy, as these cartoons were probably the last thing some soldiers would see before their heads would get blown off by some high caliber rifle, get obliterated by an explosive, or have their bodies shredded by a machine gun turret.

    Private Snafu is a WWII cartoon series that was specifically made to train American soldiers and was not available to the public. It is absolutely wild and one of the most unique cartoon series ever made

    You know it's funny you mentioned malaria. I think my grandpa mentioned ether getting it at one point during WW2 when he was in New Guinea or at the very least telling me what him and the troops had to do to avoid it while being stationed on the island against the Japanese. I wonder if he ever saw this cartoon. It's a shame I never got to ask him.
