Here are some old propaganda films
“At the start of WWII, Disney studios began creating what amounted to pure propaganda. The results were shorts like Donald Gets Drafted, Education for Death, and the enduring gem Der Fuehrer’s Face in which a swastika-donning Donald Duck is forced by a strangle effeminate Nazi flautist to make ammunition while frenziedly saluting Adolph Hitler.” – From The Missing Disney Animated Film

“Private Snafu is the title character of a series of black-and-white American instructional cartoon shorts produced between 1943 and 1945 during World War II. The character was created by director Frank Capra, chairman of the U.S. Army Air Force First Motion Picture Unit, and some of the shorts were written by Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel. Although the United States Army gave Walt Disney Studios the first crack at creating the cartoons, Leon Schlesinger of the Warner Bros. animation studio underbid Disney by two-thirds and won the contract. Disney had also demanded exclusive ownership of the character, and merchandising rights.” From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_Snafu
“The Snafu shorts are notable because they were produced during the Golden Age of Warner Bros. animation. Directors such as Chuck Jones, Friz Freleng, Bob Clampett, and Frank Tashlin worked on them, and their characteristic styles are in top form. P. D. Eastman was a writer and storyboard artist for the Snafu shorts. Voice characterizations were provided by the celebrated Mel Blanc (Private Snafu’s voice was similar to Blanc’s Bugs Bunny characterization, and Bugs himself actually made a cameo in the Snafu episode Gas). ” From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_Snafu
