Disney’s Der Fuehrer

December 15, 2009

Did you know that Disney produced pro-America, anti-Nazi propaganda during WWII?  I certainly didn’t.

I was listening to Casey Kasem’s Top 40 Eighties flashback (yes … I am old).  While introducing a Christmas song, “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth”, he mentioned that the composer Spike Jones also wrote the song “Der Fuehrer’s Face”.  Pardon?  It was hilarious so I looked for more information.

The song was part of a Disney film called Donald Duck in Nutzi Land“.
Can you even imagine Disney doing a blatantly pro-American film today?
