This was a series of shorts made for United States soldiers during World War II which covered various topics ranging from voting for servicemen to describing the enemies of the soldiers. Several of the shorts featured Private Snafu (voiced by Mel Blanc), who appeared in his own series of shorts released at around the same time and made for the same audience. Unlike Snafu's shorts, these were handled by various animation studios, including MGM, UPA, and even Disney, while Snafu's shorts were handled by Warner Bros.
