I am looking for a 'toon from the early-mid 40's. Family of squirrels or chipmunks, grandpa telling story of a war. They live in a helmet. Near the finish, a hand is shown in defiant agony, slowly sinking into the ground. Any ideas? Thank you.

The cartoon is 'Peace On Earth', a Hugh Harman cartoon from MGM, and an absolute gem. Made in 1939, too bad it didn't help.

The hand of the last man alive, sinking into the mud, comes not at the end of the cartoon, but at the end of Grandpa's story, at about 5:30.

Here's the link:
