Cartoon Network has taken some heat lately for being too P.C., even here on MetaFilter. Well, here's their chance to redeem the network. Sunday evening, 9:00 - 10:00 PM Eastern/Pacific, ToonHeads Goes To War, including four rarely-seen wartime cartoons in their entirety: "Blitz Wolf" where the three little pigs face off against a treaty-breaking, German-speaking wolf; "Scrap Happy Daffy" featuring Daffy promoting the recycling of scrap metal and butting heads with a goat that bears a striking resemblance to Adolf Hitler; "Herr Meets Hare," where Bugs Bunny tangles with Nazi minister Hermann Goering; and in "Russian Rhapsody", a plane full of "gremlins from the Kremlin" attack a bomber piloted by the Nazi leader himself.

"Blitz Wolf" where the three little pigs face off against a treaty-breaking, German-speaking wolf;

hey, the CNN guy should sue.

Except that Cartoon Network is owned by his employer's parent company.


Sounds like a neat program. Thanks for calling my attention to it.

...butting heads with a goat that bears a striking resemblance to Adolf Hitler

That's insensitive and insulting.....to goats. But goats aren't too swift, so I wouldn't sweat it.

Interestingly, the word gremlin was almost unknown before WWII, and then chiefly as the "bugs" in airplanes. That's an expansive use of the term.
