Storyline

Gandy Goose is helping test artillery by putting an apple on his head (to a swinging version of the William Tell Overture). The first shell is spot on. He backs up against a tree, and this shell comes in low, sending Gandy through a whole line of trees. The "dud" explodes, and sends both Gandy and his sergeant rocketing into the air. They land in a haystack; when all the insects greet them with "Heil", they figure out they're in Germany, conveniently near a piglike Hitler and his monkey, Mussolini. Our heroes cause mischief, first by lighting a map Hitler holding on fire, then by using a slingshot to hit Mussolini with a rock. They open fire, and Hitler ducks behind his desk to fire back with cannons. The continued attack sends the dictators to the elevator, and our heroes follow in the next car (down, up, and sideways).

Terrytoons turns out a propaganda short in which Gandy Goose and Sourpuss join the army, and wind up in Berchtesgarten, where they meet up with Hitler -- in this iteration, a pig -- and Mussolini -- a monkey.

The cartoon is pitched at Terry's usual audience of very young children and the gags are, as might be expected, extremely violent, but this was the norm for the era and given the year of this cartoon, it lacks the usual overt racism of the propaganda cartoons of the War years -- the only villains we see are the two Axis leaders. Indeed, there are just four characters in the cartoon and they shoot freely at each other.

Because this is the sort of Terrytoons that is aimed at three-year-olds and because of the usual cheating to save money -- notice the length and repetition of the elevator sequence -- this rates as subpar.
