Two baby squirrels ask grandpa to explain what "men" are when he comes in singing "peace on earth, goodwill to men". Grandpa tells the story of man's last war.
Several of the animators who worked on this anti-war cartoon were veterans of World War One, and had experienced combat similar to that depicted in the film. In a darkly ironic note, they would be working on wartime propaganda cartoons two years later.
It was awful. It was terrible. Why, they fought and they fought and they fought, until... until there was only two of them left.
Grandpa Squirrel: And that was the end of the last man on Earth.
