An Instance Of Never Letting The Worst Of Any Bad Situation Overcome You.
As the title of my review of this reads and suggests, this is just the point that explains it. This is one of my favorite animated shorts of not only Disney and wartime (even though there's only a slight wartime reference in it all all), but of the golden era of animation and in general. A vivid exemplification and manifestation of what can happen when one jumps to conclusions and lets the worst thing get the best of him/her, in the form of two tiny people inside one's mind who control it. Sentiment must never dominate sensibility and they both must work in conjunction and equally in order to lessen the problems, predicaments, and troubles that may arise later. That's the message of why the rationalism half is so important. Concerning the aforementioned one dominating the other, this can be applied to the male Reason and Emotion in the mind of a listener in the audience at Hitler's speech. Basically, one should never let the worst circumstances get the best of him or her. Then, there's also resisting the temptation of overindulging, as in the case of the female counterparts of Reason and Emotion, who occupied the mind of a lady who gained weight feasting too much in a diner, thanks to the female Emotion's ineluctable appetite. These lessons are not only very useful in preparing for combat, but also in everyday life. Anyway, this is both a fun and interesting cartoon, and I enjoyed it very much, very well done and accomplished in explaining how those parts of mentality can either work with or against you, especially without wisdom. Love the concept.
