Entertaining Entry in the Series
Gripes (1943)

*** (out of 4)

The second film in the series has Private Snafu complaining about having to sweep, cut potatoes and other chores. He's then granted a wish on how he believes the soldiers should be treated each day. This here was the second film in the War Department's series, which was basically meant to educate soldiers during WWII. The title pretty much tells you everything you need to know as Snafu is griping about chores and then we see why everyone has to have a strict routine. The animation is certainly good and Mel Blanc does a fine job with the vocals. I personally thought this second episode was a lot better than the first and there's some adult content here that certainly wasn't normal for the time but since the film didn't have to go thru the Hayes Office it was allowed in.
