Many of the Private Snafu cartoons are very enjoyable, and while perhaps not one of the best ones 'In the Aleutians' is not an exception.

Even for the Private Snafu series (where all the cartoons were very short and some feeling it), 'In the Aleutians' does feel a little short, while the story is slight and fairly tame. Snafu does make an appearance but in a non-speaking role and it's basically a very short cameo that doesn't do enough with his character that epitomises the world's most inept soldier but you can't help but love him for it.

However, 'In the Aluetians' is very well-animated though with fluid character designs, detailed and not sparse backgrounds and lively colours/shadings. Carl Stalling always did write outstanding music for the many cartoons he scored for and that is true for 'In the Aleutians', the orchestration is very lush and the pacing is characteristically lively.

The history is interesting and the instructional parts make their point without preaching. 'In the Aleutians' is also a humorous cartoon with razor sharp dialogue delivered with typical zany zest by the incomparable Mel Blanc.

In summary, decent cartoon. 7/10 Bethany Cox
