| "This is the story of an outcast..."
Another entry in the Private Snafu series made for use by the US Army during World War II. This one's directed by Chuck Jones and barely features Snafu. It focuses on how malaria is on the decline because of proper military safeguards. The joke is that malaria is represented by a busty haggard old female mosquito and the short treats malaria almost like a venereal disease. Very funny stuff. I don't know how effective it would've been at actually getting its point across but, then again, I doubt many of these instructional shorts were seen as anything more than diverting entertainment by the servicemen. Excellent black & white animation. Creative and clever writing. Nice voice work. Really a treat. Unlike the reviewers before me, I think this is one of the best in the series, even if Snafu is barely in it.
