Gas (film #12 on The Complete Uncensored Private SNAFU DVD (Image Entertainment, 1999)). [Category: Military & Propaganda]

Private SNAFU is late for a gas drill because his gas mask is at the bottom of his duffel, under huge amounts of junk. He is punsihed by a huge-mouthed sergeant who puts SNAFU through so many drills in his mask that he ends up throwing it into the trashcan the first chance he gets. Of course, that's when the real gas arrives. This cartoon was directed by Chuck Jones and it's one of the funniest and best animated SNAFUs I've ever seen. The sergeant is just one huge mouth and he's wonderfully animated. The anthropomorphic gas is great too. And watch for a very funny cameo by Bugs Bunny himself.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: *****.
