* Possibly the ultimate classic example would be [[ClassicDisneyShorts Disney's]] ''[[Disney/DerFuehrersFace Donald Duck in Nutzi Land]]'', in which Donald dreams he's a factory worker in a surreal version of Nazi Germany. This cartoon was the source of the song "Der Fuehrer's Face" (which the short was later renamed after), famously recorded by Spike Jones and his City Slickers:

->''"'SUPERMAN SAYS: '''YOU''' CAN SLAP A JAP' might be the most famous racist comic panel of all time. It's included in nearly every discussion of WWII propaganda and is found on Creator/MelGibson's computer in the folder 'Tattoo Ideas.' [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation But to Superman's credit, he was probably trying to stop that printing press.]] Superman ''never'' talked like that. I mean, you don't call someone racist when he owns a coffin [[http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Superman%27s_Girlfriend,_Lois_Lane_Vol_1_106 that can make his girlfriend black.]]"''

** Creator/HarryTurtledove's ''{{Worldwar}}'' series included an alternate version of "Der Fuehrer's Face" directed at the Fleetlord of the alien invasion.

Added DiffLines:

* "WesternAnimation/TulipsShallGrow" (1942) has the "Screwballs", actual balls with screws in them but obvious analogues for the Nazis, come rolling into Holland bringing devastation and misery. (The Nazis occupied Holland in 1940.)

*** By 1945, when the outcome looked much more favorable, Avery released ''Jerky Turkey'' which has almost too many war references to count. For starters: The Pilgrim's ship has a fuel ration card ''and'' offensive armament, when they land at Plymouth Rock they are greeted by a billboard asking "Was this trip really necessary?" and the town cryer is a ''literal'' "Crier" who's sobbing because he just got his draft notice....



* Creator/TexAvery was fond of using meat rationing as a theme in otherwise non-war-related cartoons ''Jerky Turkey'', ''Big Heel-Watha'', and ''What's Buzzin', Buzzard?''

* ''WesternAnimation/FreedomForce 2'', being a big tribute to comics of the era, naturally has this in spades.

* Similarly, FamousStudios did four war-themed [[SupermanTheatricalCartoons Superman shorts]] the rather racist "Japoteurs" (rarely included in compilations), the somewhat less offensive "The Eleventh Hour", and two where Superman battled the Nazis.

Typical trademarks of these cartoons that are usually spoofed: propaganda elements, racist caricatures, outdated references to the war effort (i.e., {{Shout Out}}s to save scrap iron, buy war bonds, or grow a Victory Garden). UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler, UsefulNotes/BenitoMussolini, and/or Emperor Hirohito often make a cameo and are ridiculed.
