The term '''wartime cartoon''' refers primarily to cartoons made or released in TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and having some specific reference to the war effort. Many wartimes are explicit propaganda, while others make humorous jabs at conditions on the home front such as the rationing of fuels, materials and consumer goods, and even meat.

* The UrExample dates back to UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, with "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CPbmCYxPmA The Sinking Of The Lusitania]]" by Creator/WinsorMcCay in 1918. [=McCay=] personally drew over 25,000 frames of realistic animation by hand to create a nine-minute documentary of the ship's sinking, explicitly making the propaganda point that it was an act of war aggression by the Germans. It is also regarded as the first film to treat animation as a serious, dramatic art form.

** The animators did sneak a subtle reference to the Nazis in. The star Foxy Loxy used to make Chicken Little think the sky was falling? It was from the sign of an astrologer- MAdame [[SdrawckabName Izan]].

Added DiffLines:
** The RealLife implications are subverted in that if Hitler came to power in 1933, a child born under his rule would have been twelve at most by the time the war ended.

While some wartimes have remained popular as period pieces, [[ValuesDissonance many of these are now considered controversial]] due to the caricatural depictions of Germans and (especially) Japanese (see ThoseWackyNazis and YellowPeril). Of course, with the UsefulNotes/{{Holocaust}} occurrence now common knowledge, it's interesting how the racial policies of the Nazis were relatively rarely dwelt upon in those cartoons. So imagine the shock of the general public when the FinalSolution death camps were discovered and their realization of what they might have heard, ThoseWackyNazis were actually ''worse'' with them committing acts of villainy that beggared the worst of nightmares.

* BarneyBear had at least two wartime shorts; "The Rookie Bear", where he is drafted into the army, and "Barney Bear's Victory Garden" which has Barney prepare a victory garden. One gag had him get the soil ready by making a huge portrait of Hitler so that it gets bombed by passing B-19s. Another scene depicts UsefulNotes/BenitoMussolini as an eggplant.

* Two of the MGMOneshotCartoons are explicit wartime cartoons: "War Dogs" and "The Stork's Holiday". "Innertube Antics" plot is also a nod to the strict rationing of rubber during the war years.

See ''Nimbus Libere'', a Nazi cartoon produced for Vichy France, in which French civilians are killed by an Allied bombing raid. What makes the cartoon really weird is that the bomber pilots are Western cartoon heroes--Popeye, Mickey Mouse, etc.
