* "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.

->''"'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.' 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.]]"''

* 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Typical trademarks of these cartoons that are usually spoofed: propaganda elements, racist caricatures, outdated references to the war effort (i.e., {{Shout Out}}s to save scrap iron, buy war bonds, or grow a Victory Garden).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.

*** It maybe even Inverted for some cartoons. ''Donald Gets Drafted'', for example, actually made to satirized how the real condition of war compared to the glamorized propaganda by mocking the Drill training and the military recruitment.
** Wouldn't it have been more logical for Donald to be in the Navy, or at least [[SemperFi the Marines]]?
*** Since his dream was to fly (he's a bird, remember), perhaps the Air Force?
*** Since the U.S. didn't have a separate Air Force at the time, [[ItMakesSenseInContext it makes sense]] that Donald was in the Army, hoping to get assigned to the ''Army'' Air Forces, which he actually does in one short.

** "Ration for the Duration" opens with Popeye and his nephews planting a victory garden.

** "Ration for the Duration" opens with Popeye and his nephews planting a victory garden. Also featured in the cartoon is a giant hoarding things like sugar, tires, and shoes (among other goods) which Popeye, being a participant in rationing, doesn't approve of and decides to take them to help the war effort.
