'''''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8OYvHPpGDY Peace on Earth]]''''' was a [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1939]] WesternAnimation/MGMOneshotCartoon, released while Europe was on the verge of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, directed by [[Creator/HarmanAndIsing Hugh Harman]]. {{Anvilicious}} in its anti-war message, this short illustrates the evils of warfare through the narration of a kindly old squirrel (Creator/MelBlanc), one of the only squirrels in his village [[AfterTheEnd old enough]] to have encountered [[HumansAreCthulhu humans]]. It was perhaps the first animated short by a major studio[[labelnote:*]] (Creator/WinsorMcCay's ''The Sinking of the Lusitania'' (1918) was almost certainly the earliest by any animator)[[/labelnote]] to deal with serious subject matter. Also a source of quite a bit of nightmares, especially for those caught off guard by the cute little squirrels in the opening scenes.

* TitleDrop: "Hark, The Herald Angels Sing" is reworked into a less overtly religious song that does this (the phrase "peace on earth" is in the original hymn, but not in the same place)

* UnusualAnimalAlliance: Owls and squirrels are natural enemies. One wonders why the wise old owl didn't just eat the others right then and there.
