'''''[[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.

* CockroachesWillRuleTheEarth: Made in 1939 (just before World War II would be set off), and is set after a war in Humans have gone extinct after fatal global war as told by a kindly old squirrel (voiced by Mel Blanc) to his grandchildren in which the animals of the earth build a new civilization following this self inflicted omnicide. This was also remade in 1955 as "Good Will to Men" and modified with an anti-nuclear warfare message.

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

According to Hugh Harman's obituary in the New York Times, and Ben Mankiewicz, host of Cartoon Alley, the cartoon was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, but this is most likely an urban legend that got exaggerated, as the cartoon is not listed in the official Nobel Prize nomination database.
