* LooseLips: The essential Aesop to the short, ''Spies'', in which Snafu inadvertently blabs bit by bit all the spies around him need to know about his ship's departure time.

Added DiffLines:

* GrassIsGreener: "The Infantry Blues" has Snafu griping about how difficult being in the infantry is and wishes he was in the Tank Corps, Navy, or Air Force where they have it easier. Technical Fairy First Class shows up to show Snafu that the other branches are just as difficult and everyone needs to work hard to achieve victory.

** {{Defied|Trope}} in a way, as many Nazis --and even the Japanese-- are shown as far more competent than their bumbling counterparts seen in civilian propaganda. Several of Snafu's screwups result in Nazi victories (''Weapons of War'', where a Nazi captures Sanfu since the latter had taken poor care of his equipment and ''Spies'', where Nazi spies send information straight to Hitler, who sends his U-boat fleet after the Ship Snafu is on).

The reason for this is that civilian propaganda's aim was to allay fears at home by depicting the Axis powers as a joke, while the goal of military propaganda was to demonstrate the opposite, telling soldiers that their enemies were a real, very dangerous threat and had to be taken seriously.

''Private Snafu'' was largely sealed away after the end of the war and was not widely seen again until Creator/CartoonNetwork aired some as part of two ''ToonHeads'' specials: one about lost and rare animated works and another about UsefulNotes/WorldWarII cartoons. A few shorts appeared as extras in the ''Looney Tunes: Golden Collection'' [=DVDs=]. Some of them are available for viewing on [[http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=collection%3Amore_animation%20AND%20subject%3A%22SNAFU%22 the Internet Archive]].

* FriendOrFoe: In ''Snafuperman'', Snafu accidentally air-raids ''the White House'' because he thought it was Berlin, and attack an American tank (and piss off General Patton) because he thought it was a Japanese tank. The moral is "study the field manual and maps."
