Added DiffLines:

* PistolWhipping: Snafu smacks a Nazi in the face with his rifle butt in "Fighting Tools": the rifle having jammed because of Snafu's lack of maintenance. This does not help him.

* SafeDrivingAesop: This trope was PlayedForLaughs in one episode that had Snafu driving a jeep, but getting distracted by a poster of a [[DistractedByTheSexy woman in lingerie]] and crashing. Explosions ensued, but being a cartoon, Snafu was [[AshFace perfectly okay]]. Since the shorts were entertaining, soldiers paid attention and they still got the message across.

It could be considered a SpinOff of the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes and [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]] series of cartoons, supported by a few cameos of WesternAnimation/BugsBunny and usage of Creator/MelBlanc as the voice of the bumbling Snafu, though, unlike the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoons, the Private Snafu shorts were more adult, allowing a lot of scenes and gags that wouldn't have been approved by the HaysCode (mostly, it was showing women in various states of undress, but there was also some mild ToiletHumor and swearing).

* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Though the Nazi forces tend to be given the same silly front as standard ''LooneyTunes'' examples (right down to Mel Blanc's goofiest German accent), they are treated as much more lethal and resilient, and sometimes even [[TheBadGuyWins successfully bump off Snafu in the end]]. Justified as these shorts were for the purpose of military viewing and showing soldiers to take their jobs cautiously.

** In "The Home Front," Snafu envies his family and girlfriend back stateside, and how they have their usual, comfortable lives while he has to suffer in deployment. He soon sees that every one of them (including the grandfather) are also very hard at work to support the war effort, through construction, keeping a war garden, and joining the WACs.
