''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]].

Added DiffLines:

* 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."

* BadSamaritan: Goldy the Goldbrick, who is really a Japanese spy hoping to convince enough soldiers to slack off and enable Japan to win the war.

* SwallowTheKey: The Japanese soldier in "Operation Snafu". (And the war secret too, later on. In a [[OutOfCharacterMoment strange lapse of compentence]], Snafu kidnaps the soldier along with the secret and rows back to America.)

** {{Defied|Trope}} in a way, as many Nazis 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).

* BizarroEpisode[=/=]LaterInstallmentWeirdness: The last two shorts, coming right at the tail end of the war (and presumably with all the important training subjects having already been addressed), became more or less military-themed ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' installments: one with Snafu and a Japanese officer fighting over a small island, and the other one placing Snafu on an uncharacteristic commando mission into the heart of Tokyo.



* TooDumbToLive: Private Snafu. Of course, since it's a primarily an instructional series, the entire point is to show [[ForgotAboutHisPowers how]] ''[[ForgotAboutHisPowers not]]'' [[ForgotAboutHisPowers to act]]. That said, it's a wonder he wasn't rejected 4F due to mental incompetence.
