Troped

Adolf Hitlarious

Playing Hitler For Laughs (without actually excusing anything he did).

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
"I was never crazy about Hitler. If you stand on a soapbox and trade rhetoric with a dictator you never win. That's what they do so well: they seduce people. But if you ridicule them, bring them down with laughter, they can't win. You show how crazy they are."

In short: Adolf Hitler is treated as a joke instead of a monster.

No, this doesn't intend to excuse anything done under his regime. The point is that instead of being treated as some kind of boogeyman or evil incarnate, he's treated as something stupid, for reasons stated in the above quote. And considering Hitler's noted ego in Real Life, this does even more to demean him than nearly any other portrayal.

This was essentially the default portrayal of Hitler in most Allied media during the Second World War. The revelation of the Holocaust put paid to the idea of Hitler as a nationalistic buffoon. It got a resurgence in recent years.

A Sub-Trope of Those Wacky Nazis (with actual emphasis on the "wacky").

Examples

Comic Books
  • Many issues of the original run of Captain America treated Hitler this way. In one story, Captain America and his boy sidekick Bucky battle Hitler and Goebbels. Both senior Nazis squabble over who will get to fight the child hero rather than Cap himself...and then Bucky beats them both up before the heroes just leave the two behind despite the wartime setting. Of course, this is obviously a case of Real Life Writes the Plot, since the real Hitler hadn't been defeated and deposed.
  • Several ''Captain Marvel stories of the 1940s also had Hitler as an almost childlike villain, including one where he is defeated temporarily when exposed to an "honesty ray" that forces him to tell the truth for 24 hours.
  • Hitler was often portrayed as an egotistical loudmouth and a buffoonish villain during the Silver Age of comics books in Marvel Comics' Nick Fury and His Howling Commandos comic.
  • Hellboy: In the "Young Hellboy" strips, Hellboy is assigned to guard Hitler in hell, where he's subjected to various demeaning punishments.
  • Adolf, die Nazisau ("Adolf, the Nazi Pig") by German writer/cartoonist Walter Moers tells the story of Hitler, who survived in the sewers of Berlin, reemerging in the 90s and trying to cope with modern life. Needless to say, numerous lines are crossed, repeatedly. There is also a music video based on the same work, found here (somewhat NSFW due to bare Hitler butt).

Film
  • Mel Brooks is very big on this, having a number of other skits and scenes about this.
    • The Producers is based largely on this, by having a play about him try to be flop (which is why the trope Springtime for Hitler is named so), and hiring a hippie to play Hitler in the film version, and then having a Camp Gay director play him in the stage version.
  • In Little Nicky, Hitler's punishment in hell is to be forced to dress as a French Maid and repeatedly get an Ass Shove with a pineapple.
  • The Devil with Hitler has the Devil screwing around with Hitler, setting him up for all kinds of pratfalls.
  • The Great Dictator is Chaplin's lampoon of German and Italian fascism, with the serial numbers filed off.
  • The Three Stooges had some shorts where they spoofed Hitler and Nazism in general. Most notable is "High As A Kite" where Curly sat down on a photo of Hitler where it got stuck and the Nazi's heiled Curly's bottom.
  • Highway to Hell. Adolf Hitler (Gilbert Gottfried) is one of the inhabitants of Hell. He's played in Gottfried's standard over-the-top manner, very similar to the character of Iago in Disney's Aladdin.
  • The German film Mein Führer, featuring the comedian/singer/songwriter Helge Schneider in the title role lives this trope. In an interview director Dany Levy said that he wanted to "knock the Nazis off their throne of vicious admiration".

Live Action Television
  • The Doctor Who episode "Let's Kill Hitler", where the fuhrer gets locked in a storage cupboard early in the episode, and is still there when it ends.
  • The Whitest Kids U' Know did a skit called "Triumph of the Ill" which featured Hitler rapping.
  • The failed sitcom Heil Honey, I'm Home! attempted this.
  • Monty Python's Flying Circus episode 12. Adolf Hitler survived World War 2 and is living in Britain under the name "Hilter". He tries (badly) to pretend to be British but tends to lose his temper and act in a stupid and crazed manner (he hasn't slept since 1945).
  • Spitting Image featured an elderly Hitler living in Downing Street and advising Margaret Thatcher (although she apparently didn't know it was him as he used the name "Herr Wilcox").
  • Dad's Army refers to this on occasion. The theme tune, Who Do You Think You Are Kidding Mister Hitler?, is a pastiche of wartime songs that treated Hitler as a joke.
  • Soap: In a throwaway gag it's revealed that Hitler is alive and well working as a waiter in a cafe in Ecuador.
  • Mike and the Bots' reaction to the infamous "Hitler Building" scene from Invasion of the Neptune Men.
    All: (upon seeing the building) WHAT?!
    Tom: They blew up the Hitler Building! Now where are the children going to go to see Hitler memorabilia?!
    Crow: All the Hitler rides and games! The Hitler salt and pepper shakers!
    Mike: That great restaurant The Bunker...gone!
  • In Hogan's Heroes, Carter impersonates Hitler several times to dupe Colonel Klink.

Music
  • Der Fuehrer's Face, a Spike Jones tune ridiculing Nazi ideology and Hitler in particular, later the basis for an animated short.
  • Several sets of unofficial lyrics to the Colonel Bogey March include references to Hitler's rumored testicular problems.

Webcomics

Web Originals

Western Animation
  • Frequently, in Family Guy, Hitler is played for laughs in cutaways. One such notable scene consists of nothing other than Hitler, on a unicycle, juggling fish.
    • Another scene is where Death is telling Peter about how important his job is, and uses Hitler as an example. It then cuts to Hitler as a modern talk show host.
  • In one Hey Arnold! episode Arnold's grandfather told an embellished tale of the time he fought Hitler in the war. He defeated Hitler by giving him a wedgie.
  • Looney Tunes:
    • In the 1940s short "Russian Rhapsody," Hitler pilots a bomber personally to attack Russia, but is defeated by Russian gremlins who do such things as putting tacks on his chair and dissassembling the bomber out from under him.
    • A 1945 Bugs Bunny cartoon, "Hare Meets Herr," has Bugs make mock of Hermann Goerring in the same manner that he usually takes on Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam. At the end, Bugs scares off Hitler and Goerring by dressing up as Josef Stalin.
  • Robot Chicken's "Li'l Hitler" shorts feature a child version of Hitler at school trying to take over the desks of other students.
  • South Park does have some straight examples, for example in "Hell On Earth 2006" and "Mr Hankey's Christmas Classics" where he appears as a deranged resident of Hell. Cartman also admires him and dresses up as him for fun, much to others' disgust.
    Narrator: Adolf Hitler was a very, very naughty man!
  • The Tex Avery short Blitz Wolf centers around a wolf-caricature of Hitler being silly.

    It's worth noting that this was essentially the default portrayal of Hitler in most Allied media during the Second World War. The revelation of the Holocaust put paid to the idea of Hiler as a nationalistic buffoon. Interestingly, Hitler's ally -- and real father of Fascism -- Benito Mussolini was and remains clownish in most pop cultural portrayals. It helps that Mussolini was defeated earlier than Hitler due to his even greater military incompetence and that Italian Fascism never became as genocidal as Nazism.

    • Would Inglourious Basterds' version count? It's not as slapsticky as the others, but his first scene has him in throwing a tantrum in a ridiculous outfit, and similarly act like a pompous fool until the end.

    In a comic of Indiana Jones, the title character actually meets Hitler. Despite having indirectly chased him with his Nazi goons for years, he takes a look at a copy of Indy's book, and actually autographs it.

    ^ That wasn't a comic. That was Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade. Also, I don't think it fits. Hitler didn't know what Jones looked like, so had no good reason to think it was anything other than just another person in the crowd.

    Dads Army refers to this on occasion. The theme tune, Who Do You Think You Are Kidding Mister Hitler?, is a pastiche of wartime songs that treated Hitler as a joke.

    To be honest, this trope has been something of a staple of British comedy over the years so it shouldn't be too hard to find plenty more.

    This trope could be extended to apply to fictional depictions of other dictators and mass murderers, such as the portrayals of Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Ladin in South Park.

    Childrens' comics published in Britain during the war years used this trope: a long-running serial comic strip was called Benito the Wop (He Da Bigga-Da-Flop) and while it focused on a bragadoccio coward caricature of Mussolini, his German best friend was frequently to be seen, also caricatured for comic effect. In one episode Hitler appeared as the painter and decorator Mussolini had employed to repaint his palace...

    Probably clumsy English. That user was replying to a comment that claimed "Italian Fascism never became as genocidal as Nazism".

    "Hitler Is Hilarious?"

    That could work.

    I wouldn't do "Hitler is Hilarious", because that could be taken the wrong way since it might imply laughing at all the evil things Hitler did. Somehow, "Heilarious Hitler" sounds better to because it makes it clear that this is supposed to be a comedic portrayal of Adolf Hitler.

    BTW, I at least thought of a good name for the Super Trope: Historical Clown Upgrade (unless someone can come up with a better middle word). It wouldn't be limited to dictators, because that would leave room for some claiming dubious examples. Also, it would technically be a snowclone, but it's also a Sister Trope to those tropes as well.

    As for this trope, perhaps Heil Hilarity?

    @mdulwich: other British comedians have used over-the-top caricatures of Hitler. In Spike Milligan's Q series, Milligan would dress and act as an over-the-top and frankly insane version of Hitler; he carried this on in his manic war autobiography series beginning with Adolf Hitler: His part In My Downfall The sometimes stepping-over-the-mark comic Freddie Starr also enjoyed dressing as Hitler.

    Definitely tropeworthy. Though the draft needs Rolling Updates.

    There are a lot of Fan Vids (Funny re-cut style) on youtube that poke fan at him with various Cross Overs. I'm not sure we would wanna list them, but I thought I would mention it just to show that the concept is for real and the trope exists.

    I agree with the voices that this would deserve a broader treatment for other dictators and evil politicians. Though Hitler is probably most prominent and recognizable.

    Monty Pythons Flying Circus had a sketch in which Hitler, Goebbels, and Himmler survived WWII and are secretly hiding in England... by renting a room from a suburban couple under the aliases "Mr. Hilter", "Ron Vibbentrop", and "Heinrich Bimmler". No one recognizes them in spite of their Paper Thin Disguises, but "Hilter"'s campaigning for the "National Bocialist Party" is completely ineffective.
