* HilariousInHindsight: This 1939 cartoon was a not-at-all-subtle propaganda piece made to tell kids why they should care about reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. About that…
## At the time, the Pledge was still normally performed using the Bellamy Salute, which was dropped three years later due to it looking way too much like the Nazi "Sieg Heil".
## This cartoon was made just as numerous cases regarding the Pledge started making their way through the federal courts. Although a 1940 case established that schools could compel children to recite the Pledge, a case just three years later, ''West Virginia v Barnett'', overturned that and started the Supreme Court's tendency to strike down states' powers to mandate the Pledge.[[note]] Today, public schools cannot require students to recite the Pledge – both the 1940 and 1943 cases were brought by Jehovah's Witnesses, who are forbidden from swearing oaths (which the Pledge is), making it an unconstitutional abridgement of religious freedom. Schools are also banned from punishing students for ''not'' reciting the Pledge or not standing up during it. Of course, schools (particularly in conservative areas) could ignore these rulings and enforce the old laws, but a quick call to the ACLU and appearance in front of a judge usually ensures this ends badly for the school.[[/note]]
