->''"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."''
-->-- '''Creator/MelBrooks'''

In short: UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler is treated as a [[LaughablyEvil 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.

This was essentially the default portrayal of Hitler [[WartimeCartoon in most Allied media]] during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. German atrocities in eastern Europe, which were dismissed as propaganda elsewhere, made this portrayal a little more controversial there. After Franco-Anglo-American citizens became aware of UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust in the late 1960s and 1970s, this trope became controversial there as well. This is because some people think that making fun of the Nazis makes the War Crimes and genocides they perpetrated seem 'less serious' somehow.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' movie ''Anime/DragonBallZFusionReborn'' does one when the dead are returning to the world of the living where a man [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute who looks like Hitler]] is commanding a legion of tanks and is fighting Goten and Trunks and failing. It got cut in some dubs though.
* Naturally, [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Germany]] of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' occasionally causes this, commenting on his "[[MyCountryRightOrWrong crazy Boss]]". This is far more accentuated in the GagDub, however.
* Zigzagged in ''Manga/TheLegendOfKoizumi'': Hitler is initially portrayed as a terrifyingly charismatic sociopath, but things take a left turn into insanity -- played with an absolutely straight face, of course -- when he [[spoiler: reveals his [[OneWingedAngel final form]]: [[Anime/DragonBallZ SUPER ARYAN]] ]].

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Many issues of the original run of ''ComicBook/CaptainAmerica'' treated Hitler this way. In one story, Captain America and his boy sidekick Bucky battle Hitler and Goering. 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 RealLifeWritesThePlot, since the real Hitler hadn't been defeated and deposed.
* Several ''[[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} 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. Or Reltih, the Reverse Hitler, who chose to try and conquer his own world by marrying into the United Kingdom's Royal Family. You get the idea.
* Hitler was often portrayed as an egotistical loudmouth and a buffoonish villain during UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks in Creator/MarvelComics' ComicBook/NickFury and His Howling Commandos comic.
* ''Adolf, die Nazisau'' ("Adolf, the Nazi Pig") by German writer/cartoonist Creator/WalterMoers tells the story of Hitler, who survived in the sewers of Berlin, reemerging in the 90s and trying to cope with modern life. There is also a music video based on the same work. It's indeed [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3vstl_adolf-du-alte-nazisau_fun hitlarious]]
* In ''ComicBook/SavageDragon'', it is revealed that Hitler's brain was saved and was in the body of a super-powered gorilla. Thus, the villain Brainape was born. The character obviously started off as a joke but once it was discovered whose brain was in there, he became even more buffoonish.
* This was a staple of wartime British cartoons, sometimes pairing him up with UsefulNotes/BenitoMussolini as a pair of {{Butt Monkey}}s.
* ''ComicStrip/{{Nero}}'': In certain albums he is shown to be still alive, hiding in an igloo or on an island. Yet in later stories he is shown as a denizen in Hell.
* One of Hergé's comic strips "ComicStrip/QuickAndFlupke" was made during the 1930s. In a some episodes the little boys dress up as Hitler and Mussolini. After World War II these innocent jokes were suddenly not that funny anymore and are kept out of the official Quick & Flupke albums.
* ''ComicBook/{{Werner}} Oder was?'' has a one-page rhyme comic which claims that the Führer didn't have a Führerschein (driver's license).
* ''Adventures in the ComicBook/RifleBrigade'', a Creator/GarthEnnis comic about English sterotypes (and an American) during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, has the Brigade defeat a Baroness by singing "Hitler Has Only Got One Ball".

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Creator/MelBrooks, who provides the page quote, naturally has taken plenty of shots at Hitler in his films.
** ''Film/TheProducers'' is based largely on this, by having a play about him try to be a flop (which is why the trope SpringtimeForHitler is named so), and hiring a hippie to play Hitler in the film version, and then having a CampGay director play him in the stage version (where the character's name is "Adolf Elizabeth Hitler").
** Brooks's 1983 remake of ''Film/ToBeOrNotToBe'' plays up Hitler himself as an object of ridicule, as well as turning what in the original 1942 film was a serious play put on by the main characters about the Nazis called "Gestapo" into a blatant musical parody called "Naughty Nazis," which borrows more than a little from ''The Producers'' and "Springtime for Hitler."
** ''Film/HistoryOfTheWorldPartI'': "See... Hitler on ice!" [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Cut to Hitler in full uniform ice skating.]]
** ''Film/BlazingSaddles'' has a scene toward the end that takes place in the Warner Brothers commissary. An actor dressed as Hitler (who is implied to be Jewish) mentions "the bunker scene" before the place explodes into a hilarious pie fight. As the brawl unfolds, said actor can be seen in the background, tossing out rapid-fire Nazi salutes for absolutely no reason at all.
* For ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'', Creator/QuentinTarantino "introduces" Hitler as a LargeHam who whines about the title characters while ChewingTheScenery and MilkingTheGiantCow.
-->'''Hitler:''' NEIN!--NEIN!--NEIN!--NEIN!--NEIN!--NEIN!--NEIN!
* One of the short films in the horror-comedy anthology, ''Chillerama'', is called The Diary of Anne Frankenstein. The film has the distinction of making fun of both Hitler and Anne Frank.
* ''Film/TheGreatDictator'' is Chaplin's lampoon of German and Italian fascism, with the serial numbers filed off. Chaplin plays both "Adenoid Hynkel, ruler of Tomainia," who is transparently an {{Expy}} of Hitler, and the nameless Jewish barber who is a dead ringer for him.
* ''Film/TheThreeStooges'', who were all Jewish, were the first comics to publicly spoof Hitler, Goebbels, and Goering with the short "Film/YouNaztySpy." They followed up with other examples, including the scene in "High As A Kite" where Curly sits down on a photo of Hitler, causing Nazis to heil Curly's bottom.
* In ''Film/LittleNicky'', Hitler's punishment in hell is to be forced to dress as a FrenchMaid and repeatedly get an AssShove with a pineapple.
* ''The Devil with Hitler'', a World War Two propaganda comedy film, has the Devil screwing around with Hitler, setting him up for all kinds of pratfalls.
* ''Highway to Hell''. Adolf Hitler (Creator/GilbertGottfried) 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 ''Disney/{{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".
* The German comedy movie ''Film/DerWixxer'' has Alfons Hatler, a butler (and in the sequel the warden of a BedlamHouse) who, [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed additionally to his similar name, also looks and talks like Hitler]]. In a bit of a subversion (both to resembling hitler and being a [[TheButlerDidIt butler in a crime mystery]]) he is neither villianous nor evil.
* The 2008 Russian comedy ''Gitler Kaput'' (literally "Hitler's Kaput!") has this in spades, turning the Fuhrer into an nervous wreck obsessed with, of all things, potatoes and who surrounds himself with white rappers decked out in Nazi-themed bling. It also lampoons German and Soviet troops, with the lead Pavel Derevyanko playing a blundering parody of SS mole Maxim Isaev from ''Series/SeventeenMomentsOfSpring''.
* ''Film/KungFury'' features Adolf Hitler, a.k.a. Kung Führer, the worst criminal of all time.
* In ''Film/WhoAmI'', a hacker group manages to hack the presentation laptop during a neo-Nazi conference and play their animation depicting Adolf Hitler in woman underwear being dry-humped by dogs. The audience is outraged.
* ''Er Ist Wieder Da'' ("Look Who's Back"), based upon the comedic novel listed below, in which the Führer himself ends up in present day Germany, and becomes a media sensation.

* ''Die galaktische Gurke'', a parody one-shot of Literature/PerryRhodan, had a crazy android named Adlof Hilter, who thought he was the Führer. Since in the 70s, Rhodan was too often compared to Hitler by leftist critics [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment (there are enough reasons pro and contra this opinion)]], Rhodan fans fumed.
* ''Er Ist Wieder Da'' ("Look Who's Back") is a comedic novel in which the Führer himself ends up in present day Germany, and becomes a media sensation.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "Let's Kill Hitler", where the Führer gets locked in a storage cupboard early in the episode, and is still there when it ends.
-->'''Rory:''' Shut up, Hitler!
* ''Series/TheWhitestKidsUKnow'' did a skit called "Triumph of the Ill" which featured Hitler rapping.
* ''Series/TheITCrowd'' features a rather throwaway gag where Douglas, upon passing out after accidentally shooting himself in the leg, meets [[spoiler:his father, Denholm]] in heaven, who attempts to persuade him into coming into the light. Before he can do this, however, Hitler pokes his head round the door and Douglas starts to suspect that ThisIsntHeaven. This leads to [[spoiler:Denholm]] trying to play him off as a woman dressed up for a heaven Hitler party.
* The failed sitcom ''Series/HeilHoneyImHome'' attempted this.
* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'':
** Episode 12: Adolf Hitler survived UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and is living in Britain under the name "[[PaperThinDisguise 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).
** There's also the "Funniest Joke in the World" sketch, wherein said joke is used as a war weapon against the Nazis, but the parts that best fit the trope are the German "counter-joke" (which are just captions superimposed on Hitler's speech footage) and the Allied soldier being interrogated at Gestapo.
* ''Series/DadsArmy'' 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.
* When some people complained that ''Series/AlloAllo'' made Nazis look fun and harmless, thus encouraging people to embrace Neo-Nazism, the counterargument was portraying the Gestapo as bumbling idiots, and the Wehrmacht as corrupt fools was a better way to make them unattractive to mindless thugs, rather then making them Ubermensch killing machines.
* ''Series/{{Soap}}'': In a throwaway gag it's revealed that Hitler is alive and well working as a waiter in a cafe in Ecuador.
* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'': Mike and the Bots' reaction to the infamous "Hitler Building" scene from ''Film/InvasionOfTheNeptuneMen''.
-->'''All:''' (''upon seeing the building'') '''[[BigWhat 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!
* ''Series/HogansHeroes'':
** Carter impersonates Hitler several times to dupe Colonel Klink.
** Kinchloe, played by African-American actor Ivan Dixon, also impersonated Hitler a few times--over the phone, naturally. He once ordered Klink to send a German Officer to the Russian Front--the officer was secretly a Russian POW.
* The ''Obersalzberg'' skits from German comedy series ''Series/{{Switch}}!'' are essentially ''Series/{{The Office|UK}}'', Third Reich style, with Hitler as the hapless David Brent figure (Or rather, his counterpart from the German version of the Office, ''Series/{{Stromberg}}'').
* Hitler appears in an episode of ''Series/ElChapulinColorado'', played by {{Chespirito}} himself, with the [[HilarityEnsues expected results]].
* Done a few times in ''Series/RedDwarf'', most notably when Lister managed to get himself inserted into the Nuremberg Rally.
-->'''Lister:''' No, don't listen! He's a complete and total nutter! And he's only got one testicle!
* DiscussedTrope in ''Series/TheKidsInTheHall'': According to one skit, a bawdy sketch involving Hitler [[BestialityIsDepraved among the pigs]] was deemed too offensive to show.
* ''Series/MrShow'':
** A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UojL96_3jOs sketch]] took the form of a news item about [[YouClonedHitler cloned Hitlers]] being given out to Jewish families, who use them for all sorts of mundane purposes. If the owners die, the Hitler is on its own. Turns out life is pretty tough when everybody knows you're Hitler.
--->'''Cynical Hitler (Creator/DavidCross):''' You know, the young ones are always grumbling about how "we never asked to be grown in a lab." Well, let me tell you something, we have a saying around here: Get used to it, Hitler!
** In the very first episode, David performs a piece from his one man show "Hitler Sings", in which he puts on a mustache and gazes longingly out the window singing, [[IWantSong "When will I be special?]] [[StylisticSuck When will I be someone who's loved for me?"]] Turns out he [[CrossesTheLineTwice confuses Hitler]] with [[Literature/TheDiaryOfAYoungGirl Anne Frank]].
* In ''Series/{{Misfits}}'' after a [[ItMakesSenseInContext time travel plot goes wrong]], Hitler gets beaten up by violent chav, Kelly. First by headbutting him, then kicking him in the crotch a few times when he is on the ground.
-->'''Kelly:''' Oi, 'Itler. Why 'ave you gotta be such a dick!?
* ''Series/{{SCTV}}'': A tabloid news show has a clip of Hitler, alive and working as a short-order cook (played by Andrea Martin). There's a sign above the counter reading "Have Hitler cook your breakfast!"
* ''Series/HorribleHistories'' makes fun of bad people from history all the time (and everyone else from history, for that matter) so it's not surprising they've had one or two instances of poking fun at the Fuhrer. "If we wake him up, such a paddy he will get in!"

* ''Der Fuehrer's Face'', a Music/SpikeJones tune ridiculing Nazi ideology and Hitler in particular, later the basis for an animated short (see below).
* Several sets of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitler_Has_Only_Got_One_Ball unofficial lyrics]] to the "ColonelBogeyMarch" include references to Hitler's rumored testicular problems.
* Music/TheBonzoDogBand: On "The Intro & the Outro" of their debut album, ''Gorilla'', Hitler apparently plays along in the band.
* In Music/NickLowe's song "Little Hitler", he compares Jake Riviera, his notoriously thuggish manager, to the Fuhrer.
* Possibly an UrExample: In 1939, some Nazi leaders denounced the popular music-hall song [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lambeth_Walk "The Lambeth Walk"]] as "Jewish mischief and animalistic hopping." So Charles Ridley of the British Ministry of Information took some footage of Nazi troops from ''Film/TriumphOfTheWill'' and [[OlderThanTheyThink remixed it to make it look like they were dancing]] to (you guessed it) the Lambeth Walk. Comics historian Creator/MarkEvanier remarks, "It is said the film was shown for Joseph Goebbels and he exploded and ran screaming from the room in anger. If so, that alone was reason enough to make it." You can watch it on his blog [[http://www.newsfromme.com/2011/11/12/todays-video-link-561/ here]].
* Music/TheResidents devoted an entire concept album, ''Music/ThirdReichAndRoll'', to poking fun at Hitler and Nazis.
* Subverted for shock value in Music/AnalCunt's "Hitler Was a Sensitive Man" and "I Went Back in Time and Voted for Hitler".
* The sound track for the Mel Brooks film, ''Film/ToBeOrNotToBe (1983)'' has an extra bonus track called "Hitler Rap," not in the film. Brooks [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zpYQJkBQp0 made a video of it]].

[[folder:Puppet Shows]]
* ''Series/SpittingImage'' features an elderly Hitler living in [[UsefulNotes/TheMenOfDowningStreet Downing Street]] and advising UsefulNotes/MargaretThatcher (although she apparently doesn't know it is him as he uses the name "Herr Wilcox").

* While [[UltimateEvil Hitler never actually appeared]] on ''Radio/OldHarrysGame'', he is the most frequently mentioned of the damned not counting the main cast. Most of what we hear about him is his [[InsaneTrollLogic ridiculously flimsy justifications]] as to why [[NeverMyFault his actions weren't his fault]].

* ''The Em-Fuehrer Jones'', Creator/LangstonHughes' parody of ''Theatre/TheEmperorJones'', has Hitler lost in a black forest, trying in vain to goosestep away from the non-Aryan voices that menace him from all directions.
* Martin Downing's ''The House of Frankenstein'' features a "Phantom of the Opera" whose crippling facial deformity is a face that's a spitting image of Hitler's, fetish fuel for Ilsa the German maid...

* ''VideoGame/HeartsOfIron 3'' consistently pokes fun at Hitler in the tutorial which he narrates, reminding you that his facial hair is inadequate and he's not a very good painter. The tutorial also ends with him [[GallowsHumor shooting himself in the head]].
* The online game ''Double Hitler'', a ''VideoGame/{{QWOP}}''-style adventure game that suggests Hitler was actually two young boys in a TotemPoleTrench.

* ''Film/{{Downfall}}'' Hitler (of ''Hitler Rants'' fame) is one of the main villains of ''WebAnimation/TheFrolloShow'', and one of the most [[HarmlessVillain incompetent and stupid]].

* ''Webcomic/TheNonAdventuresOfWonderella'' has an OppositeSexClone of Hitler, called [[{{Ladyella}} Hitlerella]], who is treated just as much of a joke as the rest of the cast.
* ''Webcomic/SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal'' has various strips involving Hitler that make jokes at his expense, such as [[RichardNixonTheUsedCarSalesman an alternate universe Hitler who works at a carnival]] and creating Hitler clones for the sole purpose of punishing them.
* ''Webcomic/HipsterHitler'' is made of this, re-imagining him as a modern-day pretentious hipster (also featuring Joseph Stalin as a frat guy).
* ''WebComic/{{Goats}}'':
** In an arc, the protagonists go see the movie "Good Hitler versus Space Hitler", where Good Hitler is essentially a James Bond expy while Space Hitler is a creepy alien. It's implied to be only the latest in a long line of Good Hitler movies.
** The ''Good Hitler'' [[ShowWithinAShow franchise]] went on the become a bit of a running joke in ''Goats'', and the beginning of a ''Good Hitler'' story (in which he fought Good Kim Jong Un who had [[FaceHeelTurn turned evil]]) was later featured in Jon Rosenberg's other comic ScenesFromAMultiverse.
* ''WebComic/BobTheAngryFlower'' has [[http://www.angryflower.com/384.html a strip]] where Hitler returned to Earth to atone for his sins by saving people. Everyone hates him and treats him badly because he's, well, Hitler.
* ''Webcomic/BugMartini'' shows us [[http://www.bugmartini.com/comic/world-flame-war-ii/ it's a bad idea to argue with Hitler over the internet]].

* This is the premise of the ''WebVideo/HitlerRants'' GagSub videos. These videos use clips from ''Film/{{Downfall}}'', which is about the last ten days of Hitler's life in the Führerbunker. In the early days, people just added {{Gag Sub}}s to a scene of Hitler angrily ranting, making it look like he is ranting about whatever the video creator takes issue with at the moment. But later on, people started adding comical special effects, creating a bizarre cartoonish universe, wherein Hitler comes up with outlandish plans to win the war, which are usually foiled by the incompetence of himself or his generals or the jokes and antics of his brother-in-law Hermann Fegelein.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': Despite creator Creator/MattGroening going on record claiming he is not fond of Hitler jokes, he has a let a few good ones pass. Sadly, some of Hitler's appearances on the show are more redundant than really funny.
** In [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS4E16Duffless "Duffless"]], Hitler's head is seen passing by in a bottle with formol.
** In [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E4RoseBud "Rosebud"]] a flashback shows that Mr. Burns teddy bear Bobo fell into Hitler's hands after Charles Lindbergh crossed the Atlantic. During the bombing of Berlin, Hitler blamed Bobo for his downfall. "This is all ''your fault!''"
** In [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E16BartVsAustralia "Bart vs. Australia"]], Bart unknowingly dials Hitler's telephone number, as it appears he's still alive as an old man in Argentina.
** In [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS12E14NewKidsOnTheBlecch "New Kids on the Blecch"]], an Olympic TV special is broadcast showing Hitler enraged that in the 1936 Olympics, Jesse Owens outraces his Zeppelin. In the [[RuleOfFunny 1968]] Olympics, Bob Beamon breaks the long jump record and gets him angry again.
** In the episode [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS4E6ItchyAndScratchyTheMovie "Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie"]], a cartoon from the 1940s is shown where Itchy and Scratchy beat, kick and decapitate Hitler. Then Itchy chops off Scratchy's head and Franklin D. Roosevelt appears, kicking both Hitler and Scratchy in the butt.
** In [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS15E4TheReginaMonologues "The Regina Monologues"]], Moe guesses that Hitler was the famous person depicted on the $1000 bill.
** In [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/TheSimpsonsS9E12BartCarny "Bart Carny"]], Hitler's car is destroyed by Bart during a carnival. Nelson Muntz punches Bart and asks him: "That was Hitler's car. What did he ever do to you?"
** In [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS14E19OldYellerBelly "Old Yeller Belly"]], Lisa and Santa's Little Helper watch an old ''Film/RinTinTin'' movie, where the dog bites Hitler for no other apparent reason than the fact that they both appeared in black-and-white movies.
** In an ''Itchy and Scratchy'' cartoon that spoofs ''Film/TheKingsSpeech'', Hitler is -- again -- thrown in at the last moment, crushing Scratchy with his tank. This causes Maggie to imitate Hitler's salute, to which Lisa quickly corrects her.
** The alternative ending of the film ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'' in [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS9E25NaturalBornKissers "Natural Born Kissers"]] shows Hitler trying to kill Humphrey Bogart, but he is defeated in the end.
** The Christmas special segment set in World War II ended with Marge breaking into a Nazi-filled movie theater, ''Film/IngloriousBasterds'' style. When she asks where Hitler is, he quickly rips off his mustache and places it on the ''elephant'' next to him.
** In [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS4E20WhackingDay "Whacking Day"]], Grandpa Simpson tells a (probably apocryphal) story in which he, in drag, performs as a cabaret singer for a room full of Nazis and catches the eye of Hitler... until his fake boob falls out.
--> '''Hitler:''' "Auch du liber! Das ist nicht ein booby!"
* Frequently, in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', Hitler is played for laughs in cutaways.
** One such notable scene consists of nothing other than Hitler, on a unicycle, juggling fish. [[BrickJoke Later in the episode]] it cuts back to Hitler on a unicycle, only for Peter to run in and punch the Fuhrer's lights out.
--->'''Peter:''' See, we had a plan for that all along.
** [[TheGrimReaper Death]] tells Peter about how death is a necessary part of life, and gives an example by asking what the world would be like if Hitler never died. It then cuts to Hitler as a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKH8E8WzFZk modern talk show host]].
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTO6fAJf1GM One scene]] has a scrawny Hitler struggling to lift tiny dumbbells, then looking enviously at a chiseled rabbi with floozies on his arms. ''And that was in the pilot episode as the very first CutawayGag in the series'', after someone brought up the dangers of poor body image.
* In one ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' 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.
* WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes:
** The 1933 cartoon ''[[WesternAnimation/BoskoTheTalkInkKid Bosko]]'s Picture Show'' includes a mock newsreel, which at one point features vaudeville comedian Creator/JimmyDurante on vacation in "Pretzel, Germany". Durante is shown being chased around by Hitler, who is wearing lederhosen and carrying an ax. This is believed to be the first depiction of Hitler in American pop culture. This section with Hitler is often cut in syndication, however.
** In the 1944 short ''WesternAnimation/RussianRhapsody'', Hitler pilots a bomber personally to attack Russia, but is defeated by "gremlins from the Kremlin", who do such things as putting tacks on his chair, scaring him with a UsefulNotes/JosephStalin mask, and disassembling the bomber out from under him.
** In another 1940s short, ''WesternAnimation/DaffyTheCommando'' (1943), Hitler is compared to a skunk and Daffy hits him with a mallet near the end of the cartoon.
** Daffy, again, tricks Hitler, Goebbels and Göring in the 1944 cartoon ''WesternAnimation/PlaneDaffy''
** The 1942 short ''WesternAnimation/TheDucktators'' depicts Hitler as a duck taking over a barnyard. He is defeated along with UsefulNotes/BenitoMussolini and UsefulNotes/HidekiTojo in the end.
** The 1943 short ''WesternAnimation/TokioJokio'' has Hitler briefly appear for a joke involving Rudolph Hess.
** A 1945 ''WesternAnimation/BugsBunny'' cartoon, ''WesternAnimation/HerrMeetsHare'' has Bugs make mock of Hermann Goering in the same manner that he usually takes on Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam. At the end, Bugs scares off Hitler and Goering by dressing up as UsefulNotes/JosefStalin.
* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3eixgt_rwk&list=PLYhGTdSXr7Yw2Iw4tHFT0UxSk5zmCPuWB "Li'l Hitler" shorts]] feature a child version of Hitler at school trying to take over the desks of other students.
** Also, a series of "Dicks With Time Machines" sketches ends with the mischievous time traveler disrupting one of Hitler's speeches by projecting a picture of him on the toilet, making him into a laughingstock who can't get anyone's attention. (The title then changes to "''Heroes'' With Time Machines").
* In the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episodes "Hell on Earth 2006" and "Mr Hankey's Christmas Classics", he appears as a deranged resident of Hell. Cartman also admires him and frequently dresses up as him for fun, much to others' disgust.
-->'''Narrator:''' Adolf Hitler was a very, very naughty man!
* The Creator/TexAvery short ''WesternAnimation/BlitzWolf'' centers around a retelling of ''The Three Little Pigs'' where the Big Bad Wolf is a goofy, lupine caricature of Hitler.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' episode "Der Inflatable Fuhrer", it turns out that Hitler tried to smuggle his possessions out of UsefulNotes/NaziGermany in a balloon hidden inside his anus. The balloon burst, trapping Hitler's soul inside it. (ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext.) The ATHF convince Talking Balloon!Hitler to stop hating Jews by pointing out that most of his favorite celebrities are Jewish, but when the Fuhrer starts hating on gays instead, Frylock decides he's had enough and literally bursts Hitler's bubble.
* The WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck cartoon ''Disney/DerFuehrersFace''. All together now:
-->Ven der fueherer says, "Ve ist der master race,"\\
Ve heil! ''(Bronx cheer)'' Heil! ''(Bronx cheer)'' Right in der fuehrer's face!\\
Not to love der fuehrer ist a great disgrace,\\
So ve heil! ''(Bronx cheer)'' Heil! ''(Bronx cheer)'' Right in der fuehrer's face!
* Another Creator/{{Disney}} short, ''Disney/EducationForDeath'', is a relentlessly somber illustration of how Germans were conditioned from birth to the Nazi mentality -- in a revisionist version of ''Literature/SleepingBeauty'' taught to children, Hitler is shown as a buffoonish fairy tale hero. Yes, this film is so grim, they can use Hitler as comedy relief.
* Hitler made a few appearances on ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'' as well. Once, to illustrate Jay's unpopularity, Duke shows him test audiences giving Hitler a higher approval rating. In another episode, a French waiter at Cannes reminiscences about Hitler and Eva Braun vacationing on the beach.
* In the WesternAnimation/{{Popeye}} cartoon ''Seein' Red, White and Blue'', Popeye's punch (which already knocked Hirohito over onto his horse's ass) K.O.s Hitler, whose dialogue is relegated to a simple and elongated "B.O.!"
* One time on ''WesternAnimation/CodeMonkeys'', [=GameAvision=] gets sued by Hitler's descendants over a new game that Dave made about Hitler as part of a bet; they turn out to be a Nazi cabal trying to get a footing in America. While at Hitler Castle, Dave and Black Steve discover Hitler's frozen-in-carbonite body in a back room. They decide to thaw him out, beat him up, piss on him, and give him an atomic sit-up. He escaped and set off mind-controlled bears and Nazi troopers against the staff; a bunch of cowboys defeat his forces and Hitler shoots himself again. Another episode had a brief gag of the [=GameAvision=] freezer having a Hitler clone inside; Mr. Larrity claims it's there for "insurance".

* Creator/MelBrooks discusses this trope and [[http://www.usnews.com/usnews/culture/articles/010820/archive_038235.htm provides the quote]] above in a US News.com article.
* Lots of comedians like to shock people by imitating Hitler, down to the shouting, saluting and goose stepping.
* The British propaganda ministries often liked to lampoon Hitler and the Nazis, including [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYdmk3GP3iM setting Nazi newsreels to dance music]] and editing pictures of Hitler in grotesquely obscene ways. So did the Soviets, although [[http://lurkmore.so/images/1/1a/%D0%9A%D1%83%D0%BA%D1%80%D1%8B%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%BA%D1%81%D1%8B-%D0%90%D0%BB%D0%BA%D0%BE%D0%B3%D0%BE%D0%BB%D1%8C.jpg their humour]] was somewhat darker and more complex, leaning more towards satire (mocking Hitler's [[StraightEdgeEvil vegetarianism]], for example) rather than outright denigration. Even when Hitler was satirised, the human costs of the Soviet-German war were still paramount. For instance, there are several versions of '[[http://lurkmore.so/images/e/e6/%D0%9A%D1%83%D0%BA%D1%80%D1%8B%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%BA%D1%81%D1%8B-%D0%90%D0%BF%D0%BE%D1%84%D0%B5%D0%BE%D0%B7_%D0%B2%D0%BE%D0%B9%D0%BD%D1%8B_%D0%B2_%D0%BD%D0%BE%D0%B2%D0%BE%D0%BC_%D1%81%D1%82%D0%B8%D0%BB%D0%B5.jpg trying to spot The Final Victory from atop the literal mountain of German soldiers who died trying to make it happen so far']].
* According to Website/{{Cracked}}, [[http://i.crackedcdn.com/phpimages/photoshop/9/9/1/230991_slide.jpg?v=1 this picture]] was banned by the Führer for being "beneath one's dignity." So naturally, [[StreisandEffect it's all over the Internet now.]] Nice shorts, Adolf.
* Creator/GrouchoMarx literally danced on Hitler's grave, performing a two-minute Charleston on top of the ruins of the bunker where Hitler killed himself. However, he later remarked that it was "not much consolation."
* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_chic Nazi chic]] often enters this -- either [[http://i.imgur.com/nID2R.jpg intentionally though]] CrossesTheLineTwice, or because the Fuhrer is used in ridiculous ways, as [[Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver John Oliver]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wraq6VnXmGo discovered regarding Thailand]].
