YMMV: Der Fuehrer's Face

  • Acceptable Targets: The cartoon insults Nazis generally, Hitler specifically. Could a target be any more acceptable? The racist caricature of Hirohito is arguably an exception, although certainly not at the time the cartoon was made.
  • Anvilicious: it's a Wartime Cartoon so it is to be expected
  • Ear Worm: The title song.
  • Harsher in Hindsight/"Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
    • The entire damn thing.
    • Special mention goes to the racist Japanese stereotyping.
    • And the third chorus mentioning people "working into their graves". Two years later, the world finds that hundreds of thousands, if not a million Jews, prisoners of war, and other 'undesirables' were used as slave laborers, many suffering that very fate, to say nothing of the millions simply killed outright.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Donald's nightmare has bullet shells with faces and arms.
    • One of the lines in the song is "Ist ve not the supermen." Superman later on fights the Nazis.
      • Especially funny if you remember that Millenium in Hellsing were Nazi vampires (i.e. "supermen").
    • While Donald is assembling the small bullet-like shells, we hear this line in the song: "If one little shell should blow him (Hitler) right to *CLANG!*" Two years later: he commits suicide by shooting himself.
  • Memetic Mutation: The image of Donald Duck performing the Nazi salute with a swastika armband was very popular on Image Boards due to the sheer "what."-ness that it induced if you are unfamiliar with the cartoon.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The aforementioned Disney Acid Sequence.
  • Overshadowed by Controversy: Thanks to the internet, a lot of people have heard that there's a Disney cartoon where Donald Duck is a Nazi. Very few of them, apparently, know that it's a scathing satire of Nazi Germany and instead assume that it's pro-Nazi propaganda. Hence, the cartoon is often accompanied with a "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The Nazis are bad, the USA is good. Thank your lucky stars and stripes you're an American.
  • Values Dissonance: The racist Japanese stereotyping, and Goering being portrayed as Camp, possibly Camp Gay.
