YMMV: Peace on Earth
  • Award Snub: This short lost an Academy Award to the Silly Symphonies short "The Ugly Duckling". Thankfully it got better awards later on, it won the Nobel Peace Prize (the only cartoon to ever do so) and is number 40 on Jerry Beck's list of the 50 Greatest Cartoons.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The war and the humans.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: It certainly took some courage to speak out against war in 1939, though the U.S. being neutral at the time probably helped. A couple of years later, every animation studio would be producing wartime cartoons that glorified war.
  • Tear Jerker
  • Values Resonance: Enough to warrant a remake being made during the Cold War.
  • What Could Have Been: Hugh and Rudy planned a feature-length remake of this short in the 1980s, but the idea never came to be.
