  • Along with Night on Bald Mountain and The Mad Doctor, this is easily one of Disney's most chilling and powerful works. The scariest bit is probably the ending, where the long lines of marching soldiers are replaced by white crosses marked with swastikas.
    • And the end monologue about how the once-sweet children of Germany are now brainwashed into brutal, heartless monsters who only do, say, and believe in what the Nazis do, say, and believe.
